Trip Description
Image of Iceland


Escape to exotic Iceland. From steamy hot springs to world-class spas, magnificent malls to art museums, this unique land is the perfect place to relax, recharge, and explore. Travelers will explore the culture of Reykjavik, the Great Geyser, glaciers, magnificent waterfalls, and icecaps. But perhaps the greatest draw is the Aurora Borealis – the Northern Lights. This is the best time of year to view them as it must be totally dark to get the best effect – and this is a country where the sun never fully sets in the summer! On the evening of our arrival day, we’ll head out to try and see the real thing (weather permitting). If the weather doesn’t cooperate with us we’ll try again the next night . . and the next.

The combination of remarkable natural features with art museums, theaters, an opera house, and a symphony orchestra offers a rejuvenating experience for all tastes and interests.
