Have you been thinking about Iceland but been put off by the expense. Well, we have designed a Best of Iceland tour that will get you to the iconic locations, while keeping costs reasonable!

Iceland is known as the landscape photographer’s paradise, with vast landscapes that are alien in their starkness. Here is a brief description of what you can expect:

  • Quaint villages, churches, and amazing landscapes.
  • Icelandic horses that greet you at the fence line and patiently wait for the images to be captured.
  • South Eastern Iceland’s most beautiful waterfalls cascade from hundreds of feet above you.
  • Icebergs drifting about the glacier lagoon, shifting and crashing as they make their way to sea.
  • Massive cliff walls plunging into the ocean.

If it sounds amazing, it is because it is!
