Iceland

Iceland is, for lack of a better adjective, Nordic Nirvana. Be warned, this is not where you come to party but rather where you come to breathe, to live. Everything that world is craving for right now, Iceland already has. From egalitarianism to sustainable living, you name it, they thrive in it. Satisfyingly unique in its beauty and inspiring in its relentless endeavor to make it better year after year, Iceland is as warm in its hospitality as it is cold in its climate. Start living with a medicinal dip at the Blue Lagoon, whale watching at Husavik, or even the countless treks along Reykjavik.
Visit the Museum of Icelandic Sorcery and Witchcraft at Holmavik or the tallest building here, the Hallgrimskirkja. If you ever need directions to it, we suggest taking a picture of it and pointing instead of even trying to say the name! The stone monument, Hvitserkur, is a sight to behold, rising like a sea monster. Adding to the magic of Icelandic landscape are the waterfalls (Gljufrafoss and Svartifoss) and the stratovolcano, Hekla. The volcanic cave of Grjotagja further alleviates any doubt that Iceland is truly and spectacularly one of a kind.

Dip in the Blue Lagoon - Immerse your body and mind in the healing waters of this medicinal geothermal spa and feel every shred of stress melt away in its steam.

The Iconic Hallgrimskirkja - Inspired by the Black Falls, another Icelandic wonder, this church is the tallest and most recognisable building here. It is absolutely riveting to witness the church in all its glory as the dusk falls all around it and the lights come on to reveal an which is nothing short of a masterpiece.

The Spellbinding Northern Lights - There is something so very surreal about gazing up at the darkened skies and seeing a multitude of bright colours prancing about with no end in sight. Mostly shades of green or pink, these lights are so awe inspiring that you may easily lose yourself in the wonder and magic unravelling so splendidly before your eyes.
