Iceland, the land of ice and fire, is the subject of this very special itinerary. Warmed by the Gulf currents and thermal forces rising through the earth’s surface, this island is blessed with a truly amazing geography, featuring lunar landscapes, hot springs and geysers, grand vistas and warm friendly people. This is a land blessed with pristine natural wonders; over 10,000 waterfalls, 15 active volcanoes, numerous glaciers and Europe’s largest icecap. Its rugged coastline is teaming with wildlife, including whales and birds of every description and size. In addition to our Canadian group escort, we will have a professional local guide and the group size will be strictly limited. Members should be aware that porterage is not available in Iceland and they will be responsible for handling their own luggage. Join us as we explore this land, discovering its magnificent scenery and friendly people whose Nordic and Celtic ancestors have called this rugged island home for over 1,100 years. Our past departures of this exceptional itinerary filled very quickly. We urge you to enroll as early as possible to avoid disappointment.

This is a coach tour with relatively long travel days and a busy itinerary. Several of the visited sites involve a good deal of walking, much of it over rough, uneven surfaces. Members should be good walkers to fully enjoy this journey. Hotels in the countryside are clean and comfortable with relatively compact rooms. They reflect the island’s simple lifestyle. Most are low rise (2 stories) and do not have elevators (as porters are not available, members must be prepared to handle their own luggage). Iceland is an expensive country to visit and while we provide exceptional value, members need to allow for the high cost of additional meals and services.
