Most visitors to Iceland
see the sites along the “Golden Circle,” the name for a roughly 200-mile loop from Reykjavik into central Iceland. The Iceland Hangout
, however, will venture beyond that familiar circuit to the less-visited wild western coast. This part of the country is largely a spectacular, uninhabited nature reserve accessible only by foot and by sea. Guests will board the 148-passenger National Geographic Explorer and hug the coast for close-up views of the immense Látrabjarg cliffs, the westernmost point in Iceland and home to millions of birds—puffins, gannets, and razorbills.
