5 of Iceland’s Natural Wonders you can see on a VA trip

7 Nov 16

Iceland is nature at its most powerful. Its cinematic landscapes encompass volcanic mountains, gushing geysers, glistening glaciers and waterfalls galore and that’s just scratching the surface of its plethora of earthly phenomenons. Here is a place where natural beauties are magnified ten-fold and here is a place where adventure is waiting.

With tourism in Iceland ever on the up and its effects making changes here and there to the quirks and nuances of this magnificent landscape, now is the time to visit this raw, rich and rugged country and soak up its untouched magic.

With the love of Iceland deep-set within our travel-enthused team, we want to share these 5 natural wonders with you and our top tips for visiting. PS. You can see all of these on a VA trip!
