The

Welcome to the "Land of Fire and Ice," neverending views, rainbow-covered waterfalls, colorful towns straight out of a fairytale, active volcanoes, and glacier lagoons. In Iceland, you can walk on glaciers, take a dip in hot springs, make friends with mini horses, and dig your feet into black sand beaches. 

We'll stand between two continents in Thingvellir National Park, look for puffins perched on the giant basalt columns at Reynisfjara beach, stand beneath the striking Seljalandsfoss waterfall, and chase the Northern Lights. Of course, you can't miss soaking in the Blue Lagoon and checking out the art scene around the capital city of Reykjavik. 

You may not be able to pronounce every place we go in Iceland,

but they'll all be sure to take your breath away.
