Welcoming, enchanting, with an undercurrent of the undiscovered. This legendary journey begins in Reykjavik with an incredible overnight stay. With a cosmopolitan look and small-town soul, Reykjavik offers thrilling art, architecture, and gastronomy alongside an old-world charm that is sure to capture you.
Next up is isafjordur, a remote fishing community with a quaint Old Town and a lively arts and music scene. If you love horses, you’re in luck–your next destination, Skagafjordur, is the only county in Iceland where horses outnumber people. During an overnight stay in Akureyri, marvel at snow-capped mountain peaks, stunning fjords, and lush countryside. Known as the whale-watching capital of Iceland, the waters surrounding coastal Husavik are home to humpbacks, minke, and the mammoth blue whale. Then our last Iceland stop, Seydisfjordur, boasts some of the country’s most unique architecture, natural beauty, and friendly faces. A soothing day at sea prepares you for the lively and pretty port of Portree on the Isle of Skye. Lined with bright houses, fringed by cliffs, this is a great starting point to discover the spectacular Trotternish Ridge.
From the deep blue sea to the land of all things green, in the cultural city of Belfast, explore the museum dedicated to the famous RMS Titanic, constructed on the very site where the ill-fated ship was built. Or take a scenic drive down the Antrim Coast to the Giant’s Causeway, Northern Ireland’s only UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Our journey comes to an end in Dublin, a UNESCO City of Literature. As friendly as the many pubs you’ll find during your visit, you’ll have no trouble lingering over the vibrant art, history, hip cafes, and the city’s beautiful river. Naturally you’ll want to pop into the Guinness Storehouse for a pint of the “black stuff” (or two) and raise your glass to Arthur.
