Smaller in size than Pennsylvania, Iceland packs a lot into a little. A dynamic and ever-changing landscape — volcanoes and glaciers reshape the topography a little each day — stippled with geysers, waterfalls, cobalt-blue lagoons, and black-sand beaches, this small country at the top of the world often feels like its own planet. And yet it remains an attractive destination, enchanting visitors with its colorful landscape and equally colorful inhabitants, unique history, funky capital, and bottomless charm.

Our adventure begins in Reykjavík, the world’s most northerly capital, with a privately guided tour that will introduce you to its museums, galleries, historic sites, and unique architecture. Next, get a closer appreciation for the volcanic forces that shape Iceland by descending 400 feet into the heart of Thrihnukagigur, an extinct volcano. En route to Husafell, explore the majestic landscapes of the Snaefellsnes Peninsula, a land of lava fields, black-sand beaches, and mossy hills shaped by centuries of glaciation. Later, an in-depth tour of Langjökull will bring you face-to-face with one of Iceland’s largest glaciers via specially designed vehicles and tunnels carved into the ice. Reward yourself with a relaxing soak at the Secret Lagoon after a full day spent exploring the natural treasures of the fabled Golden Circle — including the stunning Gullfoss waterfall, Geysir, and historic Þingvellir National Park — before encountering Landmannalaugar, a picturesque fantasyland of hot springs and glacial valleys on a full-day Super Jeep tour. Finally, slip into the impossibly blue waters of the soothing Blue Lagoon near Keflavík before bidding Iceland adieu (until next time, that is.) ... Show More »
