Iceland Trips

Why Iceland?

Everywhere you turn in Iceland, you’ll be faced with sheer volcanic forces that have shaped one of the most unique landscapes on earth.

Imagine black deserts threaded with glacial rivers, amid volcanic peaks in all directions. Mysterious ravines offering some truly remote hiking routes, vast tundra scattered with wildflowers, and the Valley of Thor shrouded in a fine mist. Iceland’s terrain is as dramatic as it is beautiful, shaped by the constant shifting of tectonic plates.

If it’s off-grid hiking you’re after, summer is the best time to visit. The landscape comes to life with days of endless sunshine, bringing flora and fauna to the valleys. Winter offers quite a different kind of adventure. You can expect glacier hiking, snowmobiling across the icy outback and bathing in an outdoor hot tub beneath the Northern Lights (weather permitting, of course).

Whether you’re seeking a magical winter or a summer adventure, travel to Iceland and you’re in for an outdoors experience like no other.
