Land of Fire & Ice
Domain of the Norse thunder god, Thor, and shaped by fire and ice, Iceland’s volcanic landscape is a spectacular collage of lava fields, craters, waterfalls, and imposing mountain ranges.
Vast geothermal springs power the spray of geysers, provide residents with the hot water that heats their homes, and fills the warm public pools where locals go to relax and catch up with friends. Visitors are encouraged to join in the fun.
Reykjavik itself is a 21st century European city, with fine restaurants, cozy cafes, and intriguing museums and galleries.Download An Explorer Guide +
