International Expeditions has announced a new active, small-group Iceland Winter Adventure, featuring excursions in the remote reaches of northern Iceland and the Troll Peninsula. Leading guests is an expedition leader, who helps travelers delve into Iceland's distinct nature, culture and folklore. Currently, only one winter departure is scheduled — March 7, 2018 — with additional tours planned for spring 2018 and winter 2019.
Participants on the nine-day Iceland Winter Tour will travel from modern Reykjavik north to Husafell, Lake Myvatn and tiny Hauganes. The journey begins in the Golden Circle, surveying the geothermic forces of Iceland on excursions to famed Gullfoss, Thingvellir National Park, and deep into a lava cave.
