Scandinavia - Iceland (Chapter)
This is the Iceland chapter from Lonely Planet's Scandinavia guidebook.
Geysers gush, mudpots gloop, sulphurous clouds puff from fissures and glaciers grind great pathways through the mountains... Experience the full weirdness of Icelandic nature by bathing in turquoise pools, kayaking under the midnight sun or crunching across a dazzling-white ice cap.
- hike from Þórsmörk to Skógar and see the lava formed in the 2010 Eyjafjallajökull eruptions
- don crampons for an easy but exhilarating glacier walk at glorious Skaftafell
- tour the smouldering volcanic wastelands of Krafla
- restaurants & accommodation
