Exploring Iceland

OCT. 20-30, 2020
Borgarbyggo, Siglufjordur, Lake Myvatn, Selfoss, Reykjavik

Discover Iceland’s remarkable natural history and rich cultural heritage on this 11-day small group tour that traverses an astonishing land.  Encounter the Snaefellsnes Peninsula’s stupendous scenery – its vast lava field, fishing villages, bizarre rock formations, and nesting cliff birds. Call on a farm featuring famed Icelandic horses en route to the charming northern capital, Akureyri. Witness one of the world’s natural wonders, Lake Myvatn, with its mud flats, lava fields, and lunar-like volcanic craters.  Experience the incredible Glacial River Canyon National Park, jaw-dropping Dettifoss – Iceland’s “Niagara” – and massive Asbyrgi canyon. Head to the picturesque fishing and whale-watching village of Husavik for an afternoon whale-watching excursion (weather permitting).  Marvel at Godafoss, “waterfall of the gods.” Visit fascinating Thingvellir National Park, site of a historic parliament, and picturesque Seljalandfoss and Skogafoss waterfalls. Tour the Skogar Folk Museum and view Hellisheidi Power Plant’s geothermal exhibit. Conclude your journey with two nights in Iceland’s sophisticated capital, Reykjavik.
