Best Places to Visit in Iceland

This beautiful island roughly the size of Ohio is the youngest on Planet Earth, barely out of kindergarten at 25 million years old, where European and American tectonic plates are drifting apart at the rate of 1 – 2 cm a year. Volcanoes and glaciers jostle each other for primacy (lava fields: 30%, glaciers 11%). Despite the formidable six months of dark, the people are some of the happiest on earth, enjoying the breathtakingly beautiful dance of the Northern Lights to pass the time. The Norse language is a cool 1000-years old, the climate is never too hot or cold, and they secretly believe in elves. Mosquitos do not exist here, crime is virtually absent, and Reykjavik is the cleanest capital in the world. We can go on and on with reasons to visit, but you’d be better off finding out on your own.
