Southern Iceland/Ring Road: No trip to Iceland is complete without an adventure along the famed Ring Road. The dramatic scenery is as varied and stark as it is beautiful and full of surprises. We’ll stop at waterfalls, explore the Sólheimasandur plane crash and enjoy black sand beaches. And bring your swimsuit as we hunt for secret geothermal swimming pools!
Into the Glacier: On this tour our local guide will take us inside Langjökull, the second largest glacier in Iceland.
