We have three trips to Iceland each year, one in December and two in May. The southwest Iceland trip usually begins in early May and the northeast trip begins immediately after that. You can take each trip separately or combine the trips and see both areas in one trip. Each trip in May is ten days long. We also have a seven day trip in December for winter solstice, Christmas and to see the northern lights.

The southwest area has fewer birds and so we do more hiking. The hiking is easy and casual. We spend more time in Reykjavik and small towns so you will experience more of the Icelandic culture and art. We will dine at some very nice restaurants in Reykjavik.

The northeast area has a lot of birds and marine life to see and so there is less hiking. The cabins and hotels that we stay at in the northeast tend to be in rural and remote areas. We sometimes cook our own meals as a group.

The winter trip is more of a city tour with a couple of days spent in the countryside and time spent soaking in various hot springs.

On all trips you will see, learn and experience amazing things whether you are a birder, hiker or simply love nature and travel. We will see birds, marine life, Icelandic horses, glaciers, volcanoes, mountains, rivers, valleys, waterfalls, forests, dramatic coastlines, beaches, ocean waves, boats and Icelandic culture, art and history.
