Trip Overview

Iceland is closer than you think—and more fun than you’ve ever dreamed. This mid-Atlantic Island is the USA’s closest European neighbor. Raw forces of nature such as glaciers and volcanoes have been shaping the face of Iceland for 20 million years and are still hard at work. Reykjavik, the world’s most northernmost capital, a culturally active city with great culinary treasures and entertainment options. It is small and easy to get around, everybody is friendly and speaks English; with 357,000 inhabitants total in Iceland and a country size of Kentucky.

This short program provides a deep appreciation of what Iceland has to offer, for all tastes and interests. In addition to its breathtaking natural beauty, Iceland is also home to world-class art museums, fabulous cuisine, and flourishing nightlife—with the long winter nights allowing for opportunities to view the spectacular Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights*).

*Please note that the visibility of the Northern Lights is entirely dependent on weather conditions. If we don’t succeed the first night, we will try again the next night, and the next, but there is no guarantee you will see them on this program.
