Iceland Is Indeed A Land Of Wonder (14 pics)

Posted in Lifestyle » Travel   26 Jan 2018   / 3123 views

Of course, the most obvious advantage of this country is the nature. Waterfalls, rivers, mountains — it has everything in huge numbers.
For example, the famous Dettifoss waterfall is located in Iceland. It’s the most powerful waterfall in Europe.
The nature in Iceland is pretty rough, so the locals try to add more colors to the landscape on their own. This is especially true for the capital — Reykjavik.
The people of Iceland are not afraid of experimenting with architecture. One example is Hallgrímskirkja (the Church of Hallgrímur).
Traditional houses look like this:
Iceland is one of the few places in the world where you can walk on real black beaches.
Here you can see northern lights so beautiful that they give you goosebumps!
In Iceland, you can watch whales from a boat!
The official symbols of Iceland are a bull, a giant, a griffin, and even a dragon! The cold and this funny puffin are unofficial symbols.
The people of Iceland love fences.
There is even a valley of geysers! By the way, the word “geyser” comes from the Icelandic word “geysa” (“whip”).
The Great Icelandic Canyon, which is around 330 ft deep, is one of the most beautiful places on the planet.
Some volcanoes of Iceland, such as the famous Eyjafjallajökull, are not dormant. And Bárðarbunga erupted in 2014.
You can simply get into your car and go across the country. Who needs a vacation when something this beautiful is around you?
