Iceland is an untamed world of fire and ice, of spouting geysers, blue lagoons, massive glaciers, and multicolored valleys stretching to the sea. We designed this spectacular adventure to immerse you in the full realm of Iceland’s extraordinary landscapes, with fantastic coastal and mountain hikes (and plenty of summit options). The glacier kingdom of Skaftafell National Park, the geologic wonders of Thingvellir National Park, the high valleys and brooding heaths of ancient “saga” country where the rich history of Viking clan warfare played out in the Middle Ages—they’re all on this journey. Along the way, you’ll savor local treats from arctic char to freshly-caught salmon and revel in the surreal scenery of a magical country unlike any other on earth.
