Iceland is an island born of fire and ice with white glaciers, black beaches and green meadows: a land of geysers, waterfalls and volcanoes.
Reykjavik is set amid a fascinating landscape, a metropolis on the outermost edge of civilization and the world’s northernmost capital city.
A little outside the city is an attraction that is a meeting place for one and all, The Blue Lagoon, the largest bath tub in the world! The mineral water it contains has a temperature of 40 degrees centigrade and the milky-blue pool has been proven to possess beneficial healing qualities.
Southeast of The Blue Lagoon is Hverageroi, that is set within an idyllic valley. In 1929, due to its protected location and numerous thermal springs, a garden city originated and within its many greenhouses vegetables, fruit and exotic flowers are grown.
The small coastal picturesque village of Vik, with its few houses and around 300 inhabitants, is located in a valley close to a bay. The mystical looking rocks seem to protect this place that has the most rainfall in what is an already rainy region and above which the rain clouds are often alive with both thunder and lightning.
Iceland is a fascinating world of water, fire and ice and full of breathtaking beauty and overwhelming contrast. It is one of the last natural paradises on Earth.
