Iceland has everything a tourist could want—24 hours a day

The scenery in Iceland is spectacular — dramatic, varied. And as clearly visible at midnight as at noon, during the summer.

“Here I am at Gullfoss waterfall, it’s almost midnight and it’s still daylight,- says Tigl Degrsem, a tourist in Iceland for the first time. – It doesn’t get dark. It is fantastic to be able to see this.”

True, the country is close to the Arctic Circle. But its summer temperatures can hit nearly 80 degrees. And in the winter, you can swim in the many hot springs.

The Strokkur geyser at Geysir Hot Spring erupts every 4–8 minutes. The volcanic mountains and glacial rivers result in some spectacular waterfalls as well.

Iceland also a great site for whale-watching. And for that added emotional kick… the Hollywood connection.

“All of the sites have been mind-blowing. And I am especially excited knowing that

Game of Thrones was filmed here. Because I am a big fan”, – says Eden Lemmon, another tourist.

Also, you won’t find a lot of strife and violence in Iceland. Iceland has topped the Global Peace Index again. Iceland has won each year since 2008, when the rating started.
