Distant, out of this world and primevally mystical – a perfect description for the music of Bjork and Sigur Ros, Torsmerk National Park and Iceland itself. We will begin unravelling the ancient riddles of the Land of Ice in Reykjavik – the northernmost and cleanest city in Europe – followed by a trip across the Golden Circle of nature’s beauty. And, of course, we will turn away from the beaten path, discovering glacier rafting on the Hvita river, walking through the Silfra valley formed over the junction of the lithospheric plates, racing across the lava fields on quad bikes and bathing in the thermal springs. And this is only the beginning! Iceland has no less surprises in store for all of our senses than Reykjavik’s Phallological Museum of artefacts.
