Iceland is a country of active volcanoes and icebergs

Even if you are an experienced traveler and have miles of roads and a long list of countries under your belt, Iceland will find something to impress.

It is a land of beautiful waterfalls, geysers, active volcanoes and icebergs. To see a real geyser is something you should definitely do in Iceland, the Landmannalaugar Mountains, Lake Alftavatn, the mountain range and the Torsmerk Valley, Skougafoss waterfall, very close to the ocean. The most odd part is the rhyolite mountains of Landmannalaugar. The mixture of colors of sky, snow, colored stone, moss gives a stunning effect. Red, yellow, blue, green, every conceivable shade of brown is a rich palette.

The Landmannalaugar mountains are located at an average height of about 600 meters, and are formed of volcanic rocks. They are mainly made of rhyolite with injections of various coloured minerals. On the territory of Iceland there are many thermal springs where you can swim and have fun for free. The temperature of water is about 38-40 degrees in any season. Lava fields also make a great impression. Walks on the sea with observation of whales and sea lions are not less interesting. Despite the fact that Iceland is located almost at the polar circle, this island is not all covered with ice.

But the weather in Iceland isn’t that severe. Golfstrom and indoor energy give Iceland warmth, and as a result, the average temperature here is at zero even in winter. Although the rain and wind are frequent, the weather is changeable.
