Welcome to Iceland

Iceland possesses one of the most supernatural landscapes on Earth. Its unique geological mysteries and primeval magic ensure that it resembles no other destination. Hot spring geysers and natural steam rise from deep within the earth’s crust and burst through the surface across the island. Our base is Reykjavik, Iceland’s small and captivating capital that possesses a distinctive personality, rooted deep in Iceland’s Viking roots. Here, small and neat corrugated houses sit comfortably alongside futuristic glass buildings against a backdrop of mountains, pure blue lakes and perhaps even the midnight sun.
