Iceland is staggeringly breath-taking and otherworldly. You can’t turn a corner without coming upon active volcanoes, moss-covered lava fields, glaciers, black sand beaches, icy multi-colored mountains, and hundreds of supreme waterfalls.
THE NORTHERN LIGHTS
Located between Europe and North America, Iceland has the best seat in the house to view the spectacular phenomenon that is the Northern Lights or Aurora Borealis. The best season to ensure you will get a glimpse of this stunning sight is considered to be September to mid-April.
The European culture of Icelanders stretches back over a thousand years ago to the Viking Age. Whether you visit a rural fishing village or the hip city of Reykjavik, the energetic cultural blend of old and new will be sure to make your experience memorable. Not to mention their internationally recognized music scene who has brought us artists like Björk and Of Monsters and Men!

You name it- there are plenty of outdoor activities to keep you busy while enjoying the beauty of the country.
