Iceland is an extraordinary land of volcanoes, glaciers, geysers and waterfalls. Explore this mighty country your way – with an Escorted tour, an Independent tour with accommodation and locally guided day excursions, or a Self-Drive tour with car hire and accommodation. Experience the wonders of nature in the many national parks, see the weird and wonderful lava formations and view many beautiful and powerful waterfalls. Try some activities such as riding a unique and protected Icelandic horse, sampling the local Nordic cuisine, bathing in the waters of the aqua Blue Lagoon, bird watching, whale watching or walking and trekking the mountains and volcanoes. In winter, you can also experience the thrill of searching for the fabled Northern Lights and marvelling at the Winter landscape of snow and ice.

The Snaefellsnes Peninsula is made up of a rugged mountain chain that juts out from the west coast and is capped by the 1,446 metre Snæfellsjökull, a mystical cone-shaped strato volcano. Take a lava tour under the Snæfellsjökull glacier into the Vatnshellir lava tube. The Snaefellsnes National Park offers diverse landscapes with its volcanic craters, lava formations, black and white sandy beaches and high cliffs. Take a ferry from Stykkishólmur to Brjánslækur in the West Fjords via Flatey Island to enjoy a magnificent view of Snæfellsjökull glacier (depending on weather). The bird cliffs of Látrabjarg which are located on Iceland’s westernmost point are known for their variety of Nordic birds such as puffins, razorbills, guillemots, fulmars, cormorants and kittiwakes.
