Try not to be amazed by the Land of Fire and Ice. Iceland contains a myriad of natural wonders and it is one of the most geologically active places on the planet. Begin your Iceland tour in Reykjavik, a safe, walkable capital with modern art and architecture, such as the Hallgrímskirkja church and Harpa concert hall, excellent museums about Viking history, plus the eccentric Icelandic Phallological Museum. The “Golden Circle” is a popular tour route encompassing Geysir, Gullfoss waterfall and Thingvellir National Park – site of the first Icelandic Parliament as well as the Mid-Atlantic Rift. The Blue Lagoon is also an easy day trip from the capital. The southern coast of the island is a photographer’s haven for waterfalls, including Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss. Continue to Vatnajökull National Park, centered around the largest glacier in Europe, the extraordinary glacial lagoon, Jökulsárlón, and Skaftafell National Park. In the west, Snæfellsjökull National Park contains a glacier-capped volcano. Husavik and Akureyri in northern Iceland are excellent destinations for whale watching, and there are many thermal baths around Mývatn.
