アークレイリ

オーディンとトールの敗北

クルーズ客船から下船して、アークレイリで休暇を楽しむなら、ミーヴァトン湖への寄港地観光がおすすめです。 途中立ち寄るエイヤフィヨルズルでは、港の美しい景色を眺めることができます。
最初に立ち寄るのはゴーザフォス。ここではスキャゥルファンダフリョゥト川の水が12メートルの高さの滝を作り上げています。 伝説によれば、999年か1000年にアイスランドの統治者がキリスト教をアイスランドの国教に定めた際、北欧神話の神々、オーディン、トール、フレイの偶像をこの水の中に投げ入れたと言われています(それ以前はおそらく、この滝はその神々に奉納されていたのでしょう)。

アークレイリの教会のステンドグラスには、この伝説が描かれています。 アイスランドの手つかずの自然をさらに進むと、明るい緑色の牧草地から、島の奥深くから湧き出る赤色の鉱石まで、信じられないほど多彩な色に出会います。そして、2500年前の噴火で発生した地中の水蒸気によって形成されたスクートゥスタジルというプセウド(疑似)クレーターに着きます。

ここから、溶岩の迷路のような景観を呈しているディムボルギルに行くことができます。特異な溶岩の台地の中央には、先のとがったアーチのポータルが2つある自然の教会キルキャが立っています。内部には祭壇が置かれ、本格的な礼拝所となっています。 最後は、インフェルノとも呼ばれるヴィーティという火口湖を訪れます。これは中心部にあるクラプラ火山の数ある火口のひとつです。

急な道を登っていく気力があれば、温泉を楽しむこともできます。 ここからはアスキャという50キロメートル四方に広がる巨大なカルデラを見ることができます。溶岩の砂漠のようなこの場所は、月の埃のような細かい砂で覆われています。実際、ここではアポロ11号の宇宙飛行士たちが月への着陸に向けてトレーニングを行いました。

アークレイリに戻る前に、興味のある方は10キロメートルほど南にあるサンタクロースのに立ち寄ることもできます。楽しいクリスマスのおもちゃが並ぶショップには、世界最大のアドベントカレンダーが飾られています。

    On leaving the port of Akureyri, a comfortable coach will take you up along the scenic coastal road towards Iceland’s northernmost settlement, the small town of Siglufjörður, which was a boomtown for the herring industry in its mid-20th-century heyday. Continuing via Ólafsjörður, you will then reach Siglufjörður for a delicious light lunch in a harbour-side restaurant. The award-winning “Herring Era Museum” is next for a chance to enjoy an entertaining and energetic demonstration of the ancient art of salting and packing herrings, as delivered by a team of highly dexterous “herring girls” under the watchful eye of the manager. Also on the itinerary is some enjoyable ring dancing to the lively sounds of accordion music, plus an opportunity to sample some traditional rye bread, local herring and a shot of authentic Icelandic schnapps. A short introduction to the history of the herring fishing industry will be followed by some time to explore the museum’s three buildings on your own before heading back to Akureyri and your ship. Please note: limited number of guides in languages other than English. Should a tour guide for your language be unavailable, the tour will be in English only. Most of the sites have ramps for wheelchair users though they cannot visit all parts of the Herring Museum. Guests using a wheelchair are advised that they must be accompanied by a paying helper to provide assistance with getting on and off the coach and that wheelchairs must be collapsible/foldable since the coach has neither a ramp nor a lift.

    Located in the heart of northeast Iceland about 105 kilometres south of the Arctic Circle, Lake Myvatn and its surroundings are among Europe’s greatest natural treasures. You will admire the scenery around this exceptionally shallow lake which was formed by millennia of repeated volcanic eruptions which lend the area its surreal quality characterised by lava landscapes, crater formations and sulphur-streaked mountains. At the Myvatn Nature Baths, opened in 2004, you can literally immerse yourself in the scenery as you take a relaxing dip in the clouds of steam that rise from a fissure deep in the earth’s surface. The warm waters will soothe both your spirit and your skin, in what will be truly unique and reviving experience. On our return to Akureyri we will stop for photos at the spectacular Godafoss cascade, the ‘Waterfall of the Gods’. Please note: guides available in English only. For reasons of hygiene and in line with local customs, it is compulsory to take a shower without swimwear before entering the lagoon. Separate dressing rooms and showers for men and women.

    Leave the pier for a short transfer to Godafoss, “the Waterfalls of the Gods”, which at 12 metres high is one of the most spectacular falls in Iceland.

This is an ideal spot to take photos of the falls and the surrounding scenery. Next stop is the Laufas Folk Museum, originally as manor farm and vicarage and which dates back to 1866. The museum contains period domestic and agricultural tools.

    Iceland has earned itself a rightful name as a prime European location for whale watching and the port of Akureyri is one of the country’s very best spots for sighting marine mammals who come to feed in its year-round ice-free bay. In addition to an abundance of seabirds such as puffins, bay visitors include minke, fin and blue whales as well as playful harbour porpoises and white-beaked dolphins who like to surf alongside boats and other watercraft. But the certain star of this bay-watch show are humpback whales, easily identified by their black and white flippers, lumpy snouts and huge fountain-like blows. Humpbacks are particularly known for their aquatic acrobatics, so watch out for common behaviours such as breaching, fluking, tail and fin slapping, bubble blowing and spyhopping during your exploration of Eyjafjörður, the fjord adjoining Akureyri bay. You’ll return to shore with a new appreciation of these majestic marine dwellers, complete with unforgettable memories to savour on board the ship. Please note: guides available in English only. This tour is not suitable for guests using a wheelchair. Wildlife sightings are likely, but not guaranteed.

