Day 2: Snaefellsnes Peninsula

Sparkling fjords, dramatic volcanic peaks, sheer sea cliffs and vast lava flows beckon as you cruise in and around the Snaefellsnes Peninsula. Look for the vast concentrations of bird species nesting on the treacherous Látrabjarg cliffs, and marine life in the waters of the Peninsula.

Discovery: With a flexible itinerary and depending on the conditions, take Scenic Discovery excursions by kayak or onshore for landings.

Day 4: East Coast Fjords

Over the coming days explore Greenland's east coast, the fjords of Skjoldungen and Prins Christian Sund. Carving a breathtaking, naturally-formed path separating the mainland from the islands of Cape Farewell, Prins Christian Sund is one of Greenland's most scenic waterways. 105 kilometres in length, and flanked by magnificent glaciers and granite cliffs, this narrow passage is only accessible during the summer, when the largest ice blockades melt away. Scenic Eclipse brings you close to the glaciers, huge icebergs and imposing peaks for unmissable photo opportunities.
