This program is the best all-around introduction to Iceland possible! A little bit of all aspects were included. Volcanoes, glaciers, whales - all of it! Harpa was an amazing leader, always present and approachable, while being very knowledgeable and fun.


A unique country and program.


A great outdoor program that has a lot of variety. A very friendly country to visit.


I highly recommend this program as a way to experience first-hand the varied, geology, geography, climate, and culture of Iceland.


Iceland presents with stark and rugged beauty. The Road Scholar Icelandic tour was a delight because of experienced Icelandic group leaders and the fascinating sites that we visited, which were chosen to give both breadth and depth to the geography, culture and history of Iceland. I recommend this tour without reservation for those who can do some minimum walking and hiking (about 2 miles a day) and who are open learning about a unique place on this planet.


This trip was one of the most enjoyable trips I've taken. Everyday was an exciting new adventure. Be sure to bring warm and waterproof clothing, as there is usually a very strong wind and often rain as well. As our group leader told us, "There is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothes."


This program is an excellent overview of Iceland. There were places we went that I would like to revisit in more depth in the future. The pace was good (and I don't exercise a lot).


An extremely though introduction to Iceland and all it has to offer.


This was the best trip! If you ever wanted to go to Iceland, this is the one. We got a great overview of a wonderful country and her proud people from a sea perspective and from daily land tours in each area of the country. Diverse and breathtaking geography makes it easy to see why it is a perfect movie backdrop.


This was one of the most rewarding tours I have experienced. It included a thoughtful balance of activities that keep your mind, body and spirit engaged.


What a fabulous way to learn about the whole of Iceland. It was a great adventure from start to finish. Looking forward to my next Road Scholar experience.


If you want to see the real Iceland, don't just see the Capital. Take this trip and get out and learn about the real people and their lives.


An excellent and comprehensive tour of Iceland, with plenty of variety. An opportunity to learn much about the history and culture of the island.


Iceland has so much to see and experience: Glaciers, Waterfalls, Geysers, Volcanos, Fjords, Small Quaint Seaport Fishing Villages, Nearby Small Islands, Natural Hot Spring Pools. Taking the Cruise Ship around Iceland provides a convenient and efficient way to truly experience Iceland in all it's natural beauty.


Traveling by ship was a excellent way to see Iceland.


Well organized in depth experience for those who wish to see more of Iceland and travel by Ship.


Lovely trip. Iceland is a beautiful country and this trip allows you to see so much of it. We had some challenging weather so not totally sure I'd go in May again, but otherwise everything was great. Inga, our tour manager, was fabulous, highly recommend her. My fellow tripmates were delightful and I hope to stay in touch with many. As a single traveler, I was welcomed by all.


We loved this trip. We saw and did soooo much. The group leader, the Pro Cruises staff, and the ship's crew were all very good. Thanks for a wonderful trip.


This was a great program that allowed us to dig below the surface of the ads. I would love to go back during the dark days. The Icelandic people are wonderful and are willing to share honest experiences with ALL who ask.
