Northwest of the European continent, in the Atlantic Ocean you will find Iceland. Yes, it is cold and pristine, but although this might not be high on your bucket list. Hopefully, we did manage to convince after reading the following reasons to visit the beautiful Iceland.
By far the most popular attraction in Iceland. In an old, moss-covered lava field we find this man-made lake. With a temperature of 39 °C water, which is rich in minerals, silicates and blue-green algae (which provide a beautiful light blue color), this bath is the perfect place to relax.
The Northern Lights
Everyone knows the Northern Lights photographs. And yes, then it already looks great but this is only a fraction of the
beauty when you see it with your own eyes. One with words indescribable glow, a wonderful backdrop, and setting. You need a bit of luck because the Northern Lights is not on command. It is an unexpected phenomenon. Want to make the most of the opportunity, go in the colder months (September to April).
Survive the rúntur
This is the famous pub crawl of Reykjavik. It starts late at night and as a tourist, this requires the necessary endurance and survivability.
Spotting film locations
Iceland is a popular destination for shooting movies and series. There are shootings of Game of Thrones and Die Another Day. As a loyal GoT or James Bond fan you can, of course, not skip those locations.
Descend into a volcano
Only 15 kilometers from the capital Reykjavik, lies the volcano Thrihnukagigur. This dormant volcano is available for tourists. You can even descend into the magma chamber. This tourist attraction is well worth a visit.
Snowmobiles & Glaciers
Does this need further explanation? Every man wants to defy a glacier on a snowmobile.
Snorkeling between two continents
The Silfra Fissure in Pingvellir National Park are the tectonic plates North America and Europe combined. And can you snorkel.
Visit this geyser
This is the mother of geysers. The word geyser is originated by the geyser. It blows water high in the air, every minute and it’s stunning to see!
The capital of Iceland is incredibly vast. Reykjavik only has low-rise buildings, you come everywhere quickly and large parts of this city are undeveloped. A perfect place to enjoy nature and relax your get away.
