Our trip to the south of Iceland will take us through dramatic volcanic scenery, and between two tectonic plates, the North American and Eurasian. We will have a few picturesque stops before we take an early afternoon ferry ride over to the Vestman Islands. The sailing is short (about 40 min) and very scenic as we sail into the port at Heimaey.
