Iceland is the land of surreal opposites: raging volcanoes and majestic glaciers, hot springs and icy waterfalls. Much of the country is still taking shape, right before the eyes of visitors, as its raw, dramatic landscapes are born from volcanic eruptions and carved out by glaciers. On the other hand, there are parts of Iceland that have hardly changed since the first Viking settlers saw them more than 1,100 years ago. This breathtakingly beautiful island offers both exhilarating adventures amid the moss-covered lava fields, volcanoes and ice fields and the understated sophistication of Reykjavik, the world's northernmost capital city. Traveling in Iceland, you will experience Iceland's most dramatic landscapes and geological wonders. From spectacular thundering waterfalls to boiling mud fields and steaming fissures, visiting here allows for a glimpse into the process of the Earth's formation, like no other place in the world. You'll love this area's pristine beauty, exciting geothermal activity, its wealth of bird and sealife watching opportunities, as well as its Viking legacy and contemporary design.
With the Geysers and Glaciers Icelandic adventure, we'll embark on the voyage of adventure and discovery. We'll experience the astonishing beauty and geological marvels of this surreal countryside which often arouse both reverence and awe. We'll be rewarded with an unforgettable journey into the land of the midnight sun and bright nights of song and dance in the crisp polar air. We'll explore this fascinating country with experienced local guides, who will help us appreciate the endless variations of the Icelandic culture, scenery, geology, history and adventures. At the day's end, we will enjoy the hip and funky Icelandic cities, as well as the delicious Nordic cuisine prepared with the freshest possible naturally grown ingredients and the cutting-edge, designer shopping.
