Trip will concentrate on the deeper interior than we have done before. Accommodations will be in the Highlands much of the time and not on the coast. Goal is to get deep inside and see more of the harder to get to landscapes and glaciers. Trip is also designed to be more affordable. Iceland is a very expensive place to visit and the costs have increased steadily over the years. We are attempting to bring the cost back down to earth.
