This trip is designed by Kevin Tison
Kevin Tison, a native of Louisiana has been a resident of Southern California for almost 23 years, making his home in Long Beach, CA with his partner, Dollar, and their dog Bronte. Trained as a classical pianist and conductor, he stays busy in his “tuxedo life” on some of the most iconic stages around the world. Off stage, Kevin is an avid traveler, adventurer, and thrill seeker — always ready to climb a mountain, jump from an airplane (which he also flies), scuba dive some of the world’s most beautiful reefs, or compete in endurance sports such as marathons (on all seven continents) and Ironman triathlons and Spartan obstacle races. Discovery is a significant passion of Kevin’s life as he has travelled to over 46 countries, from Antarctica to Greenland. Having been to Iceland on nine trips, it remains one of his favorite places - watching the island’s diverse landscapes come alive in such spectacular displays. Bag always packed and hiking shoes by the door, Kevin is always ready for the next adventure and loves sharing his passion of discovery with others.

Drive through the amazing East Fjords down to the South Coast, visiting Iceland’s famous Jökulsárlón, a glacial lagoon, bordering Vatnajökull National Park (Ice Lagoon) and Diamond Beach. You'll explore the southern coast, taking opportunities to stop and photograph the massive glacier and tongues, along with the fields of moss covered lava rock! Kevin knows a few hidden gems for photo ops along the route!
DAY 7 HIGHLIGHT
Þingvellir National Park
Today, you'll jaunt around Þingvellir (Thingvellir) National Park in the rift valley where the tectonic plates of North America and EuroAsia split. This is an amazing opportunity to go snorkeling in the freezing (don't worry, you'll have a full body suit on for warmth) and possibly purest water in the world!
