Why visit Iceland?

Iceland's 40,000 square miles (103,000 square km) are home to all the natural wonders one can imagine: waterfalls, geysers, volcanoes, glaciers, natural hot springs and even bird and whale watching. Its complicated climate and rugged geography mean that its beauty has remained unchanged for centuries.

The country's immense wealth of nature contrasts with the tranquillity of its towns and cities, where even Reykjavik has no more than 130,000 inhabitants. This, in turn, has made Iceland the perfect place to delve into ancient Viking legends and Nordic traditions, as in its quiet towns time seems to have stopped centuries ago.

Tourism in Iceland has increased exponentially in recent years, and it has become the ideal destination for travelers wanting to immerse themselves in Scandinavian history, venture into pure nature and enjoy unique experiences such as bathing in the Blue Lagoon while it snows, admiring the northern lights and even feeling like Jon Snow trekking on the Vatnajökull Glacier, which was one of the filming locations for Game of Thrones.

Where to start?

The gateway to the wonders of Iceland is Reykjavik, the country's capital. As well as discovering its culture, museums, and cuisine, you can enjoy a variety of excursions and activities nearby, as many of Iceland's main tourist attractions are located nearby, such as the Golden Circle or Snaefellsnes.
