Iceland in a Nutshell
Many claim that a visit to this otherworldly island in Northern Europe can be mind-opening and a trip of a lifetime. And how could it be any different? There is a lot to take in from scenic landscapes of steaming hot lagoons, thundering waterfalls, bursting geysers, the contrast of raging volcanoes and aquamarine ice caves to delicious delicacies, a unique culture and artistic people.
A Kingdom of Adventure
There is so much to do and explore in Iceland that this remote island in the far north of Europe is now considered one of the most exciting and adventurous destinations on many travellers’ bucket lists. Many little and peaceful villages set the base for most of the must-see wonders in the Land of Fire and Ice and the Ring Road is the one that traverses them throughout the whole island, taking you on a journey to a kingdom like no other.
If not wishing to travel far then there’s the famous Golden Circle, a faster and easier option for those wishing to get the most of their stay in Iceland by visiting top attractions located not far from Reykjavík, in the upper part of the Southlands: Þingvellir National Park, the Geysir Geothermal Area, and Gullfoss Waterfall.
