Iceland is located in the northernmost part of Europe. It is an island nation known for its spectacular display of different attractions; dominantly showcasing winter beauty first then smoldering wonders the next. That’s the reason why some people call it the land of fire and ice. Iceland is the perfect getaway alternative to touristy European countries. Let’s find out the reasons why we should choose this island nation over its more popular European counterparts.
It’s imbued with elemental wonders – According to WanderingTrader, no country in the world can even beat Iceland’s spectacular display of natural wonders. It’s as if you are looking to an apocalyptic scenario without the threat of destruction. It gives its spectators impression that the harbingers of the apocalypse were ordered to do the supernatural’s bidding but were too lazy to mobilize the tasks handed to them. Simply put, the land of fire and ice is a laboratory of Earth’s mighty forces. Enjoy an eyeful of Iceland’s amazing sceneries ranging from great mountain paths, ice-coated active volcanoes, mud pots, barrage of geysers to a galore of glaciers and more!
You can enjoy unique cultural experience – While this island nation is inarguably a champion when it comes to natural landscapes, don’t for a moment think that that’s all there is to Iceland. Culture is the other reason travelers are attracted to this northernmost European country. Iceland is the home of people whom have descended from Vikings (overwhelmingly strong warriors well-known for their prowess in sea battles). But don’t worry; the descendants are friendly and not as fierce as their ancestors were. The people still maintains Nordic traditions. Based from my experience, you should definitely explore Iceland’s culture through its inhabitants.
Experience the typical transform into the extraordinary – Iceland is definitely the go-to for travelers tired of the typical scenery and day-to-day activities. Here in this country, a simple stroll at night is magical thanks to the ever famous Northern Lights. You can soak into a giant hot spring while being massaged by lukewarm bubbles rising from the depths of the Earth. Watch the midnight sun’s glow for the first time or try drinking Brennivin -a schnapps concoction nicknamed Black Death (its name represents its features). Whatever you do; extraordinary is a daily phenomenon here!
