What to expect?

Iceland is a country like no other, almost its own little planet with exceptional landscapes. Iceland is home to some of the world's finest waterfalls, erupting geysers, stunning fjords, magical lagoons, active volcanoes, majestic glaciers, powerful lava flows and tranquil lakes with rare-breeding birdlife.

You will discover some of the most remote parts of the country and visit many well-known highlights as well. Our Grand Tour of Iceland features all the best the country has to offer. Each day combines touring by bus, going for light walks, having soft adventures and experiencing Icelandic culture and history. We stay in simple and charming guesthouses, farms and tourist-class hotels, many of them set in the most stunning locations.
