Iceland the Land of Fire & Ice offers a whole host of natural wonders – volcanic landscapes, erupting geysers, and thermal lagoons. Above Iceland, are some of the clearest skies in the area and great for spotting the infamous Northern lights.
Iceland is a country of extreme geological contrasts. widely known as “the land of fire and ice” Iceland is home to some of the largest glaciers in Europe, and some of the world’s most active volcanoes. Iceland is also the land of light and darkness. long summer days with near 24-hours of sunshine are offset by short winter days with only a few hours of daylight.
Ice is of course one of Iceland’s big draws for tourists - more specifically the dramatic Glaciers which slide down to the coast calving icebergs and magnificent lagoons. The most famous being the Blue lagoon which is a geothermal spa. The elusive Northern Lights, feature on many a bucket list. There is no sure way to see them, but it is more likely during the winter months between September and April. Main sights include the towering Hallgrímskirkja Church and the National Museum,exhibiting the country's compelling history and culture. And the capital, Reykjavik offers a large choice of accommodation and a vibrant night life.
