Iceland has the power to challenge and transform. Hikes past steaming fissures and lava fields. Crashing waterfalls. Soaks in milky geothermal springs. Whale-spotting off the coast of Húsavík. New places. New family adventures. Let Iceland's vast horizons broaden your own.
- Visit Siglufjördur, one of Iceland's most beautiful villages, set on a narrow fjord that wasn't connected by road until 1940
- Hike through a spectacular landscape of mountains, lakes and glaciers on the Tröllaskagi or Troll Peninsula
- Sail around the impressive coastline of Húsavík, Europe's whale-watching capital, keeping your eyes peeled for dolphins and whales
- Witness the midnight sun, one of the most magical natural spectacles on Earth
Days 1-2 Board a scenic charter flight bound for Akureyri, Capital of the North | Iceland's origins of "fire and ice" are evident in the north's wild topography, punctuated by deep fjords and volcanic peaks | Journey past rolling green meadows that unfurl beneath an impressive mountain backdrop along Eyjafjördur, Iceland's longest fjord | Hrisey Island, a bird-watcher's paradise, is the setting for a hike offering 360-degree views of the mainland | Trek along a stunning alpine path with sweeping views of surrounding peaks and Siglufjördur far below.

Days 5-6 Explore the tumultuous Krafla lava fields | Navigate the smoldering spectrum of colorful paths through Leirhnjúkur | Marvel at the bubbling mud pots and black-and-ocher slopes at the Hverir Volcano vents | Admire incredible views and crater-like depressions formed by ancient lava flows | Hike from the fascinating Grjótagjá Lava Cave | Walk through lava fields to see Hverfjall Volcano's caldera | Explore the shores of Lake Mývatn at Höfdi Nature Park.
