15 Places to Visit in Iceland

Amazing Places to Visit in Iceland

Colonized by Vikings sailing the North Atlantic over eleven centuries ago, Iceland is a land of extraordinary natural beauty and rich cultural heritage. Considered a part of Europe in cultural terms, the island preserves a unique identity. The people of Iceland – the population numbers less than half a million – speak the language of their Nordic founders scarcely changed and greatly value their traditional crafts, literature, and music. And because the island is one of the most geologically active in the world, visitors to this North Atlantic island will have no difficulty finding amazing places to visit in Iceland.

Where you begin your tour of Iceland depends upon your personal preferences, of course. But here are 15 extraordinary places to visit in Iceland that you’ll surely not want to miss.

15. National Museum of Iceland

Reykjavik, Iceland’s capital, was probably the place where the first Vikings settled back in 874 AD, but it wasn’t formally incorporated as a city until 1786. It’s a place rich with antiquity and very proud of its Nordic roots. One of the best ways to orient yourself to the country and its people as a whole, and to profit from a virtual Iceland travel guide in the form of relics and ancient artefacts, is to stop first at Reykjavik’s National Museum of Iceland.

Fortunately, Icelandic scholars began the museum collection in the middle of the nineteenth century. They were thus able to rescue and preserve priceless artefacts that reflect over a thousand years of history. Located permanently in a large and strikingly beautiful building, the museum is set up to maximize the learning experience for visitors. Add it to your list of one of the first places to visit when you arrive in Iceland.
