Iceland Walking & Hiking
Natural Wonders of the Southern Coast

Warmed by the Gulf Stream just south of the Arctic Circle, the natural world's most astounding wonders share the limelight—or midnight sun. Iceland is brimming with brilliant colors, striking contrasts, crisp air and incredible energy. Of course Viking sagas of mythic proportions emerged here. Your own epic may also materialize as you trek across ice, sand, water and lava. A vacation doesn't get any more wonder-full.

Exploration at the Edge of the Arctic Circle

In the ancient stomping ground of the Vikings, you'll zip around icebergs in Zodiac boats, trek on lava beds and journey by "super jeep" near an active volcano. You'll gaze at geysers and hike to a seabird sanctuary. Soak in geothermal pools near frigid waterfalls. Inhale some of the cleanest air on the planet... And that's just the tip of the iceberg! Come discover Iceland at its beautiful, rugged and mythical best.

Norway welcomes you with friendly people, beautiful scenery and a gloriously unique perspective. After vigorous hikes past waterfalls, through pristine pine forests, colorful villages and serene valleys dotted with wildflowers, be humbled by Mother Nature's majesty as your ferry navigates through Europe's narrowest fjord and a World Heritage site—this is quintessential Norway!
