14 ICELAND CIRCUMNAVIGATION Discover the Island of Contrasts Experience an unforgettable journey around Iceland onboard the OCEAN DIAMOND. Discover this mystical land steeped in Viking traditions and volcanic landscapes rarely seen anywhere else on earth. This voyage reveals a diverse array of natural wonders and the Icelandic way of life. A range of excit- ing shore excursions offers countless ways to interact with Iceland’s culture, nature, history and people. Day 1 | Reykjavik Use your leisure time in Reykjavik to discover the unique charm of the world’s northernmost capital. The OCEAN DIAMOND docks in Old Reykjavik Harbor in the heart of the city, a five-minute stroll from the main squares, shopping and dining. The ship departs in the evening. Day 2 | Stykkisholmur Stykkisholmur is the starting point of our adventures on the Snaefellnes Peninsula. Often called “Iceland in Miniature” because of its diverse landscapes, the area is home to bird-rich Breidafjordur Bay and Snaefellsjokull glacier, which sits atop a 700,000-year-old dormant volcano that was featured in the Jules Verne novel Journey to the Center of the Earth. Day 3 | Isafjordur Today‘s destination is Isafjordur, an idyllic town in the Westfjords re- gion. This secluded peninsula is connected to the Icelandic mainland by only a narrow strip of land and includes many roadless areas where cars have never been. The landscape includes jaw-dropping views of dramatic fjords carved by ancient glaciers, sheer table mountains that plunge into the sea and pristine North Atlantic vege- tation.
