Fire and ice and all things nice… Discover Iceland!

Iceland, a country of extreme contrasts

Iceland is a country of extreme contrasts. Widely known as “The Land of Fire and Ice”, it is home to both some of the largest glaciers in Europe, and some of the most active volcanoes in the world. Iceland is also the land of light and darkness, where long summer days with near 24-hours of sunlight are offset by short winter days.

Go to Gourmet Heaven: the Pearl is one of Reykyavik’s most striking buildings, a futuristic structure made of glass and steel.

Look up the lights:with friendly local guides and everyone gets cups of warming hot chocolate, their photo taken under the lights, and a look at the stars through a telescope.

The Blue Lagoon is an oasis relaxation and probably the most famous touristic attraction.

Antique markets, second-hand shops, amazing gardens, architecture, museums, extraordinary food shops and amazing tea culture. Due to festivals and international events accommodation is quite expensive even though with many offers.
