In June 2016, I participated in the Road Scholar Photography Tour of Iceland. Over 10-days, we explored the southern one-third of this stunningly beautiful island country.
We started the tour at the Blue Lagoon, traveled east along the rugged coastline, past magnificent waterfalls, glacier fields, iceberg lagoon and black sand beaches. We turned north into the central highlands into multi-colored mountains, an active volcano and rift valley.
The tour ended in the capital city of Reykjavik, one of the nicest small cities in the world. There is a separate blog post for Reykjavik following this album.
The tour was very well organized and we stayed in some unique hotels. The Eldhestar, a ranch hotel noted for its beautiful Icelandic horses was really special.
The two tour leaders, Eric and Petur, created an itinerary that captured the essence of "The Land of Fire and Ice" - both in its beauty and culture.
