Exploring Iceland

JUL. 12-22, 2018
Borgarnes, Akureyri, Hella, Reykjavik

Discover the astonishing natural history and rich cultural heritage of vast, unspoiled Iceland.   Start our 11-day tour of Iceland in Borgarnes and visit the Reyholt Cultural Centre. Tour the beautiful Snaefellsnes Peninsula with its small fishing villages, bizarre rock formations, and nesting cliff birds. Enjoy three nights in the region’s charming capital, Akureyri. Travel to one of the world’s natural wonders, Lake Myvatn and its environs of bubbling mud flats, lava fields, and lunar-like volcanic craters, and stop at Godafoss, the “waterfall of the gods.” Visit “Glacial River Canyon” National Park and walk to Dettifoss, Iceland’s “Niagara.” Embark on a bird-watching cruise to Puffin Island where, depending on the season, we may see thousands of seabirds. Visit Thingvellir National Park, known both for its historic import and as the place where the fissure between the geological plates of North American and Europe is most evident.
