At a Glance

Iceland’s location over a hot spot on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge has given this island nation spectacular volcanic landscapes, from glacier-capped mountains to steaming geyser fields and sheer-walled canyons. A distinctive Icelandic culture thrives here, from farms raising local breeds of horses to towns heated entirely by geothermal energy. Explore this remarkable country by land and sea, including three nights aboard an expedition ship that can access scenic terrain along Iceland’s rugged coastline. Keep an eye out for wildlife — many different types of whale species spend September along the shores of Northern Iceland.
