Let the raw natural beauty of Iceland, Greenland and Svalbard ignite your senses with Hurtigruten’s New Year Global Expedition Sale.
The sounds of Iceland
Travellers could be forgiven for mistaking the small and isolated island of Iceland for a sci-fi movie set. Here, the vast volcanic forces shape the earth, resulting in a symphony of the elements: geysers blast boiling water into the skies, waterfalls cut cascading shapes into the undulating mountains and fjords, hot springs and mudpots bubble around every corner, ice-covered volcanoes grumble underneath your feet, and glaciers calve suddenly into the lakes below. Even a seemingly dead-quiet night can become a once-in-a-lifetime experience in the blink of an eye, as the aurora borealis transforms a silent, peaceful evening into a kaleidoscopic light show.
