Fire and Ice. Dark winter days and bright midnight suns. Restless Geysers and placid lakes. Cold climate and warm people. Unending white snowscapes and lush green meadows. Blue lagoons and black mountains. Goofy Puffins and Graceful Horses. Fact and Fantasy. Soaring fjords and barren highlands. Still seas and Dancing Auroras. With a landscape that changes with every turn of the road, Iceland is a country of contrasts, where you can journey to the center of the earth…and yet, stay on top of the world.

The Northern Lights

Northern Lights also known as 'Aurora Borealis' offer an entrancing, dramatic, magical display that fascinates all who see it. The bright dancing lights of the aurora are one of the amazing natural wonders of world. The northern lights are always present, but winter is usually the best time to see them, due to lower levels of light pollution and the clear, crisp air. September, October, March and April are some of the best months to view the aurora borealis.

Blue Lagoon

Among many distinctive attractions of Iceland, Blue Lagoon is most well known and truely unique. Lying 30 miles south west of Reykjavik city, the Blue Lagoon is actually a man-made geo-thermal waterbody that offers a complete spa experience for its visitors. Set in a lava field, the mineral rich hot water has a surreal phosphorescent aquamarine color caused by the therapeutic ecosystem of algae, silica and minerals in the water. It also houses a luxurious health spa where visitors are pampered and treated for skin ailments like eczema and psoriasis.

GullFloss Waterfall

Located on the river Hvítá and fed by Iceland´s second biggest glacier, the Langjokull, Gullfloss also known as the ‘Golden Falls’ is the most famous waterfall of Iceland. Because of the sediments it carries, the glacial water of Gullfloss appears brownish and on a sunny day, the water plunging down the three step staircase and then tumbling down two more steps into a 32 meter deep crevice truly looks golden.

Every detail of the trip was executed without fail .Interacting with her was an absolsute pleasure and would highly recommend Hansa Holidays . I cannot express my satisfaction with the travel agency with anything less than a perfect rating!! I will absolutely utilize their services again.
