The land of ‘fire and ice’ is one of the most beautiful and geologically striking countries in the world. Its culture and people are unique. For several hundred years, after Norsemen or ‘Vikings’ settled on the island, it was untouched by other languages, cultures and customs yet there is much speculation as to who else may have reached here. Looking on the dark volcanic landscape and glacial lakes, it is easy to see why its people believed in magic and were swept up with myths and ‘sagas’. Iceland also has some brilliant contemporary artists. Our guides are energetic and informal hosts and there are boundless opportunities for outdoor adventure both in the magic of winter or under the midnight sun.
