Iceland is a country that is characterized by contrasts. It’s not just ice that can
be seen there, but a lot of volcanic activity has shaped the country to become the place
of extremes that it is today.
It’s one of the youngest landmasses in the planet, and it’s still full of activity. You will
see geothermal springs, geysers and active volcanoes there.
There are plenty of ADVENTURES in this cold and challenging country. Believe it or not,
golf is one of the most popular activities in Iceland. On the extreme side, there’s bathing
in hot springs and trekking to see volcanoes. There are also parts of the country which are lush
with vegetation and green.
Travellers often refer to Iceland as a country of extremes because there are parts, which are
difficult to live in owing to extreme weather conditions. Other than that, travellers love staying
in the cities where there’s warm food and cozy accommodations.
But the most important news is that Iceland has been named as the safest country in the world
for the sixth year running, with Denmark, Austria, New Zealand and Portugal also making up the top five.
This is great news for those who wish to visit the European country to check out the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis), which are one of the Iceland’s biggest attractions.
Choosing a safe place to visit is a top priority for holidaymakers, and the Institute for
Economics and Peace has charted the world’s safest destinations based on the recently released
Global Peace Index (GPI) ranking. Seven out of ten of the most peaceful countries are in Europe.
