Icelandic nature is unspoilt, exotic and mystical with its spouting geysers, active volcanoes, tumbling waterfalls, towering mountains, vast lava plains and magical lakes. Iceland’s fjords, glaciers and highland plains present visitors with some of the most beautiful and enchanting places they will ever see, as well as a rare feeling of utter tranquility.
Iceland supports a surprisingly diverse Nordic flora and fauna and is an ideal place for birdwatching enthusiasts, while also offering some of the world’s best whale watching destinations.
