Home to some of the most striking buildings you'll ever see, Reykjavik is a small city that packs a powerful punch. Take a dip in one of the many geothermal pools to truly relax, or enjoy a refreshing hike in the great outdoors. A visit to the iconic Hallgrímskirkja Church is a must for architecture enthusiasts, though a simple walking tour around the city will see you discovering stunning designs and street art. Don't forget to leave room for the outstanding local cuisine, from fresh seafood to grilled meats.
Hurtigruten Covid-19 safety measures
Prior to boarding, guests may be required to undergo health screening which could involve testing. Embarkation times are staggered to avoid crowding at check in.
Once onboard, guests must be sure to follow any social distancing, face covering and handwashing policies which are in place at the time of sailing.
Should any guests become ill, crew are first-aid trained, and expedition ships to remote locations carry a doctor onboard, while several cabins are reserved as isolation bays if needed.
To ensure their safety onboard, all crew must undergo a health check and have completed a COVID-19 course on hygiene protocol.
Guests will be kept safe on shore excursions thanks to measures which included reduced group sizes and disinfection of transport between uses. By working closely with their land partners, Hurtigruten can allow guests to safely discover ports of call.
Throughout their fleet Hurtigruten will increase the frequency in which they clean and disinfect public areas, high touch points and cabins, with use of saunas, pools and gyms being restricted.
