Join Pari Stave, an expert in contemporary Icelandic art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, on a journey to Iceland, an "incredibly beautiful and majestic" country she knows well. Stay at exceptional hotels in the countryside and in lively Reykjavik. Meet prominent artists in their homes and studios, enjoy lunch at the home of private collectors, and tour the National Museum of Iceland with a curator. Marvel at volcanoes, geysers, waterfalls, and glaciers. Spend a morning at UNESCO-listed Thingvellir, where the world's oldest parliament was established over a thousand years ago. Hear vivid Icelandic sagas recited by a specialist in medieval literature, and see the spectacular Richard Serra art installation, Afangar ("Standing Stones"), on the tiny, unspoiled island of Videy.
