Peregrine - Highlights of Iceland

Walk among the glaciers, mountains and volcanoes that inspired ancient Norse mythology.

Explore the beautifully rugged landscapes of Iceland’s western peninsulas with soaring coastal cliffs, centuries-old volcanic glaciers and idyllic waterfalls. Enjoy a boat cruise between icebergs at Glacier Lagoon and trek around vast waterside craters. Visit charming fishing villages and walk the colourful streets of Reykjavik.

Why you'll love this trip

  • Witness the breadth of Iceland's incredible natural phenomena – bubbling volcanic solfataras, rootless craters, glacial lakes and geothermal lagoons

  • Stunning no matter when you see it, Gullfoss is more than simply Iceland's largest waterfall. In the sun it’s graced by a dazzling rainbow

  • On your journey from Skaftafell, you'll drive through fields of lava created by Laki's famous volcanic eruption of 1783

  • Enjoy a balance of guided excursions and free time. Do some whale watching, go cycling or bathe in hot springs

  • In the Modrudalur Valley a local baker will ‘treat’ you to a pastry making demonstration. Astarpungur – translated into English this means “love-ball” – is a round donut-like pastry typical to the region

  • In the Hvolsvollur Valley our local friends will give you an insight into how the eruption of Eyafjallajokull volcano in 2010 has affected the lives of the residents in the area

Is this trip right for you?

  • Iceland can be very cold at any time of year, so it's important to bring appropriate clothing. On the rare occasion that your leader has to alter the itinerary due to adverse weather, alternative activities will be offered.

  • Many locations on this itinerary are remote, which means a few long drives of around 5 hours. This is a great opportunity to enjoy the scenery and spend some time getting to know your fellow travellers. Of course you will stop frequently for photo opportunities.

  • As accommodation on this trip is twin-share, single travellers will share a room with another traveller of the same gender. If you’d prefer not to share, a single-room supplement is available at an additional cost. Note that hotels in Iceland often don't have double beds, but rather two single beds that can be pushed together or apart. Also, rooms in Iceland can be small, and at times you may be accommodated a short walk away from the main building.
