Set astride the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, Iceland is a beautiful island nation where magnificent glaciers and geothermal hot springs coexist. The country’s rugged natural landscapes are tempered by the earnest welcome Icelanders offer visitors. Reykjavik will steal your heart with its lovely cafes, museums, and parks. From here you can strike out to explore beautiful volcanic valleys as deep magma pools force water skyward in powerful geysers. The rich waters in the North Atlantic are home to humpback and blue wales. Watch orcas hunt seals while puffins nest in the buffs overhead. When you visit, you will quickly learn that contrary to its name, Iceland is a mighty land of lush green and warm smiles.
