Lundi Essence of Iceland
- 7 Days
You’ll be surprised how much you’ll fit into one week exploring Iceland, from Reykjavík in the east to Höfn in the west. It’s no secret that Iceland is a feast for the eyes, but what you may not know is how fascinating Icelandic people are. You’ll witness their self sufficiency and learn about their proud viking heritage, in fact, their language today is very similar to what it was during the Viking Age! Iceland is commonly ranked as one of the happiest nations in the world, so prepare to have some of this attitude rub off, when you’re out and about exploring with the locals. Hiking is the main activity on this trip, with a touch of kayaking on a lagoon in Vatnajökull National Park.
