Few places on Earth are still considered truly wild, but many would agree that Iceland certainly fits such a description. Sometimes referred to as the “Land of Fire and Ice,” the Nordic island’s contrasting landscapes most famously feature many molten lava fields and a number of fascinating glacial terrains.
Of course, there’s much more to Iceland than volcanoes and glaciers. In fact, the country happens to be home to one of the most sought-after dive spots in the world and exquisitely stunning geothermal hot springs, just to name a few outstanding attractions.
“Everything about Iceland is an adventure,” says Liz Dahl founder of Boomer Travel Patrol. [It] should be on everyone's bucket list. For me, it seemed like setting foot on the earth for the first time.”
To us, that sounds like a truly one-of-a-kind travel experience.
Though relatively small (it’s about the size of the state of Kentucky), Iceland is home to many, many adventures. But the following excursions are among the most worthwhile and exciting for any and every type of traveler lucky enough to visit.
