Though remote and isolated, Iceland is bursting with natural attractions and cultural gems. Bookended by stays in Reykjavik, this escorted tour showcases everything from iceberg-strewn lagoons and the seldom-visited Eastfjords to the surreal volcanicity of northern Lake Mývatn. And, after six memorable days of off-the-beaten-track circumnavigation, you’ll still have time to take in the famous sights of Gullfoss, Geysir and the Thingvellir National Park in the southwest’s spectacular Golden Circle.
