WHERE IN THE WORLD
As the most sparsely populated country in Europe, near the arctic circle, in the North Atlantic Ocean, Iceland has become an increasingly popular travel destination. Despite only five hours of daylight, there are hot springs to bathe in, multiple snow sports to try, and whales and seals to spot. Striking landscapes, majestic waterfalls and the ability to straddle two continents attracted Lifestyle’s Amy Hulley to escape for a chilly few days in the stunning Pingvellir National Park.
THE REASON WHY
An alpine escape away from the hustle and bustle of London and an opportunity to see if this Scandinavian gem lived up to the hype
THE STAR DUST
The Northern Lights/ Aurora Borealis – This natural phenomenon eluded Amy but finally after three nights of trying she was fortunate enough to witness the sky lit up by the spectacular shades of green. The Northern Lights, only visible for eight months a year require dark and partly clear skies and are a rare privilege that few in their lifetime are lucky enough see.
THE WORLD SAID
“Iceland’s dramatic landscapes have been luring people for years and it makes complete sense – you can see such a variety of landscapes within just a day… From the hot springs of the Blue Lagoon in the morning to the dramatic backdrop Snæfellsnes Peninsula at night; STUNNING”
