The capital of this sparsely populated country is as buzzing and alive as its surrounding volcanic country side. It is the most northern capital in the world and has nature lying right on its doorstep. Reykjavik gives any visitor a chance to submerge themselves not only in the many geothermal pools, but in the brilliant music and arts scene, not to mention the infamous night life! It is a truly modern city that provides every visitor with great food, amazing scenery, museums and shopping. You can fly down the surrounding ski slopes, visit the immense concrete wonder that is Hallgrimskirkja and enjoy the unmissable and panoramic view of the city from its 73 meter high church tower. Be part of history in the beautiful wooden Hofdi House, and stand in the space where Reagan and Gorbachev in effect ended the Cold War. Enjoy a concert in the impressive Harpa Concert and Conference Centre or take a 40 minute drive out of the city and submerge your self in the mineral rich, thermal waters of the famous Blue Lagoon.

Leave the city behind and travel further into Iceland's dramatic landscape, and see for yourself how the ancient battle between ice and fire still continues to this day, through the immense power out-lets of raging water falls, gurgling whirlpools, active volcanoes and geysers ejecting their jet-like eruptions of hot water meters into the air.

Iceland has been voted one of the top 10 destinations worldwide for whale watching but if you prefer to go deeper, you can experience some of the best and most challenging dives around, as you swim through waters of amazing visibility around the only geothermal underwater chimneys in the world. If you prefer to stay dry, you can try your hand at ice climbing, arctic rafting on the Hvita river or take a snowmobile across the Langjokull Glacier.

At Thingvellir National park in Iceland you can watch the Gullfoss waterfall tumble 32 meters down, or walk between the Americas and European tectonic plates at this Unesco heritage site, the place of Iceland's first National Assembly dating all the way back to 930AD.

While holidaying in Iceland experience the cravasse riddled outlet glacier of Solheimajokull and enjoy this magnificient frozen wonder with its ice formations and sink holes. Hike through Laugavegurinn and endless hours of summer daylight and even more breathtaking scenery. During your Iceland holiday visit Europe's largest national park Vatnajokull and its blue iced glacier, gurgling whirlpools and cascading waterfalls.

A special mention must however go to the four legged part of this remarkable nation, the Icelandic horse. This sure-footed, much admired and immensly strong little horse can not only carry a very heavy burden, but is an integral part of icelandic society and history. It is a living national treasure, loved and respected by all. They are anybody's ride and have special gaits that make it almost impossible for anyone not to enjoy the ride. So if you want a truly authentic way of seeing this country, let this intelligent, people loving little horse lead you on a highly recommended adventure.

Iceland is a destination like no other, a pure and unpolluted adventure playground waiting for you to explore its natural wonders.
