Iceland is known as the ‘land of fire and ice’. No matter how much you hear about the awe-inspiring natural phenomena of this island on the edge of the Arctic Circle, nothing can prepare you for the breathtaking spectacle that is Iceland.  This small island nation is full of contrasts and contradictions. It is a place where steaming geysers erupt from icy glaciers and where molten lava spews from icy snow-capped peaks. It’s a place where the astonishing Aurora Borealis lights up the night sky, and where perpetually dark winters are offset by the glorious midnight sun of summer.

With the exception of Reykjavik, the country’s population centers are small, with diminutive towns, fishing villages, farms and minute hamlets clustered along the coastal fringes. The interior, meanwhile, remains totally uninhabited. What the Icelanders lack in numbers, they certainly make up for in warmth, quirkiness, and boundless creativity. Add to this, one of the highest standards of living on earth and you have, quite simply, one of the world’s most intriguing destinations.

Some of the Highlights of Iceland are: Hike an active vulcano. Visit a living museums were you can bake your own bread. Go whale watching in Húsavík. Soak and relax in one of the many geothermal baths and spas. Discover the many caves that were formed by lava flows. Enjoy Reykjavík’s unmatched nightlife.
After the snow melts and the mud dries in summer, Iceland reveals its incredible hiking routes past stunning natural sites. Hikers can try the 5 hours Stórurð trail in the East. It is famous for its turquoise ponds trapped by huge boulders.
