Fire and Ice
Play it Cool or Heat it Up with Glaciers and Volcanoes
As the name implies, Iceland has plenty of ice. With 4,500 miles of glacier, there’s ample opportunity for guided hikes and ice climbs. It’s also home to the Þríhnúkagígur crater, offering the chance to enter a magma chamber big enough to fit the Statue of Liberty. For an overview of Iceland’s diversity, visit Vatnajökull National Park, the largest in Europe, where you’ll find more glaciers, the Öræfajökull volcano, and Iceland’s tallest peak.
