The sheer power of the elements
Iceland is a location known for its impressive natural displays and extraordinary lifetime experiences. A dip in the geothermal pool of the Blue Lagoon, a night gazing at the stars waiting for the Northern Lights and a walk across rocky terrains that leads you to an inactive volcano, there really is no other experience like it. Visitors should make sure they see as many of these natural wonders as possible, they really have to be seen to be believed.
A stark contrast
In stark contrast to the icy glaciers of the north, the south of Iceland offers a milder climate and familiar sites. Known for being one of the popular walking routes, the coastal offerings in the south are a peaceful break from the harsh beauty of the north. Head to Reynisfjara on a day trip and see the black sand beaches eroded by the harsh waves that reach its shores.
Witness the beasts of the sea
An excursion that almost everyone has to plan into their next cruise is whale watching. Iceland is a hotspot for avid whale watchers and rightly so as the chilly waters are the perfect environment for these sea beasts. Named the whale watching capital of Europe, take a short boat ride out into the sea and watch as these magnificent creatures rise to the surface for the perfect photo opportunity.
A visit to Iceland wouldn’t be complete without a trip to one of its many waterfalls. With these stunning sights dotted around the country, you’re never too far from a spectacular water display. Svartifoss, Skogafoss and Seljalandsfoss are just three of these wonders. Get up close and personal to the water’s edge, even walk behind the flow of water as it cascades down for a photographic angle like no other.
