Travel: Iceland

Monday 24th June 2013 | Vilma

For a different kind of holiday adventure, head north to Iceland- the land of lava fields, scuba diving and great indie music. 

Iceland offers travelers a chance to relax in boiling mud pools and geysers while enjoying breathtaking views of the island! The exceptional Blue Lagoon offers the ultimate spa experience while activities such as whale watching and horseback riding make for an unforgettable adventure holiday.

The nation’s capital Reykjavik is the northernmost capital in the world and hosts a third of Iceland’s population of mere 320,000. The hip city is known as the hometown of popular indie names such as Sigur Ros and Bjork, who have both received worldwide acclaim for their minimalist pop music with Icelandic influence.  

What most travelers don’t realise are Iceland’s amazing scuba diving opportunities. Strytan Divecenter is located in a quaint fishing village near Akureyri, Iceland’s second largest city. Strytan is the only geothermal cone found on Earth you can scuba dive to, so it is a once in a lifetime opportunity for any advanced scuba diver!

While Iceland is worth a visit all year round, why not book tickets now? The midnight sun never sets during the months of June and July, which is truly a unique sight to see for any traveler. With something to offer for everyone, travelling around Iceland a holiday experience unlike any other!
