Iceland - the land of fire and ice



Iceland is nature's playground. It is a diverse ecosystem that is easy to explore whether you have 1 day or 14 days. Iceland sits halfway between America and Europe. Iceland it is full of natural wonders from mountains, glaciers, hot springs, volcanoes, geysers, islands, northern lights and so much more!

Dramatic is the best word to describe the landscape of Iceland. Climb the lip of a dormant volcanic crater, wander among the pillars of cooled lava formations, put crampons on and climb a glacier, soak in a geothermal heated pool, experience and connect with nature at its finest. The beauty of Iceland, like an iceberg, is profoundly deep.

If you are an outdoor enthusiast, a nature lover or someone who appreciates the beauty of this world, Iceland is waiting for you to discover it.

There is so much to see and experience, and Safe Travels!
