Travel To Iceland For An Unforgettable Experience

By Cathy Mercer

People enjoy vacationing, for many different reasons, and for most it includes a lot of sun and some inviting beaches. For others, it’s a matter of blending that suntanning and swimming with history and culture. It’s about seeing the world at its best, beyond beaches. One way to do this is to travel to Iceland, as it can provide the mind, the eyes, and the soul with unforgettable pleasures.

The Nordic country is situated very far north, and in fact, its capital is the most northern of all world capitals. This island is actually resting right where the Arctic and Atlantic oceans meet. It has the smallest population, with about 320,000 citizens, most of which live in the southwestern region. What’s most interesting about this European country is that it is actually active volcanically speaking.

Don’t be fooled by its location with regards to its climate. In fact, thanks to the Gulf Stream, it has a temperate climate with temperatures very close to the freezing point and rarely colder. It has a rich history that began in 874 AD, and it has seen good and bad days. Just recently, it survived an economic crisis, but it is now one of the most prosperous countries in the world.

Thankfully, for anyone wanting to visit Iceland, English, though not an official language, is widely spoken and understood by all its citizens. So, there isn’t much stress in trying to communicate with the natives. This also helps visitors get a better understanding of the people and the place, with all its raw beauty and differences.

It has an inner plateau with lava fields and sands, mountains and glaciers. It has glacial rivers that flow through its lowlands and on occasion, polar bears that visit from Greenland. There are none actually living on the island. Of course, no matter how temperate the climate, there won’t be much swimming in the ocean going on because it is chilly nonetheless, but they did come up with solutions.

For instance, these innovative people have used the renewable energies and have created over 170 geothermal outdoor swimming pools. Besides things like this, be sure to take some time to visit the beautiful glacier lagoon and possibly even go on an unforgettable Icelandic horse riding tour. But there’s so much more than that!

Visiting this country means experiencing things that one possibly never thought of before. Because this place is so different, and so breathtaking, it will leave anyone utterly amazed. It begins with the geysers that shoot water into the sky and provide heat, hot water and electricity for all the residents.

For some more activities, taken some whale watching or perhaps go diving in its glorious waters. It doesn’t have to be a relaxing or sightseeing tour as there are lots of action-packed activities to take part in as well. For example, enjoy a rigorous hike or bike ride through the mountains, or go skiing or river rafting. Travel to Iceland is never boring, and to the contrary, is full of excitement.
