Iceland is a country known for its epic natural wonders: think active volcanoes, roaring waterfalls, jagged glaciers, floating icebergs, black-sand beaches, and brilliant-blue geothermal springs. Unique experiences await on a Globus Iceland tour, including sipping Geysir schnapps, walking the rift between tectonic plates in Thingvellir, and standing in awe before the spectacular Lake Jökulsárlón, the site of some of the most dramatic scenes from James Bond Die Another Day. The gargantuan sights in the “Land of Fire and Ice” will surely leave you stirred, not shaken.
The Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) is one of the most dramatic natural phenomena that can be seen. A magical, natural light display that is only visible from a few places in the world, and one of the best locations to witness this incredible event is Iceland.
Iceland is the only place where separation between the North American and European geological rift (tectonic plates) are above sea level, and nowhere in the world are the edges of both plates as clearly visible than the rift valley in Thingvellir National Park. Here, you can stand on two continents at the same time!
Take the photographs of a lifetime with a stop at North Iceland’s magnificent Goðafoss waterfall, stretching 27 metres across dramatic rock formations to deliver its spectacular cascades along the glacial-fed Skjálfandafljót River.
