Iceland Quick Travel Guide
With a travel rating of 52%, Iceland is a place that most of us have probably heard of, but might not necessarily be able to point out on a map. For a quick geography lesson, it's located in the far North Atlantic, roughly halfway between Europe and North America. It's technically a territory of Denmark, but considered an independent, sovereign state. It is also one of the most geothermal active places on the entire planet. This is proven out by its star attraction the incredible Blue Lagoon, where you can join the throngs who come here to soak in the warm, rejuvenating waters of this thermal spring. But don't think this is the only natural wonder that Iceland has to offer - far from it. The list is long and, if you budget enough time, you can rent yourself a car and hit Iceland's Ring Road, one of the most amazing nature tours you're likely to find anywhere. Some of the highlights along the route include a series of national parks, like Shkaftafell, Pingvellir, and the Vatnajokull Glacier, which is the largest ice cap in Europe. Iceland is like a shrine to Mother Nature. The big question is - when will you make your pilgrimage to this great destination?
