Iceland's Wild Wonders is a visit to the land of fire and ice and so much more! As one of the most geologically active areas on earth, this small country has big sights to see. With super friendly locals, jaw-dropping scenery, and hot springs galore, a trip to Iceland is always a delight. Our eight days will be packed: we'll tour Reykjavik, walk amongst glaciers, ride Icelandic horses, sail through a glacial lagoon, spot migrating Minke and Humpback whales, and see evidence of Iceland's geothermal activity in all its many forms, from geysers to volcanoes. During the day there is plenty of Icelandic highlights that are full of adventure, and spend your nights sleeping in comfy and luxurious lodgings every night. We will explore both the wonderful capital of Reykjavik as well as discovering the natural landscape of the southwest peninsula, so we get the best of both worlds with this trip!

We stayed busy the entire time. Lainie was excellent and so organized, she handled requests like golfing quickly and efficiently. She and our local guide Vigga kept us well informed.
Traveling with my sister where I didn't have to any of the planning. It was awesome to know that we were on the inaugural trip and that our guide had not done all the activities we were doing.
This trip was made special by the scenery and landscape of Iceland. It was just breathtaking. We also had a group of ladies that quickly bonded with each other and enjoyed discovering Iceland together. Also I had the company of my sister to make this trip extra special!
The scenery in Iceland is varied and gorgeous! Every foray into the country presented us with more jaw dropping beauty! We had so Many experiences from lagoons to waterfalls to glaciers, on land and on the sea! The food was amazing and the lodging perfect. As usual on an AGC trip-the other women on the trip were great. Our AGC guide, Lainie, was just wonderful. Calm, fun, knowledgeable, interesting and always going the extra mile for us. Our Icelandic guide, Vigga, shared her love for Iceland with us every day and told great stories while also sharing good information about historical and present day Iceland. Always felt safe with our bus driver, Oskar, who has mad skills!
Wide variety of activities
Really enjoyed all the things we saw and did. I loved being out in the wide open spaces.
The variety of activities and wonderful guides.
This was my first AGC trip and I can honestly say that everything was terrific. All the details, large and small, were taken care of throughout the trip. Our leader was great as was our local guide. The itinerary was busy and we were constantly on the move to see one more beautiful area than the next. Our group of women got along well and we had fun.
