Iceland Travel

The forces of nature are never far from the surface in Iceland, the land of fire and ice. From its famed ring road, you can experience it all. The ghostly ribbons of the northern lights. Volcanoes spewing lava into the night sky. Glaciers that tumble down mountainsides to whale-inhabited seas. Tantalizing geothermal pools and geysers that you can set a watch to. Landscapes many believe are still the haunt of fairies. And when all that gets too much, there’s also the nightlife of Reykjavik, widely hailed as some of the best in the world.

While humble in appearance, the Icelandic capital isn’t so shy when it comes to great attractions. Basking in its reputation as a creative hotspot, Reykjavik manages to be both edgy and traditional. Community remains strong, and whether you explore the museums or knitwear stores, you’re sure to regret booking that return flight quite so soon.

From boat tours to quad bike adventures, Reykjanes is all about exploring the great outdoors. But should the weather take a turn for the worse, there’s always the fine museums to fall back on, whether art or rock music is your bag.
