Wild Iceland Escape

Discover why Iceland is known as the “land of fire and ice” on a voyage to the remote fjords and volcanic isles along the country's western coast. Venture across the stark landscape of an island formed by volcanic eruptions where the ground is still warmed by geothermal activity. Set out by Zodiac to view towering cliffs teeming with nesting seabirds and snow-capped plateaus rising into the clouds. Explore the legacy of Viking explorers and intrepid fishermen as you visit historic villages and navigate dramatic shorelines from the wild Westfjords region to the volcanic Westman Islands.

  • Explore Iceland's pristine fjords, fascinating tundra, and dramatic waterfalls, accompanied by a dedicated team of naturalists

  • Encounter evidence of volcanic activity as we soak in geothermal hot springs, hike over cooled lava fields, and view Iceland's newest isle, Surtsey

  • Discover the rich biodiversity of the remote Westfjords, spotting nesting puffins and gannets on the Látrabjarg cliffs and watching for humpback and minke whales in the surrounding waters

  • Choose your own adventure on one of three optional trip extensions, from a hiking excursion across Iceland's untamed highlands to an exploration of the Snaefellsnes peninsula's epic natural wonders
