Being one of Earth’s youngest countries, you can really get a glimpse of life below the Earth’s surface. Lava tubes below you, soaring glaciers above you, and continental rifts you can walk through make Iceland a real immersive experience for anyone looking for a geography based activity destination. Go between October & March for the best chance of catching the Northern Lights, or in summer to maximise the number of daylight hours to pack in activities!
