In the summer the Fjords are a delight. Sailing between the huge mountains, wondering how you are not hearing the sound of the ship scratch the rocks is incredible. Classical music often plays in a section of the ship to set the mood, but you feel like a Viking on an adventure.
Sometimes, sandwiched between two Fjord cruises is a cruise to Iceland chasing the midnight sun. This year the Azura makes this fantastic cruise and people will travel from all over the world to do it. This year the Azura travels there on the 30th June. See itinerary here. If you are booking please book direct using this link to P&O. A number of people are chatting about this cruise and going, so join in. Click the Azura Chat picture.
This route normally goes from Southampton, north stopping at Kirkwall then Lerwick in Shetland which is where we made the movie Devil’s Gate which starred Laura Fraser. It will be beautiful at that time of the year. You are then straight to Reykjavik, Isafjordur, Akureyri then back via Belfast, then Cobh before returning to Southampton. There are two full days on this particular cruise to enjoy Reykjavik. You will have the opportunity of many splendid tours like the Hraunfoss and Barnafoss waterfalls or the Blue Lagoon geothermal spa. In Isafjordur you can experience the magnificent natural beauty of the West Fjords. Then catch the midnight sun from Akureyri’s stunning setting on Iceland’s longest fjord – Eyjafjordur.
In the meantime, enjoy the majesty of sailing between the fjords.
