Description

 

“It was a total immersion in things Icelandic.”

 

At a time when the sun barely sets, join Tufts travelers for a week-long discovery of the wonders of Iceland. Beginning with the dynamic city of Reykjavik, we’ll explore in all four directions. Visit small towns, remote settlements, and amazing natural landscapes. Witness the dynamic forces that shape this island and all of its geological features – including mineral-rich lagoons and hot springs, cascading waterfalls and glacial rivers, and moss-covered lava fields and infamous volcanoes. Savor the bounty of excellent menu offerings that include everything from the morning’s catch to traditional Icelandic highland lamb. From Akureyri, known as the capital of northern Iceland, to the black volcanic beaches at Vik, opportunity abounds to take in these ancient lands.
