Out of This World on Planet Earth
Otherworldly landscapes, belching volcanoes and a pervasive, softening calm await in Iceland, a land so exotic it feels like another planet. Geology has made a fantasyland up here near the top of the world, and the welcoming people who live here year-round are more than happy to open their home to you. Lava fields, glaciers and geothermal springs create an amazing experience on land, while whale-watching excursions and life in the small fishing villages make the most of the shores and oceans. Iceland looks marvelous, but there’s true substance to its surface appeal.
