While driving the Ring Road around Iceland is a flexible and economical way to explore Iceland, cruising offers lots of benefits, too. Our seven-day cruise on Windstar, offered only in July, allowed us to wake up in the morning to scenes like this:
and say goodnight to the midnight sun with views like this:
While the ship travels from one port to the next, you don’t have to drive. You can relax and enjoy a good book.
The shore excursions arranged by Windstar offered us plenty of adventures: hiking a glacier (photos coming in future blog), whale watching, bird watching, hiking to a waterfall and sight seeing flights in small planes.
We also made some good friends on this small ship, which accommodates around 210 passengers. It was fun, and we have great memories. Highly recommend for 2018!
