Exploring Iceland

July 28-Aug. 8, 2018

Discover Iceland’s remarkable natural history and rich cultural heritage on this 11-day small group tour that traverses an astonishing land.  Begin your journey in Borgarnes’ scenic environs, touring the beautiful Snaefellsnes Peninsula with its lava field, fishing villages, bizarre rock formations, and nesting cliff birds.  Enjoy three nights in the region’s charming capital, Akureyri.  Call on a farm featuring famed Icelandic horses.  View one of the world’s natural wonders, Lake Myvatn, and its bubbling mud flats, lava fields, and lunar-like volcanic craters; and stop at Godafoss, “waterfall of the gods.”  Encounter Glacial River Canyon National Park and Dettifoss, Iceland’s “Niagara.”  Embark on a bird-watching cruise to Puffin Island where, based on seasonality, you may see thousands of seabirds.  Visit fascinating Thingvellir National Park; Seljalandfoss, Iceland’s most visited waterfall; Skogafoss waterfall with its rainbows; and the Skogar Folk Museum.  Conclude your journey with two nights in Iceland’s sophisticated capital, Reykjavik.
