Inspired by Iceland
This iconic Nordic European island nation nestled between Norway, Great Britain, and Greenland in the Norwegian Sea offers a vibrant palette of unique and contrasting vistas of ice and fire! Dramatic land and seascapes beckon you to explore Iceland’s plethora of breathtaking soaring volcanic monuments, steaming hot springs and natural geysers, gouging glaciers and cascading waterfalls from every viewpoint. And if it’s a fiery contrasting night scene you crave, Iceland’s capital city Reykjavik will seduce you with a dazzling array of nightclubs, fine wining & dining, and cool cocktails beside the shimmering ocean lapping unique black sanded shores.
Dive Between American and Eurasian Plates
At a unique junction where the North American Continent ‘kisses’ the Euriasian Continent, nature created a marine diver’s undersea utopia in the form of the Silfra fissure, an impressive geological crack dividing the two gigantic tectonic plates that are still in constant creeping motion beneath the Earth’s surface!
Silfra has long been acknowledged as one of the world’s top 10 finest diving locations due to its pristine crystal clear glacial water from the nearby Langjökull and has filtered through porous underground lava for 30-100 years until it reaches the north end of Thingvellir Lake. The water is so clear that underwater visibility exceeds 100 yards, and so pure that it also makes for healthy natural drinking water.
Northern Light Exposure
Experience our world’s most magnificent and mystical natural light show in the sky from the most optimal remote destination far away from the light pollution and distractions of the city. Iceland offers one of the finest observation locations in the world to marvel at the awe inspiring Aurora Borealis, the Northern Lights.
For 8 months of the year, the Northern Lights grace the Icelandic nighttime skies with their kaleidoscopic arrays of swirling magical illumination and spirit-like trails of iridescence weaving seemingly randomly amongst the twinkling pinpoints of starlight.
The vast majority of tourists visiting Iceland concur that their primary purpose and mission is to experience the spectacular Northern Lights from this ideal vantage point.
A myriad of colors intermingle with towering natural monuments of black & white rock contrasting with blue ice-formed stalactites and stalagmites secreted deep within the vast profusion of Iceland’s caverns and ice caves. Explore the dramatic volcano scorched lava landscapes, craggy glacier carved crevices, peaks, gorges and hidden labyrinths of underground fascination tunneling through every surreal passage across Vatnajökull and Snæfellsjökull national parks.
Astonishing scenery which has literally been frozen in time awaits you in the vast caverns of the Vatnshellir Cave (water cave), the Leidarendi Cave (end of the road cave), and the Gjabakkahellir Cave to name just a few in the land of so many.
