A Guide to Iceland!


The small country of Iceland has many charms but the real attraction to Iceland is the overwhelming beauty of the place. It is quite literally a world of natural phenomena, from the hot-springs at Geysir to the mighty waterfalls at Gullfoss , stunning landscapes of every shape and form can be found at every turn. A guided coach tour could take you to some of the most wonderful places on earth.



 This utterly mesmerizing land is also home to Vatnajökull, the largest glacier in Europe, breathtaking fjords and Eyjafjallajökull, which is a volcano completely covered by an ice cap, which erupted as recently as 2010! Because Iceland is volcanically active, lava fields are prevalent in the landscape in the form of ragged block lava and more smoother ropy lava. Many of them have their origin in another volcano called Snæfellsjökull, the apparent 'passage leading to the center of the earth' as depicted in the Jules Verne (1864) novel, Journey to the Center of the Earth.



Iceland is also known for its natural Icelandic hot springs, the most famous being the Blue Lagoon. This popular geothermal spa is situated in southwestern Iceland and is one of the most visited attractions in Iceland. The warm waters are rich in minerals and are reputed to help people suffering from skin problems. In fact, the Blue Lagoon also has a research program designed to help find cures for skin ailments using the mineral-rich water, which has average temperatures of  37–39 °C in the bathing and swimming area of the lagoon. You can visit and bathe in this wonderful place on the Trafalgar 'Northern Lights of Iceland including the Blue Lagoon ' tour, which will also allow you to witness the mystical Aurora Borealis dancing across the clear Icelandic sky.



Iceland is stunning and enchanting, and the extraordinary beauty of this outstanding land alone is enough to draw you into its enchanting web  time and time again.
