22 photos of Iceland that will inspire you to book a trip asap

When you hear the word ‘Iceland’, what do you think of?

We’re going to take a wild guess that geysers and glaciers, volcanoes and waterfalls, and all other manners of dramatic landscapes come to mind.

Spot on. The Nordic island nation is everything you’ve seen on Instagram, and more. And although there are all manners of ways you can see its delights (*cough* Intrepid’s tours *cough*), there’s one 5-day trip that might appeal to the time-poor adventurers among you: Iceland Express.

To highlight just how much you can see in this time period – from the famous Blue Lagoon and Golden Circle, to hauntingly beautiful black-sand beaches and glacier lagoons – we sent pro photographer Ryan Bolton on the trip. Here’s what he came back with:
