Marvel at incredible volcanic history, including Europe’s newest island

Learn about the compelling history of the volcanically active area region of the Vestmannaeyjars, which has experienced two major eruptions in recent times. 1963 saw the formation of the island of Surtsey and the Eldfell eruption ten years later destroyed much of the island of Heimaey.

Cross the Arctic Circle at Iceland's northernmost point of Grímsey

Visit Grímsey, which lies upon the Arctic Circle (66° 33’ North) and earns Iceland its title as one of the world’s eight Arctic nations—just barely! Cross this fabled line of latitude off your bucket list by travelling to the secluded island forty kilometres off Iceland’s north coast.
