Journey north to the Land of Fire and Ice when temperatures will be pleasantly mild and daylight extends deep into the evening. Over six nights, enjoy insider access to Iceland's wealth of modern and contemporary art, and immerse yourself in the country's breathtaking natural wonders, from majestic waterfalls and black-sand beaches to glacial moraines and geothermal pools. Travel with Pari Stave, an expert on Icelandic art who is the director of Skaftfell, a prominent art center in Iceland's East Fjords, and former Senior Administrator in the Department of Modern and Contemporary Art at The Met. She will introduce you to splendid museums in Reykjavík and the artists who have made Iceland an international art mecca. Discover the groundbreaking work of Jóhannes S. Kjarval, Einar Jónsson, Erró, and the Danish-Icelandic artist Ólafur Elíasson. You will also venture into nature to see how American artists have used Iceland's dreamlike landscapes to create dramatic works of art, from Roni Horn's powerful Vatnasafn / Library of Water to Richard Serra's Afangar, an installation of basalt columns dotted on the perimeter of a pristine island.
