Iceland has become a very popular destination in recent years; number one probably being for its divine beauty and landscape diversity, but also because Wow Air, headquartered in Reykjavík, began offering low-cost flights in 2011, making it more affordable for people like us to travel. Today, Wow Air serves 37 destinations across North America, Europe, and Asia, continually and rapidly growing their services.
Iceland, known as the bridge between continents, the land of ice and fire, or the country of extreme contrasts, is located in the North-Atlantic ocean near the Arctic Circle. Its cool, composed maritime climate is often coupled with sudden gusts of wind and rain, subsequently transforming into sunshine and rainbows in a matter of minutes.
Iceland’s classic joke: “if you don’t like the weather now, wait 5 minutes” is actually a true story. This is due to the mild Atlantic air that gets mixed with the cold Arctic air, creating frequent changes in weather, but folks, do not let that frighten you! Iceland’s remarkable geothermal activity is comprised of geysers, hot springs, volcanoes, waterfalls, glaciers, and earthquakes, making it one of the most divergent and alluring countries to visit on Earth.
Without further ado, here are 20+ photos that will inspire you to take that trip to Iceland.
