Iceland
LIVING, BREATHING, STEAMING MOTHER EARTH - Explore Iceland's Uninhabited Interior
Iceland, Europe's last great wilderness straddles the Mid-Atlantic Ridge where the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates part company, creating severe and dramatic landscapes. About the size of Virginia, Iceland is part moonscape, part Middle Earth and wholly original.

If you're the kind of adventurer looking for the truly unusual, seek no further. This is paradise. Traveling the Icelandic highlands takes preparation and a vehicle that can maneuver the varied terrain. If you're looking for the truly unusual, seek no further.
Our four-wheel drive vehicle-supported wilderness hikes explore the otherworldly countryside of Iceland's majestic and bizarre terrain: volcanoes under glaciers, towering waterfalls and boiling fumaroles set in a largely treeless and uninhabitable landscape.

We travel through vivid green valleys, snowcapped peaks and crisp blue fjords and experience the magic of the midnight sun. As much an island of elves and mythology as geysers and hot springs, our guide, Ingo Egilsson enriches our experience with insights into Icelandic history, mythology and Viking-era ruins. It's an Icecapade like nothing you've ever seen before.
