Iceland

An exotic travel destination in Europe

Iceland is one of the most exotic travel destinations on the planet. As its name implies, Iceland is constantly covered in ice as more than 11 percent of the country is covered by ice glaciers. I know, that doesn't sound very cozy, but Iceland's climate is surprisingly mild and filled with countless geothermal hot spots.

Akureyri Iceland

Discover Akureyri in northern Iceland

The capital of Iceland, Reykjavik, is the best known tourist destination in Iceland. But its second largest city in the northern part of Iceland, Akureyri, is a tourist attraction in itself, with its natural splendor and many amazing sights. It's an excellent travel destination for a memorable stopover.

Iceland Sagas

Travel to Iceland's Literary Past

Iceland sagas tell stories about disputes between well known farming families. These literary stories or sagas are deeply related to the country's medieval past, its wilderness and rural areas. To explore Iceland's saga sites, you need to travel to the country's wildest and most uninhabitable locations.

Iceland - the land of glaciers

Located in Northern Europe, Iceland is actually a large mountainous island in the North Atlantic that comprises one of the most picturesque places you will ever see. It is never dark in Iceland and nearly the entire landscape is filled with beautiful and colorful wildflowers, especially around the hills that surround the island's deep fjords. The view of the ocean, mountains and delicate grassy shores is spectacular and breathtaking.

These natural hot springs are known all over the world. Like bears in hibernation, Icelanders enjoy spending most of the winter and much of the summer months blissfully soaking in these springs to pass the long months of night away in relative comfort. It seems like the entire island is filled with these natural hot springs.

Traveling by car around the countryside is a novel experience as well since there is only a single road that traverses the whole rim of the island and affords a majestic view of island's barren and icy interior.
