Why Travel Iceland?

 

Iceland, a Nordic island nation, is defined by its dramatic volcanic landscape of geysers, hot springs, waterfalls, glaciers and black-sand beaches. The capital, Reykjavik, home to the majority of the population, runs on geothermal power and offers a renowned nightlife scene as well as Viking history museums. The glaciers in Vatnajökull and Snæfellsnes national parks are popular for ice climbing, hiking and snowmobiling.

 

Speaking of Reykjavik, it is a cool, quirky, and cutting-edge place that will captivate you with an enticing combination of jaw-dropping nature just outside its doorstep and cosmopolitan delights at the same time. On the other hand, the landscape of East Iceland exhibits an extraordinary palette of colors in a contrast of extremes with narrow fjords, jagged peaks, toppling waterfalls, geothermal hotspots, lush forests and endless green valleys where you can truly experience tranquility with nature.

 

The West of Island is an enormous area characterized by fjords, valleys, volcanoes and craters. Dancing along the edge of the Arctic Circle, North Iceland probably sounds pretty cold! Surprisingly, this area experiences some of the mildest temperatures in the country and offers a huge spectrum of scenery to explore, from the soft and gentle to the awesomely spectacular.

 

The South coast of Iceland holds some of the most beautiful natural attractions in Iceland. The area boasts a unique mix of volcanoes and glaciers, geysers, hot springs and waterfalls, along with multiple historic sites like the UNESCO site of Thingvellir.

 

Incase a powerful hot stream shooting from the ground is exciting for you, you could visit the Strokkur in the southwest of Iceland beside the Hvítá River as it is a popular fountain geyser. Many geysers are also found in Haukadalur in the south of the country.

 

Next, Landmannalauga—the multicolored rhyolite mountains, lava fields and the Hekla volcano make it a popular tourist destination too. The striking landscapes look like a different planet. Hiking and horse riding are among the most popular activities here. Even Kirkjufell Mountain located near a small town of Grundarfjörður in the western Iceland is worth a visit as one can find small waterfalls and admire the Northern Lights at night.

 

Amongst other include the Skaftafell Ice Cave, Vatnajökull National Park, Blue Lagoon, Grindavík, Hallgrímskirkja—a unique church situated in the middle of Reykjavík and Gullfoss Waterfall.
