Discovering the Beauty of Iceland (10 Steps at a Time)


  • Reykjavik Iceland (map)

Small Tour Group with Robynn Smith and Gary Shapiro

In June 2019, I invite you to join Gary Shapiro and myself for a five-day scenic adventure in Reykjavik and the surrounding regions. Our emphasis is art, nature and culture.

I began traveling through Iceland eight years ago, and have been back every year! I find it is impossible for me to walk ten steps in Iceland without stopping. I am compelled to take a photo, shoot a video, or stop to breathe in the magnificence of the exotic landscape.

Tour activities will include: 

  • Welcome dinner and orientation to Iceland

  • Golden Circle day tour in the comfort of a private tour van with an English speaking guide. Waterfalls, geysers, the meeting of tectonic plates, birds, horses, sheep!

  • Natural hot springs for a soothing soak in the evening summer sun

  • Day tour of Reykjavik including Harpa, the internationally acclaimed music hall, Hallgrimskirkja church, the harbor, museums, studios, galleries and other cultural sites.

  • Horseback riding on the famous, smooth and kind Icelandic horses-suitable for beginner through expert rider.

  • Swim and soak in local town pools-a “must do” experience in Iceland.

  • Excellent fresh, local cuisine

There will be plenty of time for you to do your own things such as riding bikes, hiking, kayaking or simply relaxing.

The tour includes comfortable, modern accommodations at a lovely family run hotel close to the capital., surrounded by a nature preserve. All breakfasts and most dinners are included, and the food is wonderful!

Our group will be limited to ten guests. The package price is $2500. Per person, double occupancy. Airfare is not included. There is a supplemental fee for single rooms.
