On trips to Iceland or Greenland; discover a land of volcanoes and waterfalls, whales and puffins, epic sagas and legends.
For travelers seeking that next unique and pristine destination to experience, an Iceland vacation delivers in spades. The landscapes are wondrous and beguiling. Eerie rocks line the coast, populated by puffin and Arctic tern colonies. Then there are the massive Godafoss and Gullfoss waterfalls, bubbling mud pots, Dimmuborgir lava fields, the Vatnajokul glacier field, native Icelandic plants at Akureyri's Botanical Garden, the Geysir in Haukadalur, and the 100 degree Blue Lagoon with its beneficial silicate minerals.
Culturally, Iceland is home to intriguing contemporary musicians like Sigur Ros and Bjork, and many others. There's unique egg collecting by ropes on the Sprangan cliffs, the Viking heritage to explore at Vikinggaheimar, and riding the Icelandic horse, unique as the only breed with five distinct gaits. The challenge is securing a trip properly in a country that's experiencing enormous growth in tourism.
