DJUPIVOGUR

You can leave your phone behind as you step out into this Icelandic town, which has won awards celebrating its leisurely outlook and stubborn rebellion against the frenetic pace of modern life. After all, who needs emails and notifications when you have some of the most humbling monochrome scenery and gashed fjords, waiting on your doorstep? Sitting on a peninsula to the south-east of Iceland, the glacial approach to life here wins many hearts. View more

A place where hammers knock on metal in workshops, artists ladle paint onto canvases, and wild ponies roam across mountains, Djupivogur is an uninhibited artistic hub - full of makers and creatives. The most expansive project is the 34 egg sculptures that dot the coastline, created by the Icelandic artist, Sigurður Guðmundsson. Each egg represents a different native bird species. Fishing remains the primary industry, and you can savour the soft fruits of the labour in restaurants serving up smoked trout and fish soup within their cosy confines. Wander the surrounding landscapes, where snow-freckled mountains rise, and lazy seals lie on dark rock beaches, to feel Djupivogur's natural inspiration seeping under your skin. Alive with greens and golds in summer, further ventures reveal bright blue glaciers and the sprawling waterfalls of Vatnajökull National Park. The cliff-hugging puffins of Papey Island are a short boat ride away, while Bulandstindur Mountain's pyramid shape is a stand out even among these fairy-tale landscapes.

Excursions in DJUPIVOGUR

Jökulsárlón Cruise and Scenic Drive

Experience the unrivalled beauty of the Jökulsárlón Lagoon during this incredibly scenic, full-day sightseeing excursion via coach and boat.


Djupivogur, Höfn Village, Mountains, Glacier Tongues

Depart the pier for the scenic, approximately 1.5-hour drive to the beautiful and serene village of Höfn. En route, pass by the spectacular mountains of Djúpivogur, including Búlandstindur and Teigarhorn, which lays claim to having the finest deposit of zeolites in Iceland. After a comfort stop in Höfn, take a short drive through this town and its dramatic landscape, then continue on between the mountains, where icy blue glacier tongues penetrate downwards to the low ground.


Vatnajökull Ice Cap, Pastoral Landscape

Towering high above this beautiful setting rises the mighty Vatnajökull Ice Cap, the third-largest in the world and largest outside of the Arctic regions. Head westward through pastoral landscape squeezed between the shifting black sands on the seaward side, and cliffs and glacial outflows inland. Here, agriculture and wildlife exist in harmony; the grasslands are rich in wildflowers, and harbour a variety of nesting birds. Your next stop is at the Jökulsárlón Lagoon.


Jökulsárlón Lagoon Cruise, Icebergs, Lunch, Höfn Village

This approximately 328-foot-deep (about 100-metre-deep) glacial river lagoon was carved from the glacier Breiðamerkurjökull, and is filled with large icebergs. The glacial lagoon began to form around 1950; before this, the Jökulsá River flowed from under the glacier directly out to sea, swiftly and dangerously. Today, the Jökulsárlón Lagoon is popular with visitors who cruise on the waters between the majestic icebergs. Upon arrival, embark a boat for an approximately 30-minute cruise along the pristine waters and incredibly beautiful surrounds of this glacial lagoon. Following your cruise, re-board your coach and proceed for lunch at a local restaurant. After lunch, re-board your coach and return to the village of Höfn for a comfort stop, then re-board your coach and commence the approximately 1.5-hour drive back to the pier.


Please note: This tour involves a moderate amount of walking for approximately 437 yards (about 400 metres), at times over uneven, gravel and grassy surfaces, with a few steps to negotiate to get on/off the coach and embark/disembark the boat. This tour is not suitable for guests with a fear of heights, guests prone to motion sickness, guests with a fear of tunnels, guests with limited mobility, and guests who utilise a wheelchair. Guests are advised to wear warm, comfortable clothing in layers with sturdy, flat, closed-toe and non-slip walking shoes, and bring sun protection and a weatherproof jacket from the ship. Helmets and life vests are provided for the lagoon cruise. The driving distance between the pier and Höfn is approximately 1.5 hours in each direction. A signed waiver is required to participate on this tour. The tour sequence may vary. Operation of this tour is subject to weather conditions.

Djúpivogur, Moors, Valleys, Mountains and Waterfalls

Depart the pier for a scenic drive through the valleys and moors near the lovely village of Djúpivogur. Along the way, marvel at the rugged beauty of Iceland's diverse topography, which features an abundance of magnificent landscapes, nature, waterfalls, mountains, and reindeer.


East Fjords, Towering Mountains and Coastal Views.

Your off-road excursion also offers wonderful panoramic vistas of the impressive East Fjords, which feature towering mountains scaled by bare rock faces, and ridged by the forces of weather and wind. They tumble from lofty heights, and plunge vertically into the sea. At the conclusion of your Jeep tour, commence the drive back to the pier.

Infrastructure is limited in Djúpivogur; transportation and guides are often used for more than one tour. Although frequently encountered on this type of tour, animal sightings are not guaranteed.

Vatnajökull Adventure and sightseeing

Explore the spectacular panoramic beauty of one of the largest glaciers in the world during this unforgettable, full-day sightseeing excursion.


