About this trip

Often referred to as the “Land of Fire and Ice”, Iceland's landscape is characterized by waterfalls, geysers, glaciers, volcanoes, beaches, thermal hot springs, and otherworldly steaming lava fields. In addition to stunning landscapes, Iceland is a birder's paradise. Its remote location at the junction of two oceans allows for a unique mix of migratory and vagrant species. Join Reefs to Rockies and Denver Audubon on this unforgettable 10-day birding and natural history tour to Iceland.
