In-person

Iceland with Rick Steves

Date

Admission

The Museum thanks Rick Steves and Cameron Hewitt for donating their time to support the National Nordic Museum with this special event.

Join Rick Steves for a special screening of his newest Public Television production, Rick Steves’ Iceland. This one-hour special begins in Reykjavík, with endearing sights and thermal pools, plus a side-trip to the Golden Circle's gorges, geysers, and waterfalls. Then, after fording rivers in a desolate valley and spotting puffins on volcano-shaped islands, we drive the 800-mile Ring Road — connecting glaciers, fjords, geothermal hotspots, sod-roofed settlements, and majestic Icelandic nature.

Rick and his co-author/co-host, Cameron Hewitt, will share some behind-the-camera stories of the production of the show and answer questions about travel in Iceland. A reception with Rick will begin at 5pm and include the opportunity to pick up an autographed copy of the newest edition of Rick and Cameron’s Iceland guidebook and explore the Museum before the screening.

    Rick Steves

    Rick Steves is a popular public television host, a best-selling guidebook author, and an outspoken activist who encourages Americans to broaden their perspectives through travel. But above all else, Rick considers himself a teacher. He taught his first travel class at his college campus in the mid-1970s — and now, more than 40 years later, he still measures his success not by dollars earned, but by trips impacted.
