Iceland — Like its name suggests, Iceland is bitterly cold most of the year. But if you can survive the biting wind and often-soggy conditions, you’ll find yourself overwhelmed by the natural majesty and geothermal oddities of this Land of Fire and Ice.

Why Go

For the stunning glacial landscapes, thermal waters, myriad outdoor activities, and the buzzing nightlife of Reykjavík.
