Beyond Cruises by Group IST will launch Iceland as one of their new small-ship cruising destinations in 2018. The seven-day Iceland itinerary features some of the nation’s beautiful and exclusive locations, authentic Icelandic delicacies, and informative excursions that will infuse the culture and history of the nation with entertaining tours and activities.

Passengers traveling with Beyond Cruises to Iceland will experience: Iceland’s most famous, mineral-rich geothermal spa, the Blue Lagoon; a walk through the geological fault that separates the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates as they explore the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Thingveller National Park; and a descent into Langjökull glacier, as hundreds of feet of tunnels and caverns have been meticulously carved into the ice and are illuminated by LED lights which give the ice an ethereal glow.

While exploring Iceland itself is the highlight of the cruise, sailing with Beyond Cruises provides guests with the opportunity to do so through a more intimate, private mega-yacht experience. The small-ship cruising advantage for shore excursion and tours is the ability of the vessel to dock close to the destination, visiting hidden harbors and little-known ports far from the tourist radar and not accessible by large cruise ships.

The vessel, the M/S Panorama- a three-masted motorsailer- accommodates a maximum of 48 passengers in 24 cabins where guests are well looked after by Beyond Cruises staff, well known for its one-to-two, crew-to-passenger ratio. Beyond Cruises’ small-ship setting fosters socializing with an on-board community of like-minded people, whether it’s at the deck bar or through the open-seated dining set up.

“The launch of the Beyond Cruises Iceland program is a natural outgrowth of Group IST’s expertise in combining people-to-people experiential travel and the special delights of small-ship cruising,” said Michael Goren, President & CEO, Group IST. “The natural wonders of Iceland are perfect for the small-ship experience.”
