If you wish to travel around the world and you need some very good reasons in your back pack then Iceland is the perfect place.

Iceland is most certainly a beautiful place to visit. It’s more of a life time experience.
Iceland is having so many amazing and wonderful things to offer, and because of that we have managed to narrow it down to the top 5 reasons that you would want to see when you make a visit to this country.
First off, we will start with the magical waterfalls in iceland. Imagine yourself wandering around these beautiful waterfalls!

Skogafoss waterfall which is Located in Skógar, Iceland along the Southern Ring Road. It’s almost 200-foot and the waterfall is among the most beautiful waterfalls in the world. Apart from this, it is arguably the most famous waterfall in the entire country.
In our experience, we have not seen many waterfalls in this lifetime, so we would really love to visit this natural beauty and hopefully we will be lucky enough to catch the sight of a rainbow at the base of the waterfall! which is pretty amazing once it is there up and live!
Svartifoss (Black Falls) is another stunning waterfall. This waterfall is located inside of the Skaftafell area of Iceland’s Vatnajökull National Park. Interesting thing about this waterfall is, it’s not as big as the other waterfalls but its 20 meter long and not huge in volume. But because of its unique jointed basalt columns which were formed by lava that cooled slowly and crystallized to create this amazing natural beauty back in shape. Iceland is such an amazing place to be at!
If you are a beach lover then you should add this beautiful Reynisfjara Beach which is located on Iceland’s South Coast near the village of Vik. You will find beautiful black pebble sand and stunning rock formations in this beach. There is also a famous Halsanefshellir, a magnificent pyramid-shaped collection of basalt columns that jut up towards the sky. This adds up great value to Reynisfjara beach.
There are so many places that we would love to explore in beautiful and magical Iceland but these 5 places are definitely at the top of the list. Which makes us to visit this country and explore the beauty!
If you like scuba diving then this place is a must to visit. You can dive here and even snorkel between the plates. This is a place where you can actually see the two plates drifting away from each other under the water.
Iceland is having some amazing ice caves. Some of them are like the blue ice cave, that we would love to explore. Caves found at locations like Vatnajökull and Skaftafell just look so wonderful that you would want to experience them in person. Many of the caves are best seen during fall and winter, but some can be visited year round.
