History, culture and wild coastal landscapes on Saga Island

Iceland is located on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, which runs right through the country. This location means that the island is highly geologically active, with many volcanoes and geysers. The unspoilt nature, majestic mountains and stunning waterfalls are amongst Europe's most powerful and awe-inspiring sights. We spend two days discovering many of Iceland's cultural and natural secrets.

From Iceland, we continue to rarely visited southern Greenland, taking in long fjords, icy glaciers and cosy settlements. Greenland's arctic wilderness offers some of the most spectacular and unspoilt scenery anywhere on earth. It is the largest island on the planet, and its frozen coastline has witnessed the birth of some of nature's most breath-taking creations.
