Iceland’s Geography School Tour

 
 

Reykjavík is the natural starting point for any visit to Iceland and its amazing landscape. The island is a country of extreme contrasts and endless possibilities, located on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge where both the North American and Eurasian plates are pulling apart. The Tour will allow you discover Iceland’s surreal environment with waterfalls, geysers, volcanoes, black sand beaches and steaming lava fields. There is nowhere on earth quite like Iceland.

We offer 3 or 5 night packages to Iceland. Speak to one of our representatives to help you plan the perfect trip.
