    Tiny, toytown-like Tórshavn is the capital of the Faroe Islands.

    Reykjavík is the world's northernmost capital. Its brightly painted wooden buildings contrast sharply with the stunning beauty of its setting beneath Mount Ejsa. Step ashore to explore, take the lift to the top of the Hallgrímskirkja Church for a panoramic view, or visit the fascinating Arbaer Folk Museum and the Saga Museum as Ambience spends an evening and a full day here, and perhaps take a nighttime trip outside the city in search of the Northern Lights, the enchanting Aurora Borealis, that flicker across Iceland’s autumn and winter skies.

    Today you’ll tie up at the small town of Grundarfjörður, situated in the north of the Snæfellsnes peninsula in the west of Iceland. Nestled between the sea and a mountain range, the town, which is framed by nearby Kirkjufel mountain, is a charming place to spend a day exploring.

     

  • Arrive: 07:00hrs

    Depart: 17:00hrs

    Perched dramtically on Iceland’s northwest coast, the town of Isafjordur is set on an arcing spit that extends out into Skutulsfjordur, the country’s most westerly fjord, and is encassed by towering peaks and the dark waters of the fjord.

  • Arrive: 07:00hrs

    Depart: 18:00hrs

    Akureyri, on Iceland's rugged north coast, is a thriving winter sports centre and home to a fascinating Botanical Garden. The area beyond is wondrously scenic, and today's excursion, to the Goðafoss Falls and volcanic Lake Myvatn, will highlight many of its delights.

  • Spend today relaxing on board.

  • Arrive: 07:00hrs

    Depart: 15:00hrs

    Ambience makes a rare call in Klaksvik today, capital of the Nordoyar (the six northeasternmost Faroe Isles). Many of the inhabitants of this remote Danish outpost are direct descendants of the Vikings, and still speak an ancient Norse language. Sheltered by conical mountains, Klaksvik is surrounded by a birdwatcher's paradise of green meadows that you'll be able to explore on today's optional shore excursion. 

  • Arrive: 08:00hrs

    Depart: 17:00hrs

    Your next port is the Shetland capital, Lerwick. This rugged, enchanting town is your gateway to a land of ancient legend, traditional crafts and an incredible abundance of bird-life. Wander the town, or join an excursion to the 3,000-year-old archaeological site at Jarlshof to discover its Bronze and Iron Age remains.

Further Information

  • New rules apply when travelling to European Union countries and Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland. The following are useful guidelines which will help you prepare for your next adventure. Note that these new rules do NOT apply when travelling within the United Kingdom or to the Channel Islands, the Isle of Man or the Republic of Ireland. You do require government issued ID when travelling by air though.

    Passport

    British passport holders need to have at least six months validity left on their passport and it needs to be less than ten years old; passports which have a longer validity than ten years are not valid for travel once the tenth anniversary of issue has passed. These rules do not apply to travel to Ireland where you can continue to use your passport as long as it’s valid for the length of your stay.

    Visa

    If you’re a tourist, you do not need a visa for short trips to most EU countries, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland. You’ll be able to stay for up to 90 days in any rolling 180-day period. Different rules will apply to Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus and Romania; if you visit these countries, visits to other EU countries will not count towards the 90-day total. Travel to Ireland will not change and stays there will not count towards the 90-day total.

    European Travel Information & Authorisation System (ETIAS)

    Towards the end of 2022, it is likely that non EU citizens will be required to apply online for an authorisation to visit most European countries. The current details suggest there will be a charge of €7 per person and the authorisation will be valid for all trips made to the EU in a three year period from issue. We will advise you of confirmed details prior to your tour’s departure.

    Border Control

    At border control, you may need to show proof of your return journey - your travel documentation issued by us will be sufficient for this. You will also need to use separate lanes from EU, EEA and Swiss citizens if manual checks are required.

    Healthcare Cover

    You should always get appropriate travel insurance with healthcare cover before you go abroad which covers pre-existing conditions. You should understand the terms and conditions of your travel insurance and be happy with its cover for healthcare and travel disruption. Newmarket sell a comprehensive travel insurance policy. Ask our travel consultants for more information.

    You should also apply for a UK Global Heath Insurance Card (GHIC) which lets you get urgent state healthcare in Europe at a reduced cost or sometimes for free. Note GHIC is only valid in EU countries and not in Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland.

    Mobile Roaming

    Roaming charges have been re-introduced by some UK providers when visiting the EU, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland. Prior to travel, please do check with your phone operator for the most up to date information.
