Behind the Mountains
During this trip, we’ll venture into the interior of Iceland, only accessible during summer months. Truly between fire and ice, this a region of chaotically beautiful and dynamic landscapes worth exploring.
Experience this celebrated Himalayan trek among the world’s highest peaks as you learn about the ancient and evolving Sherpa culture. This is a trip of high mountain trails, remote settlements, mystical monasteries, highflying prayer flags, and mighty vistas.
Walk, relax, and rejuvenate as you explore the sumptuous landscapes of Tuscany. Spend a week exploring local villages, unearthing the Etruscan treasures, meandering through the countryside, and enjoying daily yoga practice.
