The Best Things to Do in Iceland
From the steam rising off the Blue Lagoon to the black basalt cliffs looming above the roiling Atlantic, Iceland's dramatic vistas are second to none. Waterfalls tumble, geysers shoot for the sky, whales breach, and, during the long winter months, the Northern Lights put on a free show high above. Whether you're up for an active vacation, something more relaxing, or the perfect tourist combo, Iceland enchants. There's plenty of culture and history to take in too as the island nation's museums—fine art, folk life, and fascinating oddities—are ready and waiting.
