In Iceland you'll encounter nature as you've never seen it before. There's the chance to hike over glaciers, gaze at geysers and visit volcanoes. But also you can see seal and puffin colonies on the coast, admire the Northern Lights or breathe in the bright night under the midnight sun. But Iceland isn’t only a country of beauty and adventure. The rich seam of folklore, literature and history is reflected in the tough independence of its inhabitants, who still speak a form of Old Norse.Reykjavik, the capital, is a weekend party town. The highlands offer spectacular scenery and remote trekking routes. Iceland's National Parks present fabulous waterfalls, lush vegetation and bizarre rock formations. Then south central Iceland features the country's two top attractions - the great two–tiered cataract of Gullfoss and the spouting hot springs of Geysir. Iceland can offer a fantastic range of activities from rafting to horse riding, fishing and whale watching!
