Seljalandfoss Waterfall, Iceland

A little slice of Valhalla, right here on Earth

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.