Djúpivogur, Höfn, Mýrar District, Mountains, Glacier Tongues, Cliffs, Atlantic Ocean, Wildlife

Depart the pier for the scenic, approximately 1.5-hour drive to Höfn. Following a comfort stop and short drive through this town and its dramatic landscape, your drive continues on through the beautiful Mýrar District, where steep mountains rise on the landward side and the Atlantic Ocean surges on the other. Between the mountains, icy blue glacier tongues penetrate downwards to the low ground. Towering high above this beautiful setting rises the mighty Vatnajökull Ice Cap, the third-largest in the world and largest outside of the Arctic regions. Head westward through pastoral landscape squeezed between the shifting black sands on the seaward side, and cliffs and glacial outflows inland. Here, agriculture and wildlife exist in harmony; the grasslands are rich in wildflowers, and harbour a variety of nesting birds.


Skálafellsjökull Glacier, Vatnajökull Ice Cap, Glacier Walk, Glacier Hut, Lunch

Leaving the highway, take an exhilarating ride up a tortuous road to the Skálafellsjökull Glacier and onto the Vatnajökull Ice Cap. This hair-raising ascent offers spectacular panoramic views of your surrounds. Upon arrival, switch to a glacier vehicle, then venture into this brilliant white, majestic and peaceful world, where thrilling trails lead over the wide expanse of snow. Experience Europe's largest glacier at very close quarters, with the added thrill of knowing that several active volcanoes are lurking under the hundreds of metres of ice below. At the conclusion of this unique glacial experience, proceed for lunch at Smyrlabjörg then re-board your coach and drive back down to the coast. After a comfort stop at Höfn, re-board your coach and commence the approximately 1.5-hour drive back to the pier.


Please note: This tour involves a moderate amount of walking for approximately 109 yards-219 yards (about 100 metres-200 metres), at times over uneven, gravel and snowy surfaces, with a few steps to negotiate to get on/off the coach and glacier vehicle.

DAY ONE - Wednesday, July 1, 2020 - Bordeaux/St. Pierre des Corps (Tours)/Loire Valley/Montbazon


Bordeaux, Train-Ride to St. Pierre des Corps (Tours)

After collecting your packed lunch and disembarking the ship, meet your guide and transfer to the Bordeaux Train Station. Upon arrival, walk towards the quay and board your TGV train for the picturesque, approximately two-hour ride towards St. Pierre des Corps (Tours), with lunch on board the train. En route, pass through the Loire Valley, a region renowned for its spectacular natural and architectural heritage. Its cultural abundance of châteaux has earned the Loire Valley its designation as an UNESCO World Heritage Site.


Château de Villandry

Upon arrival in Tours, board a coach for the drive to the Château de Villandry, is one of the last great chateaux built on the banks of the Loire during the Renaissance. The Château de Villandry has the distinctive feature of never being the residence of a king, but of Jean Le Breton, Minister of Finance for François Ist.


Château and Gardens Tour

When he arrived at Villandry in 1532, Jean Le Breton drew on his exceptional architectural experience acquired on a large number of sites, including the Château of Chambord, which he supervised and directed on behalf of the Crown over many years. At the foot of the château, overlooking the River Cher, gardens were laid whose splendour already earned the estate a reputation outside the Loire Valley. Upon arrival, take a guided tour of these exquisite gardens.


Amboise City and Castle

Next, re-board your coach and head to the town of Amboise, located along the River Loire. Perched above the city and overlooking the river, Amboise Castle was residence of French kings from the 15th century to the 19th century, and its destiny is inextricably linked to the history of France. Numerous literary figures and artists were invited here, including Leonardo da Vinci, whose tomb is preserved at the château. Thus, this Royal château is the expression of French-style luxury.


Amboise Castle Tour, Clos Lucet Mansion Tour

Upon arrival, take a guided walking tour of Amboise Castle. From its balconies, roofs and terraced gardens, enjoy the same breath-taking panoramic vistas of the Loire landscape enjoyed by kings of old. Leaving Amboise Castle, a short transfer brings you to the nearby Clos Lucet, mansion of Leonardo da Vinci. During your unforgettable guided tour, explore the heart of da Vinci's life and work. At the conclusion of your visit, re-board your coach and transfer to your hotel, the 5-star, 18th-century-styled Chateau d'Artigny, another impressive castle testimony of the Loire Valley. After check-in, the remainder of the afternoon is at your leisure.

Loire Valley, Château de Chenonceau

After breakfast at the hotel, meet your guide and depart for a visit to the crowned jewels of the Loire Valley, Château de Chenonceau and Chateau de Chambord. The history of the Château de Chenonceau is defined by an almost uninterrupted succession of women who built, embellished, protected, restored and saved it. The first château was a medieval château dating from the 12th century and 13th century, of which only the dungeon remains. The château in its current form, unique architecture and river-crossing structure was built between 1513 and 1517.

At the conclusion of your visit, re-board your coach and commence the approximately 1.5-hour drive back to the hotel.


A three-course dinner is served at the hotel.


Overnight in a Deluxe Room at the Hotel Chateau d'Artigny - Montbazon.


DAY THREE - Friday, July 3, 2020 - Montbazon/Saint-Malo


After breakfast at the hotel and check-out, depart for the scenic, approximately five-hour coach transfer to the port of Saint-Malo, with one-two comfort stops en route. Upon arrival at the pier in Saint-Malo, embark the ship.


Please note: This Mid-Voyage Land Adventure requires an extensive amount of walking, at times over uneven, cobblestone, rocky, and natural surfaces and inclines, with a few steps to negotiate to get on/off the coach and board/de-board the train, and at the sites visited. This tour is not suitable for guests with limited mobility and guests who utilise a wheelchair.
