The Unique Land Of Contrasts – I strongly recommend this tour to all first time visitors to Iceland.
It covers a large area of the country and one sees such a diversity of landscapes. The lovely farm hotels offer a high standard of accommodation and food in beautiful surroundings.
The Northern areas contain some of the most recent volcanic activity containing hot smouldering lava fields, hot bubbling pools, crevasses with steam rising from them, mountains wrenched asunder due to earthquakes, incredible lava formations, and a new thermal Blue Lagoon or Nature Baths for that relaxing dip.
The Eastern coast is cut by dramatic fjords and we see the vast glacier and glacial tongues of Europe’s largest glacier in the south.
The holiday covers many interests such as ornithology, the island is visited by huge flocks of birds arriving from Northern Europe to nest and feed, geology, botany and is a nature lover’s paradise in tranquil surroundings. The clarity of the air makes it fantastic for photography.
Many members become captivated with the tranquillity and beauty of the Icelandic landscape, returning many times with me to visit other areas.
You certainly will experience a peaceful and very personal holiday to Iceland.
