This trip has alternate itineraries available. Please select your preferred option to see itinerary and pricing.
From Oct 19

Most people that visit Iceland go in the summer, but there's a whole other side to this place in the winter months. (It is called "Iceland," after all.) Spend the first five days doing really cool things like hiking glaciers, exploring Þingvellir National Park, reflecting on life under the Northern Lights, visiting horse farms, and warming up in hot springs. Then spend two days in exploring colourful, cool Reykjavík and end off the journey at the famous Blue Lagoon. See another side of this amazing country.
