Discover the Magic of Iceland

Imagine an island covered in snow and ice. There are almost no trees but rocky deserts and empty moors as far as the eye can see. But it’s not icy everywhere, in places the ground itself is so hot that steam rises from the surface of the earth. Everywhere you look, mountaintops frame your view, and rivers bend and turn to eventually become mesmerizing waterfalls.

Geothermal areas, geysir

The golden circle is the most popular tourist route in Iceland for a reason. There’s Þingvellir, the heart of the Icelandic republic’s history, a valley that’s situated right where the earth’s tectonic plates are ever-so-slowly pulling apart. There’s also the Geysir geothermal area. The heat in the ground is visible on the surface, with bubbling cauldrons of boiling water and discolouration where the Strokkur geyser spews boiling water several meters into the air every 10 or so minutes!

Waterfalls

There’s just something about a waterfall that instantly captures your attention. The thundering power of the endless stream of water, the fine mist in the air, the tiny rainbows glistening in the mist – there’s simply nothing like it! Iceland’s south coast has some of the country’s most popular waterfalls. There’s Seljalandsfoss, a tall waterfall that falls in the mouth of a cave. You can walk behind it, but be careful! Close by is the Skógafoss waterfall, a powerful waterfall falling over the edge of the Eyjafjöll mountains onto the plains below.

Glaciers

11% of Iceland’s surface is covered with glaciers. These icy white giants seem like endless fields of snow from afar but once you’re on top of them, you’ll see that they have a landscape of their own, with hills, valleys and canyons. If you feel like getting up close and personal, you can go hiking on a glacier, snowmobiling, or simply walk up the edge of the glacier, admiring its beauty.

Black sand beaches

Iceland has plenty of beaches, just not the sunny beige ones you’re used to. There’s nothing quite as striking as frothy white waves crashing up on the jet-black sands of Iceland’s coasts. The south coast’s Reynisfjara beach is infamous for its powerful waves but Djúpalónssandur in the Snæfellsnes peninsula is equally gorgeous!
