Iceland & Greenland From Fire to Ice Group Tour

9 Day Tour, from £3799 per person

Although very close in distance, the landscapes and cultures of these two remote islands differ greatly and with easy, direct access between the two, they form a compelling and convenient combination. Witness the spectacular power of nature at sights such as the Gulfoss waterfalls, Geysir hot springs, Mt. Hekla volcano in Iceland together with Greenland's mighty Eqi Glacier which sits 80 metres above the surface of the ocean. Sail through the ice fjords of Ilulissat, visit old settlements and observe life in villages above the Arctic Circle.
