Volcanic Iceland

Northern Lights

Not an attraction per se, but spotting this natural phenomenon is one of Iceland’s biggest draws.


When fire and ice collide, something special happens. Fantastical landscapes are carved and frozen over, while under the surface bubbles natural heat to serve as an antidote to the harsh climate above. Beauty meets brutality in the most epic way and, if you think we’re exaggerating, then you’ve clearly never been to Iceland.

Forged by volcanic flame, ash and the freezing temperatures of northernmost Europe, this country really is an otherworldly place. Vast glaciers and snow-capped mountains dominate the skyline, while majestic waterfalls, such as Gullfoss, Skógafoss and Hraunfossar, thunder and geysers surge from below. Even the beaches here are like nothing you’ve seen – Reynisfjara is an alluring stretch of black sand punctuated by towering basalt stacks. And then there are the Northern Lights, as if things weren’t dreamlike enough already.
