9 Days / 8 Nights

Explore Reykjavik, Iceland's capital, along with wild nature of Gullfoss, Geysir and Thingvellir, combined with Inuit culture, Ilulissat and the Icefjord.

Overview

Our Volcanoes and Ice tour features Iceland, a land of natural wonders: active volcanoes, lava fields, fertile valleys, bubbling mud pools, mountains, waterfalls and glaciers. When the Vikings arrived to South Iceland centuries ago, they first saw Vatnajokull glacier – thus the name Iceland. In contrast we visit the modern Greenlandic town of Ilulissat north of the Polar Circle, surrounded by the Icefjord with calving glaciers and gigantic icebergs.
