Iceland, the country of fire and ice, has risen to prominence as one of the world's most popular holiday destinations, attracting not just thrill-seekers but also environment lovers wanting something new. Active volcanoes, geysers, hot springs, glaciers, ice fields, and fjords may all be found here, as this sparsely populated country stands atop one of the world's most volcanically active locations, near the edge of the Arctic Circle.
Volcanoes and other seismic activity have changed areas of the nation on a regular basis. Surtsey, a new island off the south coast, sprang from the sea in 1963. Icelanders, on the other hand, have taken advantage of the geological chaos by using geothermal energy to heat their houses and businesses, as well as to improve their leisure time.
As a result, the air is crystal clear, and the harsh, unspoilt landscapes are still ready for exploration and remarkable adventures. One method to see Iceland is on your own with a rental car for a few days to a week, including a trip around the nation on the Ring Road, which circles the country in a complete circle.
Tours that may take you to the best spots to see the Northern Lights, ATV trekking through lava fields, and day trips from Reykjavik to visit some of Iceland's most breathtaking natural beauty, such as the Blue Lagoon and waterfalls, are another way to plan your journey in Iceland.
