Reykjavik
Suggested Private Excursion

9/15/2021

The fire, frost and water symbolized by the red, white and blue of Iceland’s flag are manifested in this land. Reykjavik, or Smoky Bay, was so named in 874 A.D. by Ingolf Arnarson when he sighted the numerous hot springs on the Seltjarnarnes Peninsula. Today this remarkably pollution-free city is wrapped around a sweeping bay and has managed to retain its charming Old-World atmosphere. A pastiche of red-blue-and green-roofed houses together with the tall gray tower of Hallgrim’s Church dominate the skyline. In Old Town, many of the wooden buildings have been lovingly restored and stand side by side with modern timber and concrete structures. There are fine museums and art galleries; historic pubs present activity in late afternoon. The beautiful countryside outside of Reykjavik includes such natural wonders as volcanoes, geysers, glaciers, mountains and spectacular waterfalls.

Westman Islands
9/16/2021
9/16/2021

Settled by the Norse in the 7th century, the Westman (Westmann) Islands are composed of dramatic coastlines, shaped by numerous volcanic events throughout their history. Surtsey is the newest island, emerging in 1963 after several eruptions shaped new land. Heimaey is the only inhabited island and is dotted with colorful homes along the base of wild seacliffs and green landscapes. You can tour the island's rugged coastline and see orcas, puffin colonies, and the seacave Kettshellur. Every August, the island comes alive with the Westman Islands Festival, with  bonfires and live music 24/7.


Surtsey

Surtsey is a volcanic island belonging to the southern coast of Iceland’s archipelago. This island mysteriously came to be in 1963, when it was born from a huge undersea eruption. Surtsey  is reserved for research and many have said it is here to stay, fears of the island disappearing under the sea have been vanished and many people from all over the world come to experience the presence of this guarded natural gem..

Djupivogur
9/17/2021
9/17/2021

This village at the head of the bay Berufiord developed around an important trading post in the past. In 1589 the German Hansa merchants were granted a trading license there by the Danish king. Later on the Danish introduced the trade monopoly and took over themselves. The oldest houses (1788-1818) date back to the Danish period. One of them, Langabud (1790), has been renovated and transformed into a nice restaurant and museums. Fishing, fish processing and commerce are the main trades. The scenic beauty of the surroundings is renowned and visitors are treated well in every respect.

9/19/2021
9/19/2021

St. Kilda is a volcanic archipelago belonging to western Scotland, and it is now one of the country’s World Heritage Sites. The island is home to some of the biggest sea cliffs in Britain, and is known for the abundance of wild life including birds. St. Kilda now is an isolated island, however for thousands of years it was inhabited by locals that were forced to move out due to bad conditions, ruins of such villages are still standing today.

Fort William
9/20/2021
9/20/2021

At the southern end of the Great Glen, this area's main town is Fort William, a major and well-resourced touring and route centre for the West Highlands. The area also takes in the Highland landscapes between Loch Linnhe, the major sea-loch at the south of the Great Glen, and the western seaboard itself. These include the lands of Ardnamurchan, Ardgour, Morvern and Moidart - rugged landscapes notable for their soft and mild Atlantic climate, and - in places - their lush growth of mossy, fern-rich woodlands.

Portree
9/21/2021
9/21/2021

As the main town along the Isle of Sky within the stunning Inner Hebrides of Scotland, Portree is quaint and unique, with colorful buildings, a lovely pebbled beach, green hills and a peaceful harbor. As it is a very small village, you can explore it easily by foot or bicycle.

Kirkwall (Orkney Islands)
9/22/2021
9/22/2021

The Orkney Islands are different from mainland Britain and reflect the original 9th century Viking settlement. In addition to Norse heritage are remains of prehistoric monuments such as Stenness Standing Stones at Finstown. Steep-roofed stone houses line streets winding around medieval St. Magnus Cathedral. A museum featuring Orkney artifacts is housed in 16th-century Tankerness House. Other attractions include Maes Howe, Britain's best-preserved megalithic tomb, and the stone-age village Skara Brae. Rock circles, cairns, standing stones, ancient tombs and prehistoric villages are scattered about, gaining these islands international recognition. Only the walls and tower of the 12-century residence, Bishop's Palace, stand. The top of the tower affords a great view of the cathedral and across Kirkwall rooftops. Earl's Palace dates from 1600. Its style blends medieval fierceness with elements of French Renaissance architecture - featuring dungeons, massive fireplaces and magnificent central hall. A good mile south of town is Highland Park - the "most northerly legal distillery in Scotland."

Lerwick, Shetland Island
9/23/2021
9/23/2021

The Shetland Islands are Great Britain's most northerly islands, situated nearly fifty miles northeast of the Orkneys. Lerwick is the capital of the principal island of Mainland and is Britain's most northerly town. Founded on the fishing industry and with strong Viking connections, little now remains of the old village of Lerwick. Features of interest include the Cromwellian Fort Charlotte and annual Norse fire festival, Up-Helly-Aa, held every January. On the southern tip of the island is Jarlshof, site of ruins of several Stone Age and Bronze Age dwellings as well as wheel-houses from the Iron Age. Elsewhere on the island is Clichimin Broch, another prehistoric site containing a Bronze Age fort.

Aberdeen
9/24/2021
9/24/2021

An extraordinary symphony in grey, almost everything in Aberdeen is built of granite - even the roads. When drenched with sun and rain, the silvery stone has a fairy-tale shine; when under a cloud it can be a wee bit depressing. Brimming with civic pride, Aberdeen services one of the world's largest offshore oilfields.
