BROWSE TOURS       HOW IT WORKS       OUR STORY

Trolls. So much green. Am I eating whale? Strongmen. Reykjavik. Steam. This feels like Mars. Horses. Crampons. Waterfalls. Northern lights. Glaciers. Bluest water I’ve ever seen. Inhale. How do you pronounce that? Dried fish sandwich. Puffin birds.  

This is Iceland.

Trolls. So much green. Am I eating whale? Strongmen. Reykjavik. Steam. This feels like Mars. Horses. Crampons. Waterfalls. Northern lights. Glaciers. Bluest water I’ve ever seen. Inhale. How do you pronounce that? Dried fish sandwich. Puffin birds.  

This is Iceland.

Anyone can go to Iceland. You’re going to experience it.


Welcome to a land so singular and environmentally diverse, you might as well be on a different planet.  Explore stunning fjords and breathtaking waterfalls, then travel to a red mountain where mud boils and steam flows out of the earth. See lava formations, which some believe are trolls exposed to the sun, then walk along the gap separating two tectonic plates. And all the while, you’ll be constantly questioning how your surroundings can possibly be real.

Experience the best of Iceland

The food

Taste foods you recognize—like cod, potatoes, and lamb—in new-to-you preparations. Try pickled fishes of all kinds, lamb hotdogs, and skyr, a creamy, yogurt-like soft cheese that Icelanders eat at any time of day.​

The people

Ask an Icelander for directions, and you’re likely to get their life story, 15 specific ideas for how to spend your time while you’re visiting, and a new friend to call your own. Icelanders aren’t just nice—they’re perhaps the nicest people in the world.

The culture

Isolation and extreme weather conditions have created a culture of resilience and camaraderie among Icelanders. Their shared sense of tradition, coupled with a modern sensibility, combine to form a uniquely progressive society.

“I loved my tour of Iceland. The scenery is like nothing I have ever seen. I learnedso much about geothermal energy, volcanoes, geysers, earthquakes, and more. Our tour guide was so informative about traditional Icelandic ways of life, so we learned so much more than we expected. We fell in love with this country, its people, its customs, and its way of life. Truly a trip of a lifetime!”
