Iceland is one of the world’s most beautiful destinations and one of the most popular ones at that. But why is this the case? Sure, it may be gorgeous on paper, but it can also be freezing during most months of the year. If you’re wondering why you should go to Iceland, and what to do there if you go through with it, here are three activities that’ll make your stay there an absolute blast.

Northern Lights

The Northern lights can be seen from a few different countries, and Iceland is one of them. It’s hard to imagine visiting this destination and not going out of your way to see the Northern lights because it’s a sight that you’ll never forget for the rest of your life.

Ice Caves

If you’re looking to experience a magical winter wonderland that looks right out of a fairytale, make sure you check out the ice caves. It looks so incredible that it doesn’t even look real, and yet it is. The winter is the best time to experience these sculpted glaciers, so make sure you go around then.

Hot Springs

Finally, one of the most popular things to do in Iceland is to bask in some toasty hot springs. There are many you can go to, and some are better than others, but you really can’t go wrong. With such a cold temperature, nothing beats relaxing in these hot springs on a cool Iceland afternoon.
