A modern Viking culture evolves on an island of fire and ice.
Explore Home At First’s ICELAND — Land of Fire & Ice
Iceland surprises you with a great variety of landscapes and moonscapes. Although much of Iceland is green and growing, there remain great glaciated regions including Vatnajökull National Park, where Europe’s largest glacier below the Arctic Circle covers active volcanoes that reach more than a mile above sea level. Dozens of glacier tongues descend to Iceland’s south coast to deposit icy meltwater into the North Atlantic.
• THE 7-DAY ITINERARY: a jam-packed road trip around the perimeter of Iceland on the famous Ring Road, starting at the capital city of Reykjavik and ending at Keflavik International Airport south of the capital. This trip is loaded with scenery: amazing waterfalls, otherworldly geothermal regions, wild, nearly uninhabited coastlines and vacant interiors, and dozens of glacial tongues descending from volcanoes (several active!) almost to the ocean. Expect 2 nights in Reykjavik, and 1- & 2-night stops in 3 or 4 other points along the way. The 7-day itinerary is ideal for visitors with a week to explore Home At First‘s Iceland, and is readily combinable as a stop en route to/from Britain, Scandinavia, or the Continent. This trip can only be done independently by rental car. Driving days are typically 4.5 to 8 hours in length.
