Land of fire and ice
Defined by its volcanoes (more than 100!), lava fields and glaciers, Iceland lives up to its nickname: Land of Fire and Ice. Yet, beyond its obviously mesmerizing and diverse landscapes, there is more to discover. Explore Reykjavik, the largest city on the island, a great base for day trips but also worthy of attention on its own. Attractive museums, enticing restaurants and a vibrant shopping district are a satisfying antidote to the surrounding nature. Set out, then, on the famed Golden Circle route to take in the waterfalls, geysers and black-sand beaches of this otherworldly island. Ride an ATV along the rugged shoreline. Go trail riding on Icelandic horses. Take a jeep tour into the interior of a dormant volcano. Share a photo of the iconic Budir black church on the Snaefellsnes Peninsula. Whether self-driving, or with a private driver and vehicle, whether staying in the capital or in a more traditional property outside the city, you’ll fall for Iceland’s hospitable spirit and focus on Mother Nature’s grandeur.
