The nature of Iceland is the main treasure of the country. Its peculiar beauty is in a marked contrast to the colorful tropics of Asia, sun-tempered canyons of America, lush greenery of Australia, or sunlit forests of Europe.

Iceland magnetizes you like a beautiful enigmatic woman, who is in no hurry to reveal her innermost mysteries. Iceland doesn't show off its beauty. Still, you can feel an untamed rage of the elements, hidden behind an austere facade of the rocks and fjords, cold majestic glaciers and silence of hardened lava fields.

Of course, the heart of every country is in its capital. Reykjavík, the world's northernmost capital, reveals in full the character of the whole Iceland. Though reserved and cold in appearance, Iceland will welcome warmly its guests and show cordially all its advantages, from the majestic ice beauties to hearty chat-ins at cozy warm restaurants.
