Reykjavik, Iceland is a unique destination that offers pristine nature, breathtaking landscapes and vibrant culture. As the most northerly capital in the world, Reykjavik sits at the southwest extreme of Iceland. Indeed this is a land of extremes, of fire and snow with volcanoes and glaciers sitting side-by-side. First-time visitors to Reykjavik find it hard to believe that they are actually in a European capital. Low-level wooden buildings, many still bearing the corrugated roofs that are so distinctive of Icelandic architecture, seem more typical of an isolated village than an international city. However, once you start to explore this furthest flung outpost of the European continent you realize that appearances can be deceptive. There's a fair slice of history in this forward thinking city as well. The Vikings left their indelible mark, and artifacts, which are housed in the National Museum. Viking influence also extends to Icelandic art, displayed in the National Art Gallery, and famously by the sculptor Einar Jónsson, who drew on the famous sagas to create the sculptures displayed in his gallery.
Your five night/six-day trip includes roundtrip coach airfare, five wonderful hotel nights and a city tour.

*2015 was our first year
working with a truly professional full
service auctioneer. We did a full search and were so pleased with our decision
to go with Impact Auctions! Not only did we raise MORE money but the live auction was
more entertaining than in past years! Thank you!
