What Makes Me Mighty Fine

  • An escorted, nine day summer tour with numerous short hikes, visiting The Golden Circle, Dettifoss Waterfall, Lake Myvatn and Husavik for a thrilling three hour whale watching expedition
  • Take a boat trip on the beautiful Jokulsarlon glacial lagoon and enjoy a guided tour of Reykjavik
  • See Europe’s largest glacier and climb to the top of a volcano

If you have always dreamed of seeing the spectacular landforms that make Iceland so amazing, this tour promises to deliver. Over thousands of years, this fascinating island in the middle of the North Atlantic has been sculpted and shaped by volcanic activity and glacial action, giving it its nickname ‘The Land of Fire and Ice’. Our Iceland Nature Tours take you on a journey to many of the island’s most incredible natural features. Witness impressive waterfalls such as Gullfoss and Dettifoss, see Europe’s largest glacier, climb a volcano and stare into its crater, bathe in naturally heated pools and spot whales on a whale watching boat trip. As we travel around the country, spectacular scenery unfolds around every turn, from towering mountains and majestic fjords, to idyllic fishing villages and picturesque valleys. No other country can quite compare to Iceland.

During our Iceland Nature Tours you will stay in different accommodation almost every night, making it possible to see even more of the island. There are various short hikes throughout the trip which allow visitors to explore areas on foot without being too strenuous. With overnight stays in the city of Reykjavík before and after the Iceland Nature Tours, there is also a chance to experience the country’s capital.
