On The Go Tours has launched a one of a kind tour which will combine the green lands of Iceland and the icefields of Greenland in one incredible trip.

The newly curated Best of Iceland and Greenland tour will allow explorers to experience Iceland’s otherworldly landscape steeped in history before jetting across to the untouched non-continental island of Greenland, home to some of the planet’s most spectacular fjords.

The 17-day tour spans eight days in each country, starting in Iceland, ‘the Land of Fire and Ice’ and home to the largest glaciers in Europe, as well as some of the world's most active volcanoes.

Setting off from Reykjavik, explorers will journey a complete loop of the country with visits to the picturesque town of Akureyri, to enjoy a soak in the therapeutic waters of the Mývatn nature baths, and to Vatnajokull - Europe’s largest glacier.

The second half of the journey is continued by flight to South Greenland where travellers will board S/V Rembrandt Van Rijn to spend a week exploring the fjords and sailing past dramatic icebergs while taking in some of Greenland's scenery. Highlights include bathing in hot springs and walking to the edge of the famous Greenlandic Ice Cap. With the S/V Rembrandt Van Rijn set to relocate next year, the operator is offering the last chance to board the ship this summer from £3,579 per person.

As with all tours, guides are on-hand and itineraries also allow free time for independent exploration.

The 17-day Best of Iceland and Greenland tour leads in at £3,579 per person including eight nights in three-star accommodation in Iceland, seven nights on S/V Rembrandt van Rijn, daily breakfast, six lunches, seven dinners, seven excursions including a guided hike to Grabrok volcano crater and a visit to the natural history and seal museum in Hvammstangi, arrival and departure transfer by FLYBUS shuttle in Iceland, Economy flights from Reykjavik to Narsarsuaq and all relevant transfers. The price is valid for travel between July 1 and August 14.
