ICELAND TAILOR-MADE TRAVEL
Iceland is located in the North Atlantic Ocean. The island is volcanically and geologically active, and is characterized by sand and lava fields, mountains and glaciers, and northern lights. It has even been dubbed the Land of Ice and Fire because of its numerous glaciers.
The power of nature is extraordinary, where prosaic elements turn into exceptional experiences; a dip in a pool becomes a soak in a geothermal lagoon, a quiet night of camping turns into front-row seats to the incredible Northern Lights or the Midnight Sun, and a simple hike becomes a scenic trek across glittering glaciers. Iceland is a great destination to admire the Aurora Borealis phenomenon, where the different colors dance together in the sky and are a wonderful sight to your eyes.
Further natural wonders include the black pebble beaches of the South, the highlands in the central part of the island and the Þingvellir National Park. Iceland possesses a symphony of elements, where mighty forces and a supercharged splendor shape its land: ice-covered volcanoes rumble in the background, geysers gush, and glaciers are as impressive as ever.
Wildlife watching in Iceland is another reason to visit the country. The ocean around the island provides ideal living conditions for over twenty species of whales, which has made it Europe’s whale watching capital. Another exceptional animal of Iceland is the Icelandic horse which played a key role in the cultural and historical development of the nation.
Although Iceland is famed for its spectacular natural beauty and wildlife, there is so much more to discover through its cultural richness in areas of literacy, live music, cheerfulness of its inhabitants, and culinary delights. Indeed, the Icelandic kitchen is a modern reflection of the gastronomic traditions of their forefathers, which was based on fishing, farming and gathering on a volcanic island. Advances in technologies and having dared to embrace the freedom of the imagination while remaining faithful to tradition have helped Icelandic chefs to produce exceptional dishes and to establish themselves within a new unique sphere famous as the New Nordic Cuisine. An absolute must-try!
