Giant blue icebergs, geysers that shoot water fountains into the air every 15 minutes, thundering waterfalls and northern lights that will take your breath away during the winter months - yes, there are millions of photographs about Iceland and Greenland, but nothing compares to a personal experience.
There are many different ways to discover Iceland and Greenland, but there is one particularly authentic way to experience the two islands in the North Atlantic with Iceland ProCruises.
Iceland ProCruises is the first company founded in Iceland to offer sea voyages around Iceland and Greenland. The 210 passengers of the OCEAN DIAMOND await unforgettable impressions. With an Icelandic team on board you will experience the charm of the Northerners from the start. But maybe you ask yourself why a trip with a small ship is the best way to discover the North?
The ice-reinforced hull and the relatively small size of the ship make an expedition-like cruise possible that is unlike conventional cruises. Remote bays and fjords can be reached without guests having to use tender boats to get there. This saves a lot of time, which surely can be used better for exciting excursions ashore.
The sea voyages of Iceland ProCruises, are primarily focused on the destination. During the cruise, lecturers share their expert knowledge in presentations, e.g. about northern lights on the Northern Lights and Whales cruise. With the partly Icelandic expedition team, you have the opportunity to experience Iceland with real locals. Expedition leader Hermann Gudmundsson will show you his homeland, especially its incredible nature. The tour guide and professional opera singer Arndis Halla also contributes to a true Icelandic experience with her breathtaking singing of Icelandic songs and stories about elves. We also have local partners in Greenland and use their resources whenever possible, whether it's authentic local food or entertaining performances and excursions.
In addition, it is the personal and familiar atmosphere on board that characterizes a journey on the OCEAN DIAMOND. Thanks to our dedicated expedition team, travellers always have contact persons they can get in touch with if they have questions or concerns. It is the small number of passengers that makes it possible to quickly make contact with like-minded people, tour guides and the expedition team.
One of the biggest advantages of a cruise is that your accommodation is basically traveling with you. You only have to check in once, without packing your suitcase every night - it couldn't be more comfortable. That way you always have a place to return to and rest, after a long day full of new impressions. You will collect these impressions on various shore excursions offered by Iceland ProCruises.
Iceland ProCruises’ OCEAN DIAMOND has been traveling around Iceland and Greenland since 2015. The cabins of the expedition ship have been completely renovated in 2018. Unlike larger cruise ships, the OCEAN DIAMOND is able to reach smaller harbours and a wider variety of regions. In addition, you can enjoy many included services on a sea voyage with the OCEAN DIAMOND, such as a three-course dinner menu and an entertainment program on board.
The personal service on the OCEAN DIAMOND is also worth mentioning. Travelers benefit from excellent service, as the ratio of crew to guests is about 1:2. The dress code is casual, so the elegant evening dress can be left at home. Instead, most guests wear comfortable weatherproof clothes, to be prepared for adventures on shore.
A sea journey with Iceland ProCruises is, in any case, unforgettable, authentic and personal. Come aboard the OCEAN DIAMOND and discover the incomparable natural landscapes of Iceland and Greenland. For last-minute travellers there are attractive special offers on selected departures.
