Isolated. Beautiful. Diverse. There are a lot of words to describe the rich nation of Iceland. From bubbling hot springs and snow-capped mountains to red-hot volcanoes and rushing waterfalls, it seems like everything in Iceland is constantly moving and flowing – it’s not called ‘the land of fire and ice” for nothing! 

With land that continues to change, the best way to see Iceland is on a trek or cruise with Aurora Expeditions. Are you a hiking enthusiast or lover of the great outdoors? The challenge of the intense, yet stunning Icelandic landscape would be well suited to your tastes.

Explore the streets of Reykjavik, the world’s most northerly capital, before escaping the urban environment and witnessing Mother Nature at work in the ever-changing Icelandic wilderness. Climb Mount Hekla, an active volcano and tour floating icebergs and glaciers in Fjallsárlón – you’re totally immersed in Iceland’s spectacular backdrop.

Explore the real world.
