Iceland Travel Guide
Iceland offers a variety of experiences, regardless of when you visit. This a destination for all seasons, from the midnight sun of summer to the northern lights of winter. It is a land of Viking heritage, gushing geysers, vast glaciers, powerful waterfalls, active volcanoes, seaside villages and impressive mountain views. It is also a land of contrasts: the modern capital city and the untouched wilderness areas, the cool breezes and the geothermal heat, the changing landscapes at every turn. See even more reasons why you should visit Iceland.
As an island near the Arctic Circle and as the least densely populated country in Europe, Iceland is considered one of the world's most offbeat destinations. Yet most visitors are surprised by how accessible it is – just 3 hours by air from London and 5 hours from New York.
