Short Description

Icelandic folklore maintains there are clans of elves and trolls living in the country’s extraordinary hills, rocky outcrops, and lava fields. Will you meet these “Huldufólk” or “Hidden People” said to dislike churches, daylight, and electricity? Hard to say. But here’s what you will see on this breathtaking tour of Iceland—active volcanoes, roaring waterfalls, jagged glaciers, floating icebergs, black-sand beaches, and brilliant-blue geothermal springs. Unique, local experiences await in the “Land of Fire and Ice,” including tasting piping hot bread baked by the heat from the hot springs, sipping Geysir schnapps served at freezing point, and standing in awe before the spectacular Lake Jökulsárlón, home to Europe’s largest glacier and the site of some of the most dramatic scenes from the James Bond movie Die Another Day. The gargantuan sights in the land of the elves will surely leave you stirred, not shaken.

Company Reviews


Our guide (Billy Guiliana) was highly energetic, positive, and knowledgeable. His English is excellent and his communication of the itinerary was always clear and concise.

Not to leave our driver out of the praise, his name was Daniel (I’m sorry, but I don’t recall his last name). Daniel’s mastery of that huge bus on narrow, city streets was impressive.

Klay was always on top of our itinerary. He was professional, funny, helpful, and patient. He provided us with a fabulous experience!

A competent overview.

A quick & easy taste of the country. Too little time to do much outside of the tour & excursions, but a nice intro to your future adventure.

Lisbom to Madrid....A trip for the memory book!

While the sites are usually great...information about them can be read. It is the people who truly make the experience memorable. Our tour guide(s) were personable and informative..and the other guests were friendly and fun to be with.

My one and only .... GLOBUS

I have used Globus for all of my travel. They have the best itineraries. The most recent trip to Morocco was wonderful. I saw all the "doors" and "tile floors" I wanted. The leather items were perfect. I came home with a small Camel Leather Poof. Just the right size and price. The food for the entire trip was superb! The tour guides are always local and well informed and the coach driver's know how to drive in difficult situations! Hotels are always central and walking to shops and eateries is easy. As for price, the shoulder season trips have been good. (March) I always let them book my air and then I have a transfer to the hotel. This trip to Morocco had "two" lay overs; a long trip, but I couldn't find any better on my own. Lots of companies out there, but Globus has always delivered! Why Change? I'm already booked for my next trip on AVALON; a river cruise in Portugal.
