Great drifting icebergs and bubbling hot springs, spewing geysers and ice-clad volcanoes - Iceland is a country of extremes. The landscape is ethereal - all ice and fire - and the natural phenomena here are unlike anything else in the world. The aurora borealis paints the night sky with dancing beams of light, in one of the greatest shows on earth. In summer, the sun shines a pale pink at midnight. The beaches are black with glittering ice diamonds strewn across the sands.
In this spectacular country near the northern tip of the world, conditions are often harsh, but the Icelandic people have devised novel ways to combat extreme weather conditions. Luxurious soaks in geothermal pools are a most relaxing way to rejuvenate after a long day in icy surrounds. Treks in vast national parks offer magnificent sights of mountains and the massive glaciers that cleave their way into them. Reykjavik, the vibrant capital city, is famed for its Nordic cafes and eclectic live music scene. Come with us to this remote country where Viking history lives on, and we’ll take you on the adventure of a lifetime.
