Iceland is closer than you think and far stranger than you imagine, visit Iceland for one of the most amazing experiences of your life.
Over the millennia, glaciers, erosion and the tectonic movement of the Earth’s crust have helped to shape the landscape.
Spring is the time when the sun climbs higher, warming up the earth and all living things. Green vegetation turns red, yellow or brown, resulting in picturesquely colourful landscapes.
Winter is the time of amazing contrasts. Peaceful white snow accentuates the black lava fields, resulting in magical artistry. On winter evenings the blackness of the sky may be suddenly disturbed by dancing, flickering veils of light, in green, white or red, for the northern lights are often visible in cold, clear weather.
Many places in Iceland are a paradise for bird-watchers. Látrabjarg in the West Fjords is the largest birdcliff known in the world.
Iceland is among the 10 best destinations worldwide for whale watching — large groups of killer whales, mink whales and dolphins can be sighted in the harbour and just off-shore in the Grundarfjord and Kolgrafarfjord on the north coast of the Snaefellsnes peninsula.
