Iceland
The Essential
Volcanoes, geysers, glaciers and lunar landscapes - Iceland is a country unlike any other on earth!
When you travel across this volcanic island, you take part in a larger than life geology lesson on a 360° screen: the rainbow-coloured icebergs of Jökulsárlón, orange mountains of Landmannalaugar, snow-capped peak of Snæfellsjökull, green and blue lake landscapes of Mývatn and Langisjór...
So, on your marks, get ready, go - be it to the hot spring waters of the Blue Lagoon, to the lava tunnels of Surtshellir cave, or to explore Askja, an active volcano with magical lakes. Observing the whales at Húsavík, the seals at Vatnsnes and the mackerel off the cliffs of Látrabjarg are always popular with families. A host of thrills awaits you on the precipice of the craters of Lakagígar that stretch out almost infinitely or at the spectacular falls of Dettifoss and Gullfoss.
In between two stunning excursions, save time for Reykjavík, the lively, party-loving capital with its multi-coloured houses and welcoming cafés.

A trip to Iceland: what to see in 4 days?

The volcanic island of Iceland is paradise for geologists, volcanologists, photographers and nature lovers. Its position, astride the Mid-Atlantic ridge and on a hotspot, the Iceland plume, led to the island’s formation. It is possible to see the drifting of the continents in real time and observe all manner of volcanic edifices, geysers, hot springs and fumaroles, as well as explore lava tunnels and embark on your very own Journey to the Centre of the Earth.
