Land of Fire and Ice

The world’s northern most capital, Reykjavik, is an Icelandic gateway to rugged adventures. Adventurers can hike some of Europe’s largest glaciers and observe some of the world’s most active volcanoes. It is also one of the best places on Earth to view nature’s most incredible light shows, the Aurora Borealis, also known as the Northern Lights. The best time to see this phenomenon of nature is from September through mid-April. You can even request a “Northern Lights Wake Up Call” at most hotels in Iceland.
