“I still don’t know why, exactly, but I do think people can have a spiritual connection to landscape, and I certainly did in Iceland.”
– Hannah Kent – 2013
Iceland is not merely a destination; it is an adventure and an inspiration unto itself. With panoramic unspoiled landscapes, Northern Lights and mesmerizing vistas, the land of “fire and ice” abounds-with volcanoes, geysers, hot springs and lava fields. Geologically, Iceland is a very young country, still in the midst of its own creation. Shaped by the forces of nature, the barren landscapes, active volcanoes, deep green valleys, glacier-cut fjords, roaring rivers and thermal hot spring pools offer the traveller a never-ending choice of active pursuits.
Great Earth Expeditions offers travellers adventurous eco-touring of the numerous highlights of Iceland’s pure nature and empty expanses, all virtually untouched by human civilization. From the massive glaciers in Vatnajökull and Snæfellsjökull National parks, to the serenity of the geothermal Blue Lagoon.
Culturally, Iceland thrives, with an impressive music scene, a flourishing film industry and remarkable culinary delights. Their customs and traditions are inspired by centuries of its insular existence. Icelanders’ independent, refined, self-reliant and innovative culture has established itself as a world-leader in creative ingenuity.
