Thursday, July 17 - REYKJAVIK, ICELAND

Just as Iceland is a unique country, rugged and remote, yet modern and enjoying Nordic standards of affluence, Reykjavik is a beautifully diverse capital city. As Iceland's capital and its main population center, Reykjavik offers a fascinating mixture of the traditional and the very technically advanced. In addition, its natural beauty leaves a lasting impression. Visit the remarkable solfatara fields of Krýsuvík where you'll discover an expanse of steaming volcanic vents and boiling springs, framed dramatically by a range of multi-colored hills.

Friday, July 18 - CRUISING THE ATLANTIC OCEAN

Saturday, July 19 - DJUPIVOGUR, ICELAND

Amongst the endless majesty of sheer-sided mountains etched with waterfalls in Iceland's sparsely populated Eastfords, the small coastal village of Djúpivogur offers something magical: Mt. Búlandstindur, a pyramid-shaped basalt mountain peaking at 3,507 feet that's widely believed to be a focus of mystical forces. Nestled by the picturesque fjord of Hamarsfjörður, the town was a trading center as far back as 1589. Visit a historic timber building called Langabúð, constructed in 1790, to admire the sculptures of Djúpivogur’s own Ríkarður Jónsson (1888-1977). Take a boat tour to the island of Papey - named after Irish hermits who sailed to Iceland in the 7th and 8th centuries - to see a colony of Atlantic Puffins.

Sunday, July 20 - ESKIFJORDUR, ICELAND

Rare is a town that greets you with a meandering river, waterfalls, and a jaw-dropping mountain, but Eskifjordur is a rare place indeed. Located on one of Iceland's magnificent fjords, this quaint fishing village offers spectacular scenery (it's Iceland, after all); an outdoor, geothermal-heated pool; a 'spar' (calcite) mine that dates to the 17th century; maritime museum housed in an 1816 building; even a privately held collection of rare stones you're invited to see for yourself. But it's Eskifjordur's surroundings that your senses will celebrate, especially the village's pride and joy, Holmatindur, standing over 3,200 feet high, and Holmanes Nature Reserve, the cliffs provide views to last a lifetime.

Monday, July 21 - SEYDISFJORDUR, ICELAND

Cruising the fjord that ends with picturesque Seydisfjordur, it's easy to understand how its small populace produces such a thriving artistic community. Surrounded by soaring Mt. Bjólfur (3,560 feet) to the west and Strandartindur (3,314 feet) to the east, with waterfalls cascading in every direction, you'll undoubtedly feel the transformative powers of this Eastfjords town. A stroll past smartly painted wooden houses reveals small charms like the Bláa  Kirkjan (Blue Church), the quaint star of many a Seydisfjordur photo, that perfectly embody this city's unique style. Watch for reindeer on hillsides and seals and porpoises in the cold waters.
