Glaciers, hot springs, fermented shark … Iceland’s list of must see’s and do’s is long. Undoubtedly one of the best travel destinations on the planet, Iceland has been topping the bucket list for some time. Soulful scenery abounds, unspoilt nature comes with a capital N, there’s no light or air pollution and over half the population (including government officials) believe in elves. So to say that this destination is magical would be an understatement. But it’s not all about the great outdoors; Icelandic culture is rich and varied. Going back to long before the arrival of Norsemen in 874 AD, this is a land where Viking traditions still play a large part in everyday life. So all aboard!
