When you're in Iceland, you get to redefine your understanding of landscape. It's as though a highlighter marker has drawn a line through everything we know of nature. The greens are greener, the waterfalls even more powerful. Night is blacker for when the northern lights appear. Come and see what we mean as we feature this craggy island on Pics of the Week
Small on the map and enormous in person, Iceland barely feels like Earth at all. Isolated in the frigid North Atlantic and forged through centuries of volcanic upheaval and tectonic shifting, Iceland is staggering to look at and otherworldly to explore. The outdoors provide all the action you need: towering mountain peaks scratch the sky, massive glaciers scrape the earth, sprawling icefields stretch beyond the horizon, and gorgeous fjords dazzle the eye. And when you've had enough, head inside in weirdly wonderful Reykjavík and discover how the people lucky enough to live here full-time live.
