EYOS Expeditions, the world leader in private yacht charters, announces their latest per cabin charter expedition July 3-10, 2021, sailing around Iceland’s wild northwest coast. (Additional dates are available on request.) The scheduled departure will take place on the 154-foot, seven-cabin expedition yacht Hanse Explorer, offering the exclusivity of a private yacht experience but with the convenience of individual cabins for sale.

Following the yacht’s departure from Reykjavik, six days will be spent exploring Iceland’s towering sea cliffs, staggering peninsulas, majestic fjords, and wild rivers. EYOS guides will be onboard to provide interpretation and insight along the way. Using the yacht’s nimble zodiacs and kayaks, guests will access remote landings, anchor in deep canyons and search for wildlife, including arctic foxes and puffins. There will be an opportunity to hike trails in the Snæfellsjökull National Park, dominated by its glaciated volcano where Jules Verne’s classic novel “Journey to the Centre of the Earth” began, as well as trek along beaches, mysterious sea caves, untouched lava fields and green grasslands. Guests will visit Breiðafjörður , a land and seascape dotted with about 3,000 islands, before heading above the Arctic Circle to land of the midnight sun on a visit to Grimsey.

“I have been visiting Iceland for more than 25 years. This itinerary has distilled the best of the best into seven days, focusing on arguably the most beautiful and wild part of the country, while still having opportunities to visit better known sites near civilization, including the amazing volcanic eruption that started this year and makes visiting Iceland particularly exciting,” said Tim Soper, Co-Founder.

Ben Lyons, CEO, added, “This is a unique opportunity to experience a private superyacht without having to charter the entire vessel. Traveling with a maximum of 12 guests allows for a very personalized and intime experience, whether onboard at dinner or on shore watching puffins. Time and time again, we find that the sheer excitement of an expedition always creates a natural camaraderie onboard. After more than a year of COVID, escaping to the wilds of Iceland is a wonderful way to celebrate the ability to travel and explore again.”

Hanse Explorer can accommodate up to 12 guests. Per person prices are 16,000 (approximately $19,400) per person/week. Hanse Explorer will also be available for private charters for 155,000 per week (approximately $187,939) plus expenses throughout the summer. Guests are required to be vaccinated to join this departure.
