Iceland Adventure with Colleen Alsberg

July 15, 2022 to July 24, 2022

This group currently has limited availability – Please contact Fox World Travel at 1-887-369-8785 for more information.

Join Fox World Travel and Colleen Alsberg to discover the Icelandic folklore with clans of elves and trolls living in the country`s extraordinary hills, rocky outcrops, and lava fields.. Will you meet these “Huldufólk” or “Hidden People” rumored to dislike churches, daylight, and electricity? Hard to say, but here is what you will see on this breathtaking tour of Iceland—active volcanoes, roaring waterfalls, jagged glaciers, floating icebergs, black-sand beaches, and brilliant-blue geothermal springs. Unique, local experiences and adventures await in the “Land of Fire and Ice,” including tasting piping hot bread baked by the heat from the hot springs, sipping Geysir schnapps served at freezing point, and standing in awe before the spectacular Lake Jökulsárlón, home to Europe’s largest glacier and the site of some of the most dramatic scenes from the James Bond movie Die Another Day. The gargantuan sights in the land of the elves will surely leave you stirred, not shaken.
