Iceland is an otherworldly island, on the edge of the Arctic Circle, which is a dream of every restless traveler.

It ranks first in the Global Peace Index, it doesn't even have an army, all electricity comes from renewables, and in 2016 it was ranked the 9th most developed country in the world in terms of the United Nations Human Development Index.

It is identified with the island of Thule discovered by Pytheas in the 4th century. Its inhabitants are descendants of the Vikings and their culture was shaped by the Norse heritage they brought with them.

It is an island with a very large number of amazing attractions of all kinds, such as volcanic fields full of lava flows, craters, fumaroles, geysers, effervescent pools, mud lakes, basaltic rocks, waterfalls (about ten thousand), steep coasts, but also glaciers, ice caves, national parks and geoparks, picturesque fishing villages, gorges, iceberg lakes, hot springs, beaches, rocky shores and so much more.

We design a series of programs, each with its own character and adapted to each season (one season we will go to see whales or puffins, another season for hiking in the highlands, another for the northern lights and another to enter an ice cave), programs with different duration to suit everyone's available time,  Different level of difficulty and variety of activities from very mild to quite demanding, programs for families, climbers or adventure lovers and much more.

This program combines a visit to some of Iceland's most important landscapes and attractions, with wildlife watching such as seals, whales and puffins, hot springs, craters and more. And all this combined with small or larger routes that bring us to the hidden corners of every place, even away from the crowds of classic routes.
