If you take all your travel goals, mountains-are-calling fantasies, surreal locales, peace of mind, soul-searching and club them all together, you will get a trip to Iceland. You might have to add a little bit of money also, I believe.
Iceland is, indubitably, the most stunning place on this planet. This Nordic island country is very sparsely populated. Its capital, Reykjavik, is home to almost two third of the country's population.
Although it might seem like an ordeal, the journey from Delhi to the Arctic Circle isn't quite so. There are flights to and from the capital to Reykjavik. The catch is that the tickets are a bit steeply-priced.
One thing many might not be aware of is that Iceland is still volcanically active. Plateaus, lava fields, mountains, glaciers, waterfalls, glacial rivers mark the surreal landscape of this small country.
Places in Iceland are frozen and not at the same time
The Icelandic sky speaks a different tongue altogether. Depending on where you are and when you go, expect the sky to be dominated by the outlandish beauty of Aurora Borealis or what is commonly known as Northern Lights.
The Northern Lights that appear like colour has been sprayed on the sky...
Winter in Iceland sees the landscape transform into a sheet of white, freezing almost everything; go there during winter if you swear by everything cold. Summer brings out some heavenly colours that aren't readily seen in nature.
