Iceland is a truly unique and stunning country to visit. Here are some of the many reasons to visit Iceland.
There are over twenty different species of Cetacean that call the Icelandic Coastal waters home, ranging from the rather small Harbour Porpoises to the earths largest animals – and how many people can say that they have seen a Blue Whale in the wild? Whale watching tours can be undertaken either on larger vessels or smaller power boats. The larger boat means for larger tour groups but reliable tracking technology, almost ensuring that you’ll see a whale.
Blue Lagoon Spa
The blue lagoon holds the privilege of being Iceland’s most famous spa, perhaps because of its close proximity to the airport, or its healing Silica mud, its warm and soothing water, charming surroundings and billowing steam stacks. Whatever it is the Blue Lagoon is selling, locals and visitors alike are eager to eat it up.
The Northern Lights
One of Iceland’s biggest draws is its placement on the world axis and the benefits that such a position begins. The Northern lights, is a natural light display that occurs only in the winter and only at the earths highest elevations. Dancing in ribbon-like waves of purple, green, and gold, this incredible phenomenon must be experienced for itself. Conditions must be perfect: limited to no cloud cover, flaring activity in the magnetosphere, no light pollution – then they have to show up. When they do, there is no knowing exactly when, where or for how long the lights will be dancing for.
Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon
It is, after all, a still lake decorated with a silent procession of glittering icebergs, groaning and crunching against one another as they make their way to the Atlantic Ocean. The lagoon is increasing in size each year due to the every growing effects of climate change on the Icelandic Glaciers.
By choosing to take part in a horse riding tour, visitors guarantee themselves a tried and tested method of experiencing the Icelandic Nature. This is not just the case recently, but has been throughout the centuries, during which time the original Norwegian breed metamorphosed into the animal we know today. Horse riding tours are available to both beginners and experienced riders and are led by knowledgeable and certified horse riding instructions.
