Ice, ice, baby!
It’s Mother Nature at her very best! If you’re surrounded by healing hot springs, majestic glaciers and active volcanoes, then there is only one place you could be. This Nordic island is full of show-stopping dramatic landscapes and medieval Viking history, it is also one of the most eco-friendly countries in the world, with over 80% of the country being powered by hydro and geothermal energy.
Did you know?
In some months the country experiences 24-hour darkness and 24-hour daylight, due to its close proximity to the Arctic Circle. Even more bizarrely, over 50% of Icelanders believe in the existence of fantastical beings such as elves and trolls!
