iceland roadtrip
Days: 12 
From: $3850
Style: Roadtrip Adventure
For decades Iceland has sat quietly in the icy waters of the North Atlantic, seemingly out of reach to tourists and reserved only for rugged expeditions. Today, this tiny island nation attracts travelers from all reaches of the world. From hitchhiking backpackers to luxury cruisers, Iceland has experienced a significant influx in popularity over the last few years. Even so, most travelers rarely venture beyond the capital city of Reykjavik or a day trip to the Golden Circle. We've designed the Iceland Roadtrip for the travelers that want to see it all and are itching to venture beyond the everyday tourist trail! Gain a true understanding of the shifting scenery and dramatic landscapes that Iceland has to offer as we travel to the far reaches of the country.  
Note: This trip meets the conservation objectives of the Iceland tourism agency to relieve tourism pressure on concentrated locations.

This was an epic adventure of all epic adventures!!!!! So much nature you would need to stay for a lifetime to see it all. It was also what I would like to call a multi-sense experience, EVERYTHING was engaged, sight, smell, touch, hearing taste, and the mind. 

Joe Jermain

The amount of knowledge you receive about your location, the folklore, your guides' attitude and personality are all key points on how they run. If you're only interested in the activities, then get ready to push your limits doing some of the most exhilarating activities. Bottom line, there is something for all; and Beyond the Map is the choice to make
