The Wonders of Iceland: A Circle Tour for Women
5-13 October 2017
A nine day 9 night escorted small group tour leaving New York and circling Iceland before returning to NY.
October is a good time to visit Iceland. There are enough hours of darkness to improve chances of seeing the magnificent Aurora Borealis, better known as the Northern Lights, yet still enough hours of daylight to be able to view many of Iceland’s most magnificent landscapes.
In fact, this itinerary was developed with the Northern Lights in mind. We will spend 5 nights in the countryside, away from ambient city light. This darkness provides optimal conditions for star gazing as well as viewing the Aurora. Of course there’s never any guarantee that the Aurora will be visible. It’s all a matter of luck and cloud cover.
Nonetheless, we will have plenty of marvels of nature to experience, whether or not we get to view the Northern Lights. The weather in October is quite mild relatively speaking, making our wait under the night sky for the Aurora to show herself more comfortable than it would be in the dead of winter.
Furthermore, because we are traveling before the cold weather forces the closing of some roads and tracks, we can still venture to the north and east of the country, something that can only be done with difficulty, if at all, in the coldest winter months. Our I.N.D.Y. Adventure will in fact circle the island. We will not limit ourselves to visiting the southern coast, as so many tours do. Read more
I am not dead yet – I.N.D.Y.
The trip is organised by a small travel company operating out of New York run by Liz McCartney offering boutique trips for women whose still have passion, that zest for life that lends itself to the name of this Travel Society for Women. That’s what the acronym I.N.D.Y. represents : I’m Not Dead Yet!
I still look forward to discovering the world and to traveling with women who love to travel as much as I do, no matter what life has thrown their way. I may be getting older but I’m not dead yet. Far from it. writes Liz
