Iceland Getaway

When: March 22, 2018 - March 26, 2018 (iCal)

Description

 

“Appreciated how our tour guide took us to beautiful locations somewhat off the typical tourist routes.”

 

With unprecedented interest in this destination, we are continuing to offer this extraordinarily attractive program. Join Tufts travelers for this escape to exotic Iceland, our closest European neighbor. We will stay in the capital city, Reykjavik, to take in the city’s vibrant culture, learn about the region’s Viking heritage, and experience the unbelievable natural landscape, including impressive geysers and glaciers, magnificent waterfalls, and (with luck) the Northern Lights. This unforgettable long weekend tour offers an introductory city tour, a day trip around the Icelandic countryside, and free time to independently explore the city’s museums and opera, or take advantage of optional excursions such as snowmobiling on top of a glacier or horseback riding through lava fields. Join us for this long weekend getaway to the land of fire and ice!
