Despite misconceptions surrounding the name, Iceland is not in fact a floating iceberg. With a similar climate to other Northern European countries, the majority of Iceland's landscape is actually made up of mountains and volcanoes. Understandably then, much of Iceland's tourist appeal stems from its natural beauty and plethora of outdoor activities. Some of the most popular locations include visits to nearby icebergs, waterfalls, and beaches at Skogafoss, Gullfoss, and Jokulsarlon Lagoon. The Blue Lagoon spa in the center of Reykjavik is the most famous location to sit back and treat yourself to a relaxing day in the geothermal spa. If you find yourself visiting between September and April, make sure to look up into the sky and take in the natural colorful phenomenon of the Northern Lights.
