Join travel pros Alison Newberry and Matt Sparapani on a tour of Iceland, land of fire and ice.

Iceland has become an increasingly popular destination for nature photographers, and for good reason. Despite its small size and remote location, Iceland offers an astounding array of photographic opportunities including abundant birdlife, stunning geography, enchanting iceberg lagoons, and amazing waterfalls. Over the last decade, Matt and Alison have toured the island independently on three separate occasions. Using a combination of amusing videos, striking photographs and informative narration, Matt and Alison share what makes this enchanting country such a wonderful destination for the avid nature photographer. In addition to the popular sites along the Ring Road, they will share a few of their favorite off-the-beaten path gems that they have discovered while traveling on their do-it-yourself adventures. Be prepared for plenty of puffins!

Matt and Alison discovered their passion for travel (and each other!) while living in Italy over 25 years ago. As newlyweds they discovered a mutual love of nature photography at an Audubon Society workshop in Maine. Since then, they have combined travel and photography with a variety of outdoor activities. From trekking in Nepal to safari in Africa, from backpacking in Patagonia to canoeing in the Boundary Waters, the camera has served as a constant reminder to pause and savor the subtle beauty of nature. While not on the road, Matt & Alison reside in Chicago, where they are both teachers. You can see Matt and Alison’s photography on Instagram @takeahikephotography and follow their adventures on their blog, Take a Hike Photography (www.takeahikephotography.com). They have also published two books: Plan & Go: Wonderland Trail and Hiking Photography (Sandiburg Press).

Armchair Travels is generously funded with a gift from the Rutherford Family Trust.
