Iceland is a rather unfortunate name for this land of exquisite beauty and sharp contrasts. In the Viking Sagas, there is a legend that the first explorer to discover the island wanted to keep it all to himself, so he named a green country “Iceland” and a nearby frozen wasteland “Greenland,” hoping that future immigrants would chart their course further north. Who knew Vikings were such practical jokers?

Once you experience Iceland, you’ll understand what early settlers were eager to protect. Majestic landscapes, twisting coastlines, deep fjords, intricately carved mountains, belching mud pools, steaming hot springs, blinding glaciers, heavenly waterfalls and hellish volcanoes all contribute to the sense that the land has just emerged from Mother Nature’s forge.

This magnificent country is perfect for a summer fling! The sky is light almost 24 hours per day, everyone speaks English, the friendly city of Reykjavík is festooned with gay flags, and it seems like the entire country turns out for a spectacular celebration of Iceland’s Gay Pride. Join us, as we revel in an electric green landscape, full of wide-open spaces, and discover one of Europe’s best kept secrets.
