Reykjavík, the world’s most northerly capital, is a small but bustling port city abundant with Viking museums, shops, and a lively atmosphere. This MSC Northern Europe Cruises destination boasts a range of nearby attractions including a geothermal blue lagoon, a stunning waterfall, and blissful lakes.

 
MSC Cruises excursions offer plenty of exciting things to see including:
 
• Gullfoss Waterfall
• The Þingvellir National Park
• Bathing in the Blue Lagoon
 
Discover Iceland’s breathtaking Gullfoss Waterfall on an MSC Cruises excursion. This incredible aquatic spectacle, just a short drive from the Haukadalur Valley, is regarded as one of the most outstanding in Europe. Admire the spectacular scenery of this unique natural environment, a protected nature reserve since 1979. The Gullfoss Waterfall is a profound, inspiring experience and offers a beautiful backdrop for photographs.
 
Þingvellir National Park, located in a valley northeast of Reykjavík, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, established in 1928. An MSC Cruises excursion will see you discovering this fascinating habitat set on the Silfra rift — the tectonic margin between the North American and Eurasian plates. From the viewpoint, marvel at an array of striking landscapes including the Mid-Atlantic Ridge.  You’ll also spot the original location of Iceland's Alþingi parliament, founded in the 930!
 
At the heart of a rugged volcanic field lies the beautiful Blue Lagoon, an indulgent MSC Cruises excursion. Here, you’ll bathe in the lake’s warm 37° to 39°C water, surrounded by a lava wall. The lagoon’s geothermal seawater is rich in minerals and contains revitalising properties for both body and soul. One of Iceland’s principal attractions, this amazing body of water should be on your list of must-visit places in Iceland.

    A vacation in Iceland is like discovering another world. Even if you’ve imagined it, this island will amaze you.


    Not many people know that Reykjavík, the Icelandic capital, has an intense artistic and social life. Nor that the Icelandic nature is so luxuriant because temperatures in the summer are incredibly mild or that in the winter, when the skies are painted by the colours of the northern lights, it’s not as cold as one might think.

    Iceland is bound to attract you with its pools of boiling mud, the incredible geysers, the glaciers and the waterfalls, and more. Try indulging in bird-watching at Lake Mývatn, or take an excursion to meet the whales, Iceland’s sea is one of the best places in the world for watching these big cetaceans.
    If you’re attracted to ice, visit Jökulsárlón, the largest frozen lagoon of the country which forms where the Breiðamerkurjökull glacier meets the waters of the Atlantic Ocean. 


    And if you intend to relax, you should know that there are more than 170 geothermal pools in the country, like the splendid and therapeutic Blue Lagoon, about 40 km from Reykjavík, a large pool fed by a spring that pours out water at a temperature of between 37 and 39 °C, rich in minerals and with therapeutic properties.