    AKU07

    Adventurous, entertaining, exceptional and educational are all adjectives that aptly describe this unforgettable tour, which combines land-based sightseeing with a seaborne opportunity to spot marine mammals in their natural habitat. After leaving the port of Akureyri and crossing lush, sweeping valleys dotted with picturesque farms, you will reach the place known as the “whale-watching capital of Europe”, the coastal town of Húsavík. Apart from minke, killer and humpback whales, you may also sight a large number of other marine mammals and seabirds when they come into the bay to feed. Examples include white-beaked dolphins, who will playfully swim alongside the boats, and puffins. The sea leg of the tour is followed by a delicious lunch served in a local restaurant and a visit to the award-winning whale museum, the Húsavík Whale Centre. The informative exhibits will tell you all you ever wanted to know about the lives these majestic ocean creatures lead in the frosty Icelandic waters. To round off your tour, a stop at the incredibly beautiful “cascade of the gods”, the Goðafoss Waterfalls – sporting a generous 30-metre breadth and a dizzying 12-metre drop – will give you time to take some memorable photos before you return to the port and your ship. Please note: wildlife sightings are likely, but not guaranteed. Limited number of guides in languages other than English. Should a tour guide for your language be unavailable, the tour will be in English only. This tour is not suitable for guests using a wheelchair; the whale watching boats are traditional oak boats and not ideal for wheelchairs users.

    The ‘capital of northern Iceland’, Akureyri is a beautiful town surrounded by majestic mountains and a unique blend of urban, rural and marine life. With a focus on seeing the best natural attractions in the area, we will combine travelling around the lovely landscapes with a trip to the spectacular Godafoss waterfall, a visit to the botanic gardens and a tour of lively Akureyri with its 18.000 inhabitants. We will admire the majestic “Waterfall of the Gods” which is an impressive 12 metre-high cascade and an ideal place to take photos. Driving through the historic district of Akureyri, the Danish influence is clearly visible here, a legacy of the country’s former rule by the Danish Crown. We will cross into the newer area of Akureyri and stop at the Botanical Gardens that hold examples of Iceland’s native flora as well as high latitude and high altitude plants from around the world.

    The theme of childhood runs through this tour, so whether you want to relive your past or introduce younger passengers to some traditional folklore, this excursion to the home of a children’s author and to Santa’s House offers a lovely trip down memory lane! Akureyri is the cultural and commercial centre of northern Iceland; this small city boasts a flourishing art scene and a fascinating past. Iceland’s influence under the Danish Crown is clearly present here, displayed in the architecture and in some of the town’s more unusual cultural artefacts. Our first stop will be the Botanic Gardens with examples of indigenous Icelandic plants as well as high latitude and high altitude flora from around the world. We will then proceed to Nonni’s Museum, the childhood home of the renowned Icelandic writer and Jesuit priest Jon ‘Nonni’ Sveinsson. A children’s author, Sveinsson left Iceland aged just 12 and went on to give 5000 lectures around the world and pen 12 books about a character called ‘Nonni’, translated into 40 languages. Our trip continues the child-friendly theme with a stop at Santa’s House, a Christmas store selling festive items, open year round. We will end the tour with a short visit to Akureyri Church, the symbol of the town. Return to the port by bus or a walk through the town centre. Please note: guides available in English only.

アイスランド

氷河から吹き出す溶岩噴泉
氷河から吹き出す溶岩噴泉

アイスランドの旅は、異次元の世界と出会う旅。 想像をはるかに超える、驚きに満ちた島。それがアイスランドです。
 首都のレイキャビクが、活気溢れる芸術と文化の都であることや、 アイスランドの豊かな大自然を育んでいるのが、その穏やかな気候であることはあまり知られていません。夏の気温は意外と温暖で、冬の空がオーロラ(アイスランド語で「ノルズルリョース「北の光」)に彩られる頃は、思いのほか寒さも感じられません。

煮えたぎる泥の沼、豪快に吹き上げる間欠泉、氷河、そして滝。アイスランドは見どころに溢れています。 ミヴァトン湖畔でゆっくりとバードウォッチングを楽しんだり、世界有数のクジラの観察地であるアイスランド周辺海域でホエールウォッチングツアーに参加されてはいかがでしょう。
氷河を訪れるなら、ヨークルスアゥルロゥンへ。大西洋に流れ込むブレイザメルクル氷河の先端部に形成されているアイスランド最大の氷河湖です。
リラックスした休日には、国内に170ヶ所以上ある地熱温泉へ。中でもレイキャビクからおよそ40キロメートルの距離にある雄大な温泉保養地、「ブルーラグーン」は見逃せない名所です。この広大な露天風呂の湯温は37度〜39度。ミネラルを豊富に含み、治癒効果があるとされています。
