Iceland is the ideal place for taking a weekend break and setting foot on a European outpost with an exciting, lively, ancient, and thriving culture all of its own.
You will feel at home – free to walk around, shop, admire, and explore. It is a place you could go on discovering forever.
Are you still not convinced? Here are five reasons why you should go to a country of extreme contrasts and endless possibilities.
1 The Northern Lights
The captivating Northern Lights or Aurora Borealis is something that just simply has to be experienced when you go to Iceland. September and October or March and April are the optimal times to see this natural sensation as it occurs most often during these months. It is advised to try to see it around midnight, when the lights are said to pass right over observers.
2 The Blue Lagoon
Arguably Iceland's most famous attraction - The Blue Lagoon is a must see when travelling to Iceland. Located only 50 minutes from Reykjavik, the Blue Lagoon is a geothermal spa which will leave you completely relaxed. If you enjoy the odd visit to the spa then this will be your spa Mecca.
3 The mountains of Landmannalauger
The only word to aptly described the mountains of Landmannalauger is just 'wow'. Landmannalauger is home to multicolored rhyolite mountains which look like a magnificent painting with its vast array of colours, including pink, green, yellow, purple, black, brown, and white. It is not as famous as the Northern Lights or Blue Lagoon but you are guaranteed to be impressed and if you love hiking, then this region is for you.
4 Breathtaking ice caves
The inside of these crystal caves or ice caves is just simply memorising. These ice caves temporarily form at the edge of glaciers and are dotted around the whole country. Just remember to wrap up warm.
