Befriend storytellers, explorers, artists, craftsmen, chefs, and equestrian guides. Explore volcanic and glacial landscapes on foot and horseback as our guide threads together your journey with Iceland's unique history, language, and folklore.
July 7-15, 2018 - or on request.
Gather wild herbs with our chef who connects you with local hunters, anglers, and farmers to prepare sumptuous field-to-table meals. Collaborate with artists who share their craft to commemorate your Iceland experience in your own way. Discover with Iceland's Photographer of the Year how to capture the moments you experience to bring them back home.
You'll spend nights in a 19th century wooden house on a remote, roadless island time forgot. Head out on horseback across the Arctic Ocean's black-sand shores to secret meadows of wildflowers. You'll ford rivers to reach a secluded fjord-side lodge in a spectacular setting. Wake up to a view of snowy mountains across a bay and collect driftwood that's washed ashore from distant lands to transform into your own creation. Don't tour Iceland, live it!
