Things to do while in Iceland

Iceland is a magical country that is full of natural wonders and stunning landscapes. Here are some of the top things to do while travelling in Iceland.

- Visit the Blue Lagoon: The Blue Lagoon is a geothermal spa that is located in a lava field on the Reykjanes Peninsula. This unique attraction is one of the most popular in Iceland, and it's easy to see why. The milky blue waters are rich in minerals and are said to have healing properties. The surrounding landscape is also breathtaking, with lava fields, steam vents, and mountains in the distance.
See the Northern Lights: The Northern Lights are a natural phenomenon that occurs in the winter months in Iceland. This dazzling display of green and purple lights is caused by particles from the sun colliding with the earth's atmosphere. To see the Northern Lights, you'll need to head outside of the city and away from light pollution. You can take a tour with a guide who will help you find the best spot to view the lights.
- Explore the Golden Circle: The Golden Circle is a popular tourist route that takes you to some of Iceland's most famous attractions. The route includes three main stops: Thingvellir National Park, the Geysir Geothermal Area, and the Gullfoss Waterfall. Thingvellir is a UNESCO World Heritage site and the location of Iceland's first parliament. The Geysir Geothermal Area is home to the famous Strokkur geyser, which erupts every few minutes, and Gullfoss is one of Iceland's most famous waterfalls.
- Visit Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon: Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon is a breathtakingly beautiful glacier lake located in southeast Iceland. The lake is surrounded by massive icebergs that have broken off from the nearby glacier. You can take a boat tour of the lake or walk along the shore and explore the icebergs up close.
