The island of contrasts, where heaven and earth meet and where the sagas of the Vikings were written. A land of glaciers, erupting volcanoes and Geysers, the magnificent Northern Lights and the Midnight Sun. This is an amazing geography field trip!
One of the features of visiting Iceland is the endless and ubiquitous flow of geothermal water streaming from the earth. This hot water is used for open-air swimming pools all around the country, which serve as health spas and as pleasant places to relax and meet people. With all this beauty and geological diversity there is no shortage of opportunities for adventurous pursuits.
Weekends in Iceland are a very special experience and combine magnificent landscapes, fun activities and a surprising array of fine restaurants
