26 Oct October 26, 2016 by Vision Travel in Destinations To say Iceland is on many travellers radar would be an understatement, as despite it’s name, Iceland is hot. Recently Iceland was named the hottest active destination for 2017 by Virtuoso, the world’s leading luxury travel network of which Vision Travel are members. Iceland’s geology in all its manifestations––glaciers, thundering waterfalls, immense cliffs, geothermal springs, boiling mud pots, and rock and lava-scapes of unearthly beauty––is world-class. It alone makes a circumnavigation a very compelling idea. And when you add in the other itinerary components––Iceland’s people, their unique cultural heritage and contemporary character, the island’s geography and birdlife––seeing it all in one 360º expedition is irresistible. There’s one place on Earth where geology is so exciting, it’s downright sexy, even if you’re not a geologist: Iceland. Geologically young, Iceland is located on both the Iceland hotspot and the Mid-Atlantic Ridge––which means it is highly geologically active with many volcanoes––hundreds of them, in fact. Most famously, the volcano in Eyjafjallajökull erupted in 2010. Do to the high demand by travellers, Vision is offering a spectacular 7 night Circumnavigation of Iceland group departure which will be escorted by a Vision Travel Representative. Departing July 4, 2017 and travelling with Lindblad Expeditions on board National Geographic Orion this voyage is one you don’t want to miss. Ready to go?
