Iceland- The Land of Fire & Ice
$2800 all inclusive
Ecopassports is pleased to announce this guided trip to magnificent Iceland; "the land of fire and ice."
The Ring Road is the nickname for Route 1 in Iceland, the country's main highway. Since most of Iceland's interior is uninhabitable wilderness, this highway only goes around the populated coastal areas, alongside some of the most popular attractions in the country, such as the Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss waterfalls, the Dyrhólaey cliffs and the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon Along this iconic 1300+ km road, we'll see some of the world's most diverse topography and get the opportunity to walk on an iceberg and lava field...all in the same day!
Explore Iceland's culture and learn more about science and environmental issues through visits to the world-renowned Iceland Turf Houses, Solheimer Eco-Village, and the volcano-driven black sand beaches of the south coast.
Ready? Then join Ecopassports on a study abroad tour fusing the richness of all that Iceland has to offer: world-renowned geography, people, culture, and nature.
