The Howard County Chamber (HCCC) is shaking things up for its 2018 Chamber Travel Program. For the first time ever, it’s heading to Iceland this fall.

Join the HCCC on a seven-day, five-night tour of Iceland, a land of geysers, glaciers, volcanoes and rich history. Iceland is an otherworldly place where the forces of nature have created a landscape that allows you to swim in geothermal heated pools, trek across a mossy lava field and drive over an icy glacier, all in one day. Become enchanted by the striking and raw beauty of this extraordinary and geologically young island.

The trip, which runs from Oct. 11–17, with an optional tour extension of two nights, will begin in Reykjavik and includes a tour of the city, a visit to the Viking World Museum and a trip to the Golden Circle. Travelers then will visit Thingvellir National Park and then stop in Fontana, Great Geysir and Gullfoss.

The trip will continue to the southern coast, home to a beautiful agricultural region. After a full night and day in Vik, travelers will take a morning walk along the black sand beach at Reynisfjara lined with basalt-filled caves. The tour also will visit Seljalanfoss and Skogafoss, Iceland’s most famous waterfalls. It continues with visits to Hekla and Eyjafjallajokull volcanoes and then a trip to the Blue Lagoon, a geothermal spa.

The Iceland trip is open to all, but for the first time, member pricing is being offered to everyone. The purchase price of $2,899 includes: round trip airfare, quality hotels, superb cuisine including nine meals, day trips, a professional tour director, deluxe motor coaches and baggage handling for one piece of checked luggage outside of the airport.
