Meticulous and pristine, Iceland’s location in the centre of the Atlantic, along with one of the world’s most eco-friendly populations, make it an abundance of unblemished and immaculate forests, glaciers, and volcanic lagoons. Capital Reykjavik is a multicolored mix of  quaint houses and national monuments such as the Hallgrimskirkja church and the Saga Museum where this hardy country’s Viking heritage can be explored. Awe at Europe’s largest glacier at Vatnajokull National Park, wade through Blue Lagoon’s heated spring water, or take in the sights and sounds of picturesque Husavik, a haven for whale watching in the country’s Northern region. Iceland is untainted nature and sparkling wilderness.
