It’s a surprising, even astonishing land; one of massive glaciers and rumbling volcanoes, bubbling mud holes and powerful waterfalls; hugely abundant bird life and just 340,000 people; and where the sun never sets for six splendid weeks. It’s also perfect for exploring in a small group, as we discover traveling the breadth of the country and getting an up-close view of this natural “wonderland.”

Setting out from Reykjavik, see Hellisheidi Power Plant’s geothermal exhibit. Traveling through “saga” country, visit the renowned Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss waterfalls. Explore Lake Mývatn’s wondrous environs and embark on a dramatic bird-watching cruise. In Vatnajökull National Park, another natural marvel, admire jaw-dropping Dettifoss, Iceland’s “Niagara.”  Stop at stunning Godafoss, “waterfall of the gods.” At a folk museum, encounter Iceland’s past, then see famed Icelandic horses at a farm. Experience the Snaefellsnes Peninsula’s stupendous scenery. Thingvellir National Park offers fascinating historical insights. Marvel at breathtaking Gullfoss waterfall and the famous Great Geysir. The Icelandic adventure ends with two nights in sophisticated Reykjavik and time for independent exploration. Spend more time discovering Iceland’s colorful capital with a 3-day/2-night post-tour extension.
