Most of the clichés you’ve heard about Iceland are true: The landscapes are awe-inspiring, dramatic, and occasionally surreal. The people are open, friendly, and speak amazingly good English. And the booze can be quite expensive. Thanks to the presence of the coast-hugging Ring Road, it’s easy to get around to most of the sights, though nature lovers will certainly want to enjoy hikes through the interior and perhaps a bit of glacier climbing (or husky sledging). Even if you don’t get any further than the trendy, high-tech capital of Reykjavik, you’ll be guaranteed a fun and memorable time.
