Located in Northern Europe, Iceland is an island with only a little over 300 thousand inhabitants known for its natural beauty and dazzling landscapes. Bathed by the northern Atlantic Ocean’s pure waters, the country offers a wide range of geothermal pools and hot springs. Thermal baths are essential in the Icelandic culture, and for many years people have been taking advantage of these natural spas to enjoy a series of health benefits. Visit Iceland between September and April. You might see the Northern Lights (also known as Aurora Borealis), a fascinating natural phenomenon created when solar particles interact with the Earth’s atmosphere. You might have already seen a few mesmerizing photos of the luminous green Northern Lights against the dark skies on the internet. However, you should know that there’s no guarantee you will see this phenomenon during your stay. So, unless you consider yourself a really lucky person, don’t book a trip to Iceland just because of it – do it for the spas, the healthy and tasty food, the astonishing landscapes, and for the peace of mind that the natural beauty of this country can give you. Oh, and please don’t be afraid to dive into icy waters! It will be an amazing experience that could heal both your body and your mind.
