Broadway on the High Seas: Iceland

Sailing roundtrip from Reykjavik, the world’s most northerly capital, we visited the fjörds, volcanos, geysers, and waterfalls of Iceland’s majestic natural landscape. Playbill Travel brought the best of Broadway to the edge of the Arctic Circle amongst the comfort of Ponant’s five-star expedition yacht, Le Soléal, from July 3-July 10, 2018.

A land of extremes perched on the edge of the Arctic Circle, Iceland boasts a range of wild and ruggedly beautiful landscapes where wind, stone, fire, and ice mingle. Here, the volcanoes, geysers, fjörds, and wild expanses create a unique, surreal atmosphere. Playbill Travel and the brightest stars of Broadway sailed aboard Ponant’s five-star expedition yacht Le Soléal on a comprehensive exploration of this magical island. From Reykjavik, the world’s most northerly capital, we sailed the rugged fjörds of northwest Iceland; we saw the fabulous wildlife and Atlantic puffin in colonies on Grimsey Island; we visited the small Icelandic town of Akureyri before venturing to nearby Lake Myvatn and the astonishing Godafoss waterfall; and we visited Heimaey Island, home to the infamous Eldfell volcano. We experienced the natural phenomena of this wild, romantic island in the comfort and safety of the Le Soléal, a 264-guest vessel carefully designed to offer the highest standards of luxury, safety, and ecologically sound cruising in the world’s remotest regions.
