Saga Pearl II blog - Captains' blogs

19th July, 2018

Another nice day here in Iceland, just a light breeze coming along the fjord as we enter this beautiful scenic region. We embarked our pilot at 8am this morning, then turned the vessel around at the entrance to the harbour and backed the ship in to go port side alongside the cruise berth. The region of the West fjords in Iceland is the least most populated region in Iceland, housing only around 9,600 people in an area around 3,500 square miles. The key to this location is scenery and we are certainly blessed today – no rain for a change!!

The gangway was busy with activity as a lot of guests and crew chose to explore by foot as Isafjordur town is very close by the ship. Tours were going to the Glacier fjords, Hesteyri Boat trip, Fjords Music and flowers, Life and culture in Isafjord and Arctic foxes and Avalanches - all sound interesting!!

We have some nice photos for your viewing pleasure, hope you enjoy them. 6pm and time to leave. We dropped our pilot off and then we are due in Grundafjordur tomorrow – some very excited guests going see some Puffins!
