Land of Fire & Ice, Iceland-October 2018

Our group of ApertureXplorers will experience the rugged terrain on one of the newest islands in the world by hiking among volcanoes, glaciers, black sand beaches, and so much more!
This trip is operated slightly different from our other expeditions as you will be REQUIRED to rent a vehicle called a camper van. These are small vans, similar to a Ford Transit, allow for sleeping in the back with a full mattress inside capable for sleeping 2 adults. ApertureXplorer operates with these vehicles as our sleeping quarters for the majority of the trip to allow our guides to be flexible on places to stay and see. This flexibility enables our guides and guests to track down and capture Northern Lights, and adjust the trip based on weather conditions for the best results.
See trip details for major locations we will see however there will be much more on the way than we can list.
