Iceland is a nation that is intricately beautiful. It hosts a relatively small number of visitors every year, yet features thundering waterfalls, basalt beaches, and untamed interiors to explore.
The terrain of Iceland can be perilous, but the rugged beauty of what lies before you will definitely take your breath away.
The weather of Iceland can be quite volatile. It is not unusual for a warm and sunny day to drop some flurries on your head. It can be helpful to plan a visit with a guided tour, but also plan to pack a variety of gear so you can be prepared for anything.
In return for planning ahead, you can enjoy unbelievable wilderness areas like the Hornstrandir, a nature reserve which sits on a peninsula in the Westfhords. Not only will you get to see unspoiled cliffs, but arctic foxes call this area home as well. Hiking and camping can be rustic, but it can also be incredibly rewarding.
Natural hot springs are abundant throughout Iceland. It’s a national pastime to sit in a hot spot, soak in the mineral waters, and have a conversation about the events of the day. Curiosity is a way of life in Iceland and being creative is more than just a hobby.
It may be a relatively small island nation, but the people of Iceland are used to thinking big. Being fun and creative isn’t just something to do in your free time. It’s a way of life. Plan your visit so you can get out there and have fun with them.
