Iceland Camping on a Shoestring

Problem: You want to fully explore Iceland but dont have loads of cash at your disposal. Solution: Take this economical nine-day adventure and get the whole experience for significantly less. This tour was specifically built for travellers who dont want to cut corners on the experience but dont mind camping and travelling a little leaner. Youll get to witness the mind-blowing geysers, waterfalls, lava formations, and other natural delights of this volcanic wonderland, plus the chance to hike glaciers, take to the sea in search of whales, and hang out in the unique city of Reykjavk, all at a reasonable cost. Suggestion: Should we rename it (Reasonable Pr)Iceland? (No. No we should not.)
