Magical, energising, austere, surreal… Iceland is a unique natural wonderland. A destination like no other place on Earth, where rugged landscapes have been shaped by the forces of lava, fire and ice, resulting in dramatic moonscapes, towering waterfalls, geothermal lakes and magical ice caves—an eclectic collection of awe-inspiring sights in an island just 103,000 km. in size.
In the summer months Iceland undergoes a stark transformation, and as it shakes off the winter’s blanket of snow, the countryside opens up for endless days of exploration. White expanses become flourishing green meadows, frozen waterfalls thaw out to majestic, rushing cascades, and the local wildlife relishes in the warmth of the midnight sun. Whale-watching is at its peak, with humpback whales, minke whales, orcas, fin whales, northern bottlenose whales and the largest of all, blue whales, being a common sight in the icy waters.
An exclusive exploration of Iceland offers an incredible adventure through this mystical country… a fairy-tale discovery that gives you unparalleled access to the highlights with world-renowned expert guides.
