Iceland < Back
Iceland's volcanic landscape offers a dramatic mix of ice and fire: from snow-covered glaciers and thundering waterfalls to barren lava fields and steaming geysers.
What to see and do in Iceland

The most popular destination in Iceland is Reykjavik. Reykjavik bears the distinction of being the world’s northernmost capital, and for many Icelandic visitors it also serves as a gateway to the rugged adventure options beyond. Recharge after outdoor pursuits in one of the many geothermal springs or luxurious indoor spas. We appreciate Reykjavik’s open-minded and energetic culture that includes a hip and internationally recognised music and arts scene, great food and notoriously "enthusiastic" nightlife.
Akureyri and surroundings (Northern Iceland) were among 10 destinations recommended by travel guide Lonley Planet: “…don’t ignore Iceland’s second city Akureyri and the wild charms of Northern Iceland, all easily accessed by a short connecting flight from Reykjavik.”
