With an incredible range of snow based activities, and incredible landscapes to see, you’ve got to make Iceland your next trip away. So come with us, on our tour of Iceland for tourists: the top 3 locations!
We start our tour with a simply magical visit, to the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon! You’ll find this incredible wonder between Hofn and Skaftafell, and what a wonder it is. Take a walk amongst the incredible ice sculptures, go looking for seals, take a romantic boat ride for two or even follow the icebergs all the way back to the beaches from whence they came. Jökulsárlón is truly one of Iceland’s most wondrous visual delights!
Now, time for some nature! Vatnajökull National Park is THE biggest national park in all of Europe, and actually covers just about 14% of the entirety of Iceland! The park is a combination of two previous singular parks, and protects an absolutely enormous numbers of species and geological fossils. This extends all the way out to the Dettifos, which is the most powerful waterfall in Europe!
We finish our tour with a trip back in time. The national museum boasts an absolutely superb number of ancient Icelandic artefacts, which date all the way back to the first settlers in the country. The museum will provide visitors with a fantastic insight into Iceland’s history and culture. Make sure you keep an ear out for the audioguide on the Settlement Era. This is sure to knock your thermals off!
