Be dazzled by the shining beauty of Iceland
The most northern metropolis in the world, the city of monuments and mysterious corners, that is the gate to the magnificent Icelandic landscape full of waterfalls, geysers, lakes with hot water surrounded by snow, ice fields, stony deserts and steaming volcanoes. A destination where you won’t even be able to breathe when you see the stunning scenery.
The landmark of the capital city of Reykjavik is Hallgrímskirkja, the largest church in Iceland, with its architecture resembling flowing lava. Also visit the Lutheran cathedral from the 18th century – Dómkirkjan, the Harpa concert hall, the Hofdi villa, the local council hall with its adjacent lake, the Sun Voyager sculpture or the Perlan water reservoir from which you can take in a unique view of the whole city.
An island full of the beauties of nature
It would definitely be a pity not to explore the island itself. What is worth mentioning is, for example, the famous Sólheimasandur desert with the wreck of the US Dakota aircraft , the Jökullsárlón ice lake, a glacier hiding the active volcano Eyjafjallajökull, Iceland’s most popular and frequented waterfall, Gullfoss or the Rainbow Mountains, one of the most magical places in the world, which is more difficult to reach.
The journey would not be complete if you did not visit the Blue Lagoon geothermal spa, situated less than one hour from Reykjavik. Another captivating experience is whale-watching from a former fishing boat or the amazing northern lights if you visit the country in winter. Do not forget to try the specialties of the local cuisine.
