Visitors to the nation's rocky shores will have a hard time running out of things to do in Iceland. Geysers, volcanoes, waterfalls, lava fields, and a chance to spot icebergs draw tourists to the trendy capital city, giving outdoor enthusiasts a chance to see a lot without having to compromise on urban comforts. For a quick taste of Iceland's natural wonders, take a day trek around Golden Circle Route, an 8-hour tour from Reykjavik and back again. For those looking to relax, Blue Lagoon is the place for spa treatments in a stunning natural setting.
