About the Study Leader 

The academic portion of this journey will be led by an expert expedition team from Lindblad Expeditions, including an expedition leader, veteran naturalists, an undersea specialist, local experts, musicians, as well as a National Geographic Photography Expert.

About the Journey 

Discover the land of fire and ice on a voyage to the remote shores and volcanic isles of northwest Iceland. Navigate the dramatic coastlines of the secluded eastern region of the Westfjords – an area difficult to access but boasting spectacular beauty and rich history. Explore the legacy of Viking explorers and intrepid fishermen during visits to historic villages. Hike and bike along rugged fjords and discover stunning waterfalls and nature-filled landscapes. Keep watch for the close to 20 whale species that call the Westfjords home. Your expert expedition team will do whatever it takes to ensure you have an unforgettable experience. For those wishing to continue the adventure, a Golden Circle and Blue Lagoon pre-voyage extension will be offered.

Please note: Princeton travelers will be joined by those from Lindblad Expeditions.
