Land Of Ice & Fire IC

Visiting: Iceland
Trip Duration 10 Days
 

Best of Iceland around the Ring Road

Iceland is a land of elves and Viking mythology and it's packed with weird and wonderful places that capture your imagination and leave you wanting to return over and over again. On this comprehensive best of Iceland round trip we'll explore the main sites as well as the lesser visited, but equally impressive attractions. There's no better introduction to this fascinating country's spectacular and diverse landscapes as we discover raging waterfalls, remote villages, black sand beaches and glistening glaciers. We walk in the wild Skaftafell region, drift between icebergs on Jokulsarlon Lagoon and take in the unique volcanic landscape of Lake Myvatn. We also visit the capital of Reykjavik and explore the famous 'Golden Circle.' Iceland is a truly unique destination and unlike anywhere else in Europe. This is the best place to see such amazing coastal and volcanic scenery without needing to take a long haul flight or drive over long distances; you'll see a huge amount all within close proximity to each other.

Why Book this trip
Iceland is a destination where you can still get up close to its many and varied natural attractions. You can touch the point where tectonic plates meet, feel the spray of roaring waterfalls against your face and stare in awe as icebergs float pass you. The people are friendly and have a wonderful sense of humour. They'll tell you tales of elves and Norse gods, which have helped to shape this magical island.
