Land of Fire & Ice
Rising from the cold depths of the Atlantic Ocean, Iceland is one of the youngest landmasses in the world’s history. Created from the most active volcanoes in the world and carved by the largest glaciers in Europe, the Nordic island nation rightfully earned the epic title of “Land of Fire and Ice”. Also referred to as the land of light and darkness (an equally impressive appellation), Iceland’s long summer days that provide up to 24 hours of sunshine contrast with the few hours of winter daylight. These long winter evenings are what draw many of Iceland’s visitors to its frigid shores to spectate the stunning Northern Lights. No matter the time of year, Iceland is sure to offer unique experiences for travelers including trekking its pristine landscapes, soaking in its geothermal pools, admiring the local wildlife, and tasting its unique cuisine (fermented shark, anyone?).
