It seems that nearly everyone I talk to has either been or wants to desperately visit this small island in the North Atlantic. Thanks to social media most of us have been submerged by the stunning landscape of Iceland, and is now on most bucket lists of places to visit. So much so the number of foreign visitors exceeded 2,000,000 at the end of 2017. There’s just something mystical about Iceland, something that grabs a hold of our collective travel souls and refuses to let go. After my first visit there this year I am already plotting my return visit; the allure is just too strong & there is so much to see. Add to that the fact it’s a short and easy flight from the UK with no time difference it really is the perfect destination for a quick getaway (if you’re not a sun seeking soul). It truly is a place of natural phenomena, of which will make you appreciate even more the green & blue marble spinning around in the universe we call home. I thoroughly enjoyed all of the narrative tours where I learned so much about this mystical place so I have sourced some weird & wonderful facts about Iceland I’d love to share with you all!
