Journey to the Centre of the Earth
A journey to Snæfellsnes Peninsula and the northern capital, Akureyri, exploring the cultural heritage and spectacular landscape full of waterfalls, mountains and lava fields
The volcanic eruptions of 2010 may have brought air travel to a grinding halt but it demonstrated the awesome power of Mother Nature and renewed our interest in the way our world works. Our Iceland tours get up close and personal with this untamed land of fire, ice and dancing lights.
This relatively small and vastly unpopulated land is perfect for intrepid travellers searching for a unique experience. The wide range of Icelandic highlights on offer include fjords, waterfalls, lakes, rock formations and lava fields. Keen photographers will be in their element!
Iceland may conjure up visions of glittering white landscapes but this is actually a country of many colours. Expect to marvel at cobalt blue and jade green icebergs, volcanic ash beaches, black lava, red sulphur and green valleys. There are also pretty little coastal villages, spectacular shorelines and hot spring areas. Most memorable is the Blue Lagoon which you can visit on our Ice & Lights Iceland tour. You can bathe in warm waters while surrounded by soft snow and gleaming ice – a truly surreal treat for the senses.
The ultimate, literal highlight of an Icelandic adventure is the Northern Lights. With its ecologically friendly environment and lack of atmospheric pollution, Iceland is the perfect vantage point to view the aurora borealis – we’ll help you chase the lights but there are no guarantees with nature!
With mild summers and cold winters, Iceland is beautiful all year round. If you’re chasing the breathtaking Northern Lights, then you’re in luck! Our Iceland trips take place in January, February, March and November which are the ideal months to experience this natural wonder.
With over 40 years of experience, creating some of the most awe-inspiring holidays, your next Iceland holiday will be one to remember. Whether you’re dreaming of travelling solo, as a couple or with a group of friends, our Iceland escorted tours will open your eyes to some of the most beautiful wonders of the world. Get in touch with our friendly and experienced team today and embark on your next holiday with Jules Verne.
