Visiting Iceland in 2021
As one of the least densely populated countries in the world, Iceland is the perfect getaway for guests looking for wide, open spaces and few crowds.
Explore the beautiful Golden Circle sightseeing route or discover the wonders of Iceland’s South Coast. You can explore the tiny town of Húsavík, made famous in Will Ferrell’s Eurovision Movie, or visit the volcanic island of Vestmannaeyjar.
Iceland is also the perfect place for those looking for adventure. Here, you can snowmobile on top of a glacier or swim between tectonic plates on a snorkelling tour. Icelanders also know how to relax, and you will find many geothermal spas dotted around the country.
On one day, you can explore the newly formed lava field on the Reykjanes Peninsula (or even visit the volcano if it is still erupting when you come). And the next day, step inside a natural ice cave in a glacier. This is, after all, the Land of Fire and Ice.
