Iceland holidays 2020 & 2021
Raw, rugged and extreme, the sheer force of nature is the dominant feature on the Icelandic landscape. This is a country shaped by volcanic activity, carved by glaciers and left almost entirely untamed. Our specialists know Iceland well and can build a trip that takes you to all its highlights or help you explore its geology, wildlife or backcountry wilderness in more detail.
We’ll suggest destinations and activities based on your interests and offer options to walk on age-old glaciers, snorkel between diverging tectonic plates, hike into ice caves or learn how to cook on a local farm. Along the way, you can lounge in a natural hot pool, chase the northern lights or marvel at the thundering cascades of water, bubbling mud pools, steaming fumaroles and glittering icebergs that make up Iceland’s otherworldly landscape. Everywhere you go, the drama and extremes of this beguiling destination unfold around you.
