tour in IcelandHave you been thinking of going on a vacation with your close pals for quite some time now? Well, if your answer is in the affirmative, then get packing for Iceland. The countryside of Iceland is truly unique and its uniqueness lies in the fact that it is always changing. An ice hockey field today might become a lake tomorrow and a waterfall that is a icy trickle today may be a gushing stream the next week. The fjords can be dotted with tiny islands or they can be jammed with medium or large sized floating ice sculptures. If you want to explore this unique beauty of nature, then you must book a trip to Iceland.

This tour includes visits to the national parks situated on the southern shores and you will also be able to explore the Skaftafell, which is undoubtedly a sight to behold. It is a huge protected area where there are volcanoes, extensive plains and one of the biggest attractions of Skaftafell in the Vatnajokull, the largest piece of ice mass you will probably get to see if you do not visit the Antarctic or Arctic. With Iceland being the largest icecap in the European continent, you will also be able to witness the glacial spurs which are nothing less than dramatic.

Another place that you will visit during the guided tours is the Jökulsárlón Glacial Lagoon which is also located in Skaftafell and is breathtakingly beautiful.
