Immerse yourself in Iceland's unmatched natural splendors as well as the innovative art and rich, ancient traditions that were inspired by them.

Poised on the crest of the mid-Atlantic ridge, Iceland is literally a land of fire and ice–a pure landscape of volcanoes, glaciers, and spectacular waterfalls that is also home to a dynamic culture of contemporary art, music, and literature. On this six-night tour in September, when temperatures are mild and the aurora borealis is at its most active, explore Iceland's unparalleled natural splendors and its exciting contemporary art scene.
