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. Located on the divide between the North American and European continental shelves, Iceland melds the best of the two cultures into one.

Why Go

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