Iceland is a dream destination for people who like the active outdoors and cold weather. Volcanoes and ice have shaped the land, from valleys and glaciers to lava formations. It’s possible to explore the ice caves of glaciers with tour guides experienced in the tricky navigation of constantly moving glaciers and falling ice. The Hverir geothermal area’s bubbling mud pots make for a fascinating landscape and put off some welcome heat, but beware of too much exposure to the fumes from the sulfur vents. Finally, one of the coolest things to do in Iceland is snorkel or dive in the Silfra fissure, a crack between the North American and Eurasian continents created by the movement of tectonic plates. It’s the only place in the world of its kind.
