Neil Degrasse Tyson, author of our Summer Reading book and host of the Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey series, says of Iceland, “Nothing comes close [to Iceland] — not that I’ve been everywhere in the world, maybe something else does come close and I don’t know it yet.”
“We filmed several episodes, and bits and pieces of ‘Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey’ in Iceland….[because] it’s still geologically alive. So it was one stop shopping. It just had so many backdrops to tell a story that could excite your interest in places you’ve never been, in alien landscapes you may have only dreamed about.”

Join Senior librarian, Tom Cummiskey as he takes you on a seven-day tour of the highlights of Iceland, from exciting Reykjavik to some of the most vast and distant landscapes on Earth. Refreshments provided by Sunrise of Plymouth.
