CRUISE SHIP PORTS

In Iceland there are a few ports large enough for cruise ships to dock and most of them arrive during the summer time.

We at Iceland Guided Tours and our syster company FAB Travel, offer high quality, small group tours from the main ports servicing the passengers of the Cruise Ships.

The main ports we service are Reykjavik, the capital in the south of Iceland, in Akureyri the capital of the north, Ísafjörður in the west of Iceland and Seyðisfjörður in the east. We also offer tours for selected Cruise Ships arriving in Grundarfjörður.

In Reykjavik there are two major ports with Hafnarbakki being right in the center of Reykjavik and Skarfabakki being the more common stop just a few minutes away. Ideal starting point for a journey to the Golden Circle or a visit to the South Coast of Iceland. Two of Icelands most popular sightseeing destinations with glorious waterfalls, erupting Geysers, black sand beaches and glaciers.

ÍSAFJÖRÐUR PORT

Up in the north western part of Iceland you will find some of the most remote and hard to get to areas. This includes the old fishing village Ísafjörður. Amazing mountain views and magnificent waterfalls await those that venture out with us into the wild.

SEYÐISFJÖRÐUR PORT

Seyðisfjörður harbour provides an ideal destination for Cruise Ships. The peaceful village, shaped by Norwegian entrepreneurs over a century ago, lies sheltered by dramatic snow-flecked mountains. The colourful Norwegian-style houses render this village unique in Iceland and walking trails around town, out along the coast or by the Fjarðará River, allow for many pleasureable and relaxing experiences. We offer you to see many of  East Icelands´s pearls around Lögurinn Lake, including, Fellabær, Skriðuklaustur manor estate, Fljótsdalsstöð Power plant, Hallormsstaðaskógur forrest and Gufufoss waterfall.

GRUNDARFJÖRÐUR PORT

Grundarjrörður harbour provides an ideal destination for Cruise Ships. Grundarfjörður offers easy access to both the Snæfellsnes peninsula and west Iceland, combining the breathtaking natural beauty of the peninsula with the rich cultural heritage of the whole of west Iceland. The Snæfellsnes glacier is a magnificent attraction, as is the wonderful bird life in the area. Points of historical and cultural interest are dotted all over the peninsula, with The Eyrbyggja Heritage Centre in Grundarfjörður, the Norwegian House in Stykkishólmur, Bjarnarhöfn shark-curing farm and the ECO-tours from Brekkubær at Hellnar, being just a few examples. The major west Iceland historical sights of Eiriksstaðir and Reykholt/Snorrastofa are also within driving distance from Grundarfjörður. The people on the peninsula are friendly and happy to receive visitors.
