Whether it is volcanoes, mountains, glaciers or the famous geysers – Iceland’s natural landscape leaves nothing to be desired. Breathtaking sunsets make the ice shine red in the winter months and make for unforgettable moments. If you are lucky, on clear winter nights you can see flickering green stripes in the sky, the so-called Northern Lights, which bathe the landscape in a magical light.
A good starting point for exploring the island is its capital, Reykjavik. The gateway to Iceland combines tradition and modernity. The cosmopolitan metropolis offers visitors numerous activities, excursions and a vibrant nightlife. The capital city has also many modern hotels to choose from; click to book a room in Reykjavik.
