Private Ready-to-Book Journeys

These carefully curated journeys save you precious planning time without sacrificing any of the travel expertise and in-country connections you’d expect from GeoEx.

  • Off-the-beaten-path experiences, smartly timed visits, and hand-picked atmospheric lodgings
  • Spectacular waterfalls, lava fields, glaciers, geysers, and snowcapped volcanoes
  • Spot puffins on an ocean safari in the Vestmannaeyjar archipelago
  • Sophisticated Reykjavík and island lore

Volcanoes, glaciers, hot springs, cool, mossy valleys—Icelandic landscapes are the stuff of fairy tales. (It’s no wonder locals talk about respecting the elves.) This private Iceland adventure focuses on the southern coast of this living, breathing island. Traveling by souped-up four-by-four, you sample the Nordic lifestyle of design-rich and fashion-forward Reykjavik, spot sea life and whales, and venture into dramatic scenery through the Golden Circle, Westman Islands, and Reykjanes Peninsula. To steer clear of the increasing number of travelers, we arrange experiences away from the crowds on our land of fire and ice tour. Your trip will benefit from smartly timed visits and a stay at The Retreat at the Blue Lagoon with exclusive access.
