Iceland-based Iceland ProCruises has chartered an ice-strengthened expedition ship, the 224-passenger Ocean Diamond, from May through September for the sailings.
Among the itineraries the line is offering is a 10-day trip around Iceland starting in Reykjavik that includes stops in such small Icelandic towns as Isafjördur in the fjord-lined Westfjords region and Siglufjördur, once the center of the Icelandic herring industry. A visit to the Eastfjords region brings picturesque fishing villages, steep slopes and panoramic sea views.
Along the way, passengers will have the chance to horseback ride, paddle kayaks in idyllic fjords, hike and bike.
Other itineraries include an eleven-day trip from Iceland to Greenland and back that includes a visit to the Snafellsnes Peninsula and Breidafjördur Bay on Iceland's West coast as well Isafjördur and the Westfjords region before the vessel continues on to Greenland.
Stops in Greenland on the trip include the small island of Hvallssey, where passengers have the opportunity to explore some of the best preserved Viking ruins of Greenland.
The itinerary also includes stops in the Greenland town of Narsarsuaq and the small settlement of Qassiarsuk, founded by legendary Viking rebel and leader Erik the Red, who famously named the area "green land" because of the region's fjords and green, fertile valleys.
Fares for the trips start at $1,431 per person, based on triple occupancy.
Iceland ProCruises is a division of Iceland ProTravel, the leading tour operator in Iceland.
