Iceland is one of those places that gets people excited – so much so we simply had to write a blog post explaining what all the fuss is about. But if you really want to know why people are desperate to explore the ‘Land of Fire and Ice’, the best case can be made visually, not in writing. Because even though the capital city of Reykvavik is as intriguing as it is hip, and though the small towns are charmingly picturesque, it’s the nature you really travel there for.
Iceland has landscapes that stay with you forever. Giant geysers, epic waterfalls, geothermal hot springs, and Europe’s largest glacier all add to the country’s untamed beauty. And whether you witness this magic on a quick tour of the highlights (hello, Golden Circle) or a lengthier trip to (hopefully) see the Northern Lights, you’re in for a treat.
We could continue rambling on about how dramatic and dazzling the country is, but we’ll let the following photo essay do the talking. Captured by landscape photographer Kazim Ghafoor, the pictures depict diverse landscapes: beaches, canyons, lagoons and waterfalls, taken in the country’s north and south. The only constant being, of course, how ridiculously good-looking it all is. Enjoy gawping, and then book your trip…
