Iceland has the power to challenge and transform. Hikes past steaming fissures and lava fields. Crashing waterfalls. Soaks in milky geothermal springs. Whale-spotting with your family off the coast of Húsavík. New places. New adventures. Let Iceland's vast horizons broaden your own.
- Visit colorful Siglufjördur, a remote fishing village 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
- Whale-watch during an unforgettable excursion off the coast of Húsavík, Europe's whale-watching capital
- Bask in the light of the midnight sun as you and your family marvel at one of the most magical natural spectacles on Earth
Days 1-2 Board a scenic charter flight to the cosmopolitan city of Akureyri | Origins of Iceland's fire and ice are evident in its deep fjords and volcanic peaks | Journey along Iceland's longest fjord past rolling green meadows and an impressive mountain backdrop | Take a short boat cruise to Hrisey Island, a bird-watcher's paradise, and hike through its picturesque fishing village enjoying 360-degree views of the mainland's magnificent mountain landscape | Find yourself a mere 25 miles from the Arctic Circle after climbing a trail on the flanks of Illvidrishnjúkur, and take in the vistas of nearby mountains | Soak in an outdoor hot tub in quaint Siglufjördur | Enjoy a tasting at a local brewery while the kids are whisked away for an adventure of their own.
Days 3-4 Meet a Backroads' longtime local friend who keeps the Icelandic spirit alive with lively tales of fishing the North Atlantic | On foot, explore the Tröllaskagi or "Troll Peninsula," a remarkable area replete with mountains, lakes and glaciers | Visit the famous Godafoss waterfall | The nutrient-rich waters near Húsavík are an ideal habitat for whales—with luck, we'll spot a cetacean or two on our whale-watching excursion | Hike to the thundering falls of the mighty Dettifoss | Soak up the serenity of our hotel's peaceful lakeside location.
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 | Kids are off to ride Icelandic pony-like horses | Explore the shores of Lake Mývatn at Höfdi Nature Park.
