Reykjavik to London
Steamy volcanic vents, windswept coastlines, and cozy village pubs enthrall and delight as you circle Iceland and explore the northern expanses of the British Isles. Step into Hengifoss Waterfall mists—one of Iceland’s highest falls—prior to lingering past midnight beneath pink, translucent summer skies during your Seydisfjordur overnight stay. Ride Icelandic horses beyond snow-capped fjords outside Akureyi. Drift through a narrow gorge and explore the many hidden grottoes along the Faroe Island coastline. Quaff amber ales and recount your Skara Brae discoveries in a Kirkwall paneled pub. Sip Scotch whisky and watch a bagpipe performance inside the walls of Edinburgh Castle during an overnight port stay. Touch the weathered Belfast gantries that hoisted beams and steel plates onto the legendary RMS Titanic more than a century ago. Tour Cornwall vineyards on Scilly and savor local wines paired with artisan breads and rich Cornish cheeses.

Seydisfjord is 11 miles of long, narrow, beautiful waterway surrounded by high mountains that ends at the town of Seydisfjordur, known for its old multi-colored wooden buildings and cascading waterfalls even in the town.  This is home of the Skalanes Nature Reserve with its wide variety of wildlife including more than 45 bird species.  The first high-voltage electricity in Iceland was opened here in 1913 and is still in operation today.

VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 7: Grundarfjordur
Beautiful Grundarfjordur is located between a mountain range and the sea.  The road nearby crosses a lava field that is partially warm so snow does not always stick there. The main attraction of the area is Snæfellsjokull National Park full of regal glaciers, lava fields, waterfalls, caves, calderas, and basalt cliffs. The peninsula there received the EARTHCHECK Sustainable Community Award in 2010, the first area in Iceland to win such an award.
