Amava Take: Iceland is a center of scenic wonder. Lava fields and hot pools, glaciers, waterfalls and fjords. As an Amava Member, you have exclusive access to 10% off across all dates in 2020 for two phenomenal trips: Iceland: Land of Fire and Ice and Icelandic Adventure.
Iceland: Land of Fire and Ice takes you through the south and west of astonishingly beautiful Iceland. The activity level is moderate, so you’ll have plenty of time to relax and reflect as you stay overnight in a local fishing village, enjoy a picturesque cruise, soak in the Blue Lagoon, whale watch and hike or stroll in lava fields.
If you want an even more active experience in a smaller group, Collette’s Icelandic Adventure delivers with a walking tour of Reykjavik, a trip to Thingvellir National Park, the unbelievable Gullfoss Waterfall and the Friðheimar greenhouse cultivation center. Also included are a countryside farmhouse stay, whale watching in Skjalfandi Bay, travel to the Diamond Circle and the vast Asbyrgi Canyon. Want more? Climb aboard a mountain truck to explore the Snæfellsjökull glacier immortalized in Jules Verne’s Journey to the Center of the Earth and choose between an expertly guided mountain or glacier hike.
Whichever style you choose, the spectacular landscapes and incredible culture of Iceland await and Collette will take care of all the details.
