Your sailing trip

Iceland Sailing Expedition. Reykjavík to Thorlakshofn

FANTASTIC LANDSCAPES AT THE EDGE OF THE WORLD

We invite you to embark on a fantastic trip to the shores of Iceland on a yacht. Iceland is a dream destination, though sailing allows seeing the island from a whole new angle. We will head for volcanic beaches and dunes, waterfalls and black dolphins. Hot springs, geysers, and volcanoes – everything in Iceland boils and is ready to explode any minute.

 

Why Iceland?

 

-   Incredible and diverse nature

Black beaches and active volcanos, hot springs and cold northern sea, whales and dolphins. The Icelandic nature will surprise even the most experienced travelers.

 

-   High season without tourists

Summer is the busiest time in Iceland, but you can successfully escape the crowds by traveling on a boat. Sailing allows you to be flexible and plan your trip to avoid the busloads of tourists.

 

-   Experience more, spend less

Iceland is a very expensive country, especially during the high season. While yachting you will discover even more stunning places inaccessible by car and save a lot on housing and food.

Itinerary

Day 1
Reykjavik
Arrival to the marina. Check-in after lunch. Group meeting, introducing the crew. Reykjavík is the most northern capital city in the world. We will explore the cozy streets of the old town, thermal pools and the symbol of the city – the ancient volcano Esja.
Day 2
Reykjavik - Keblavik
In the 70's Keflavík was called the city of musicians, and now cultural life is pulsing through the city veins. Musicians from all over the world still gather here. There is even The Icelandic Museum of Rock ‘n’ Roll. The most famous landmark in the Keflavík area is the Blue Lagoon, a complex of thermal pools of different temperatures. We will certainly visit.
Day 3
Keflavik - Grindavik
We will sail around the Reykjanes Peninsula and end up in Grindavík, a small town with a population of about 2,800 people. The name of the city is translated as "black dolphin bay.” The city is located in a cozy harbor where locals have traditionally been engaged in whaling and fishing. The first settlers appeared on the territory of the present Grindavík back in 934.
Day 4
Grindavik - Thorlakshofn
Not far from Grindavík the Krýsuvík volcanic system is situated, we will go there in the morning. Here everything boils, gurgles, spits dirt and boiling water, and the surrounding landscape is so fantastic that feels like another planet, young and hot. After lunch, we will sail to Thorlakshofn with amazing volcanic beaches and Arnarker Cave nearby.
Day 5
Thorlakshofn - Vestmannaeyar
Vestmannaeyjar is a small archipelago (about 16 km²) off the south coast of Iceland. It is a resting place for migratory birds during seasonal flights. Some species even nest in the islands’ cliffs. Surtsey is t newest island of the archipelago and one of the youngest in the world; it emerged on November 14, 1963. The Bjork’s legendary house is hidden on one of the islands.
Day 6
Vestmannaeyar
We will explore the archipelago and go fishing.
Day 7
Vestmannaeyar - Thorlakshofn
Going back to Thorlakshofn. If anyone wants to return to Reykjavík, it’s only 52 km away. Or you can spend an evening walking along the deserted beaches and enjoy the cozy cafes. Disembark before 09:00. If you wish, you can continue your journey through Iceland.
