Peppered with lush national parks, vast lava fields, and snow-covered glaciers, Iceland offers visitors the opportunity to experience the wild outdoors in a way only possible in this unique Nordic nation.
The country is home to adventures for every kind of traveler. Hikers can traverse moss-covered hills or follow days-long trails through the highlands. Downhill and cross-country skiers will find wintery slopes to explore in the Westfjords. Even surfers can join a welcoming community of dedicated wave-riders along the coast. From the mountains to the ocean, Iceland is packed with landscapes ripe for exploration.
