Take an unforgettable adventure through the serene Arctic with Quark, then touch down in the bustling Icelandic capital (via Akureyri) and let the adventure continue in the world’s uppermost reaches. From the vast, deserted canvas of ice and snow comes a stop in a vibrant European capital, where a captivating mix of local and cosmopolitan awaits. Reykjavik is truly unique — offering a small-town vibe while still going big on food, culture and entertainment.
Iceland’s varied cuisine is enjoying a true renaissance, with local chefs reviving the national cuisine to delicious new heights. Its longstanding tradition of seafood can be sampled in dishes such as cured salmon or the traditional putrefied shark — hákarl — or the island’s love of all things dairy, from thick, creamy skyr to local cheeses. Throw in tasty Nordic bakeries and Michelin-starred meals, too, and Reykjavik is rightly marked as one of Europe’s prime foodie hotspots.
