Exploring Iceland’s Wild West

Join Freeport’s Michael Perry for an early spring adventure just below the Arctic Circle in Iceland’s majestic West Fjords. Starting in the most northerly capitol city in the world, Reykjavik, we will enjoy a two-day drive up through the heart of the region. Along the way we will stop to view two spectacular waterfalls; Barnafoss and Dynjandi,  hike around the Grabok Crater, stop and admire a friendly herd of iconic Icelandic ponies.   

Based out of the coastal town of Isafjordur we will participate in the 30-mile Fossavatnsgangan xc ski race held each year in the mountains above the town. Then it is back to Reykjavik for urban walks to check out the magnificent Harpa Opera House, eye-catching  Hallgrimskirkja Church, and the 1881 Parliament House.

Lots of Viking history woven in; plus segments on Iceland’s important role in World War II and Iceland’s renewable energy story.
