When time is limited, this tour will bring you to the kingdom of Eyjafjallajokull, give you a moment at Gullfoss and introduce you to the local culture.
The steam is rising up from the ground all around you and you can feel a low rumble from the earth through your feet. Soon the rumble will grow and build up until it culminates in a hydrothermal expulsion with steaming hot water shooting up towards the sky. You‘ll be left wondering about the energy hidden beneath your feet, even wondering how Icelanders can live on this island which has fire raging just below the surface.
Summer and winter, you‘ll be greeted by extremely hospitable Icelanders eager to connect with you and show you their version of their homeland. You‘ll see farms, see how tomatoes are cultivated consistently throughout the year harvesting the energy that is natural to our feisty little island. You will travel through the settings of Icelandic sagas, through the locations of ancient Viking battles. The most famous saga of them all is the one of Njall, a saga of battles and power struggle, of deceit and passionate love. In the wintertime, we will do our absolute best to get a good viewing of the northern lights!
From the pearls of the Golden Circle, Gullfoss and Geysir, to the magic of the south coast, Eyjafjallajokull and waterfalls Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss, you will get your share of what has made Iceland so intriguing to so many with a touch of our secrets along the way. This is the perfect trip to take when time is limited. But you must be aware that there is a danger of discovering a part of yourself that you can never find again without re-visiting our precious little island. But not to worry, we‘ll be just as welcoming when you come back and excited to show you even more of what is to be experienced and discovered.
To quote John Muir, „Take a course in good water and air; and in the eternal youth of Nature you may renew your own. Go quietly, alone; no harm will befall you“.
