In this blog, we'll unveil the reasons why Iceland should be at the top of your travel bucket list, with Australian tour company, Albatross Tours.

Unparalleled Natural Beauty

Iceland is often referred to as the "Land of Fire and Ice" for a good reason. Its dramatic landscape is a testament to the powerful forces of nature at play. Volcanic eruptions, geysers, glaciers, and waterfalls adorn the countryside. The vivid contrast between the lush green valleys, black sand beaches, and the white glaciers is a sight to behold.

One of the highlights of an Icelandic adventure is the chance to witness the spectacular Northern Lights. Albatross Tours is a premium tour company that can help you navigate this ethereal phenomenon, ensuring you're in the right place at the right time. Gazing at the dancing colors of the Aurora Borealis in the Icelandic winter night sky is an experience you'll cherish forever.

Unique Outdoor Activities

Iceland is a haven for adventure seekers. This country offers a plethora of exciting activities such as hiking, ice climbing, snowmobiling, and horseback riding. For the ultimate adventure, venture into the crystal-clear waters of Silfra Fissure in Thingvellir National Park. Here, you can stand in the Rift Valley which has spectacular scenery, including dramatic cliffs and Iceland’s largest natural lake.

Iceland also boasts an extensive network of hot springs and geothermal pools. Relaxing in the Blue Lagoon or a natural hot spring after a day of exploring is an absolute must. The mineral-rich waters will rejuvenate your body and soul, providing an experience of ultimate relaxation and well-being.

Rich Culture and History

Iceland's culture is as fascinating as its landscapes. With a population of only around 360,000 people, the country maintains its unique cultural heritage. Albatross Tours can introduce you to the rich folklore, sagas, and traditions of this North Atlantic island.

The capital city, Reykjavik, offers a vibrant arts scene with numerous galleries, museums, and cultural events. Visit the National Museum of Iceland to immerse yourself in the nation's history and culture. Explore the iconic Hallgrímskirkja church, a masterpiece of modern architecture, and enjoy breathtaking panoramic views of Reykjavik from its tower.

Mouth-Watering Cuisine

Iceland's culinary scene has evolved in recent years, offering a delightful fusion of traditional and contemporary flavors. Sample traditional Icelandic dishes like hákarl (fermented shark) and skyr (a yogurt-like dairy product). Local seafood is a must-try, especially the succulent salmon and arctic char.

Don't forget to savour the infamous Icelandic hot dog, a street food delight, and warm up with a hearty bowl of traditional lamb stew. Albatross Tours can lead you to the best eateries where you can enjoy these delectable dishes. On day 10 in our Iceland - Fire, Ice Caves & Frozen Waterfalls tour we enjoy a late lunch of a hearty bowl of tomato soup and dunking bread at the Friðheimar tomato farm. Yes, tomatos in Iceland! Enjoy a mocktail, tomato beer or a Bloody Mary!
