Explorers of the North Atlantic since 1982

Travelogues from Iceland and the Faroe Islands

We love our destinations - and the journey to get there. But it can be a challenge to write about the Faroe Islands and Iceland. So why not let our explorers tell their own stories.

      The weather was lovely with sunny spells and no wind. This meant that passengers flocked to Norröna’s stern as we lifted anchor.

      And for two weeks in October 2014 I joined the Smyril Line Viking Cruise. Personal contact matters to me when I book a holiday. When I called Smyril Line I received a warm and positive response to my questions, it was very nice to feel welcome.

      We booked a trip by calling Smyril Line’s lovely travel agents, who helped us tailor our holiday precisely to our desires. Saturday October 11, 2014, became the starting point for a spur-of-the-moment trip to the Faroe Islands and Iceland with experiences and landscapes we had never even imagined.

      The trip started on the 6th of September 2014 in Hirtshals, where Norröna was waiting for us in the pleasant weather. We had been looking forward to this cruise and were excited to discover what awaited us.

      Here comes my report and photos from my voyage onboard Smyril Line's M/S "Norröna" on a 3-nights sailing from Hirtshals, Denmark to Seydisfjordur, Iceland via Tórshavn, Faroe Islands. I know quite a few have looked forward to hear more about this experience.
