Known as the “Land of Ice and Fire”, Iceland is a country of extreme contrasts: living volcanoes, hot geysers springing from ice lakes, the best view in the world of the Northern Lights, all in a dramatic natural environment. It’s a must on any traveller’s list of places to see.
No matter what time of year you choose to visit there is always something to see. From the beauty of frozen mid-descent waterfalls in the winter to the glow of the midnight sun in summer there is never a bad time to visit Iceland.
For those seeking a glimpse of the phenomenal Northern Lights, you’d better pack your thermals as temperatures drop to -10°C. Daylight hours are almost non-existent between November and April allowing the sky to come to life.
As the northernmost capital of the world, Iceland’s Reykjavik serves as a gateway, either to the many adventures waiting beyond its boundaries, or to the culture within. The city has become a hub for art and music lovers, while providing a notoriously wild nightlife. If you’re more of a foodie than a drinkie then don’t miss out on the impressive number of quality restaurants, you’ll never be stuck for choice.
