#1 Iceland – Reykjavik
Iceland really is the gift that keeps on giving, with spectacular sights and experiences aplenty. Not only will you be treated to the glorious Northern Lights on a clear night, but Reykjavik is home to some very impressive landscapes. The capital of Iceland, Reykjavik is home to the one of the countries 32 volcanic systems of which you can visit. As well as the beautiful scenery, Reykjavik boasts some extremely lust worthy experiences, of which one is top on our list! Located near the Grindavik on the Reykjavik Peninsula is the Blue Lagoon geothermal spa – which is in the middle of a lava field!
