View from Hallgrímskirkja, Reykjavik
Iceland's stark, pristine scenery has been shaped by fire and ice: More than 200 volcanoes and numerous glaciers form the country's landscape. It's a frozen land that's always letting off steam. Its U-shaped valleys, jagged lava fields, monstrous ice caps, hot springs and geysers have carved a rugged, bizarre landscape you won't see anywhere else on Earth. But you don't need the fortitude of a Viking to enjoy Iceland. In fact, you can experience many of its extremes in relative comfort.
Visitors flock to this country to revel in Reykjavik's famed nightlife, but also to travel over lunar landscapes; wade in hot springs; trek across glaciers; comb miles and miles of secluded beaches; swim in geothermal pools; bathe in the mysterious Blue Lagoon; contemplate stunning waterfalls and geysers; and gaze at the midnight sun

EXCITING DESTINATIONS IN ICELAND
The capital city of Reykjavik is located on the Reykjanes Peninsula which dominates the region, and is home to Iceland's international airport, the city of Keflavik and the Blue Lagoon, Iceland's most popular tourist attraction. The Reykjanes Peninsula is a geothermal hot spot, and much of the region's power is derived from this geothermal activity..
The Snaefellsnes Peninsula is home to fishing villages and farms, but the main attraction is the Snaefellsjokull glacier, which can be seen from as far away as Reykjavik. In his seminal novel Journey to the Center of the Earth, Jules Verne described the glacier as the entry point to the Earth's core. .
Iceland's second-largest city is Akureyri, but the area is known for its striking nature. North Iceland is home to Dettifoss, one of Europe's most powerful waterfalls. Whale-watchers flock to Husavik, and during summer visitors can take to the slopes for glacier skiing under the midnight sun, or enter the Arctic Open, a golf tournament that tees off at midnight.
This region (300 mi/480 km northeast of Reykjavik) is known for Europe's largest ice cap, Vatnajokull, an hour's drive from the fishing village Hofn. The Ring Road winds through and around the fishing villages dotting the region's narrow fjords, Reydarfjordur being the east's longest and widest fjord. The East Fjords is home to herds of free-roaming reindeer.
Here, you will find Thingvellir National Park (home to the world's first parliament), the powerful Gullfoss waterfall and Geysir, a hot spot for geysers. (The word geyser is derived from the Icelandic word geysir.) South Iceland is replete with lush farmlands and lakes, including Thingvallavatn, Iceland's largest lake. The active volcano Hekla is also in the south.
