Escape the summer heat and join Garden staff member Luana Vargas for an exceptional experience along the Arctic Circle. Much like our Sonoran home, the people and ecology of Iceland are shaped by weather and powerful geological forces. Experience this unique world as we cruise the coastline in the comfort of a superb mega-yacht and explore the natural wonders of the island. Iceland has become a top destination for experiencing pristine nature, gorgeous vistas and vibrant culture. Summers in Iceland are surprisingly warm, lush and green; with days lengthening until the sun dips but never sets. Birders will be especially excited to visit this country, home to huge colonies of kittiwake, razorbill, glaucous gulls and Arctic fulmar. On day six of this journey, you will visit the Vestman Archipelago, home to eight million puffins—the symbol of Iceland. Naturalists and photographers alike will find endless subjects among the breathtaking landscapes, geological features and wildlife.
Come along and experience an exotic, pristine and truly magical landscape!
