Highlights of Iceland

One of the most beautiful countries on earth, the Republic of Iceland is a European island nation located in the North Atlantic Ocean. Iceland is home to the marvels of Mother Nature with icecaps and grinding glaciers, gushing geysers, steaming solfataras, volcanic eruptions carved by glaciers, hot springs, infectious landscapes, towering sea-cliffs, raging rivers, glorious waterfalls, a throng of birds, and cavorting whales.

The capital of Iceland, Reykjavik, is famous for museums and galleries, cafes and world-class restaurants, backed by snow-topped mountains and a wild nightlife! Enjoy the spouting whales at Husavik, white water rafting on Jokulsa-Austari glacial rivers, the town of Isafjorour in rugged Westfjords, awesome sights of Snafellsjokull peaks and glaciers, kayaking in the bohemian Eastfjords village of Seyoisfjorour, lake Myvatn teeming with bird life, hot springs, lava flows and volcanoes. After you rest up from all of that, go hiking in the canyon at the national park of Jokulsargljufur, Europe's most powerful waterfall, visit the fishing village of Siglufjorour, a fine fjord setting in the capital of the North-Akureyri, or explore the hot spring filled ice caves at Kverkfjoll. Iceland is simply astounding, and the best time to visit is from mid-June to August.
