Iceland - A Hidden Gem

A frozen tundra of stunning beauty, Iceland has captured the imagination of travellers for thousands of years.

Best divided by compass point Iceland has a stunning variety of natural wonders to offer. Northern Iceland’s long valleys and fjords often give way to mountains and lava fields. The further north you go, the closer you get to the Arctic Circle, the longer the days and the more imposing the midnight sun. The north is also one of the more maritime areas of the country. The Seal Centre in Hvammstangi is a great visit.

Eastern Iceland’s lush farmlands, sweeping rivers and giant fjords come alive during the summertime as the coast is populated by artists and festival goers. Typical to Iceland’s stunning geography magma chambers and mineral deposits, pepper the eastern coast. Western Iceland delivers the range of geographical features that tourists have come to expect, sleeping volcanos and huge waterfalls just name a few. As equally impressive is the huge range of wildlife and flora that inhabit the western planes. Iceland’s north-western “Westfjords” provide a relatively untouched landscape perfect for skiing and exploring.The south provides typical Icelandic treasures; the golden circle route is hugely popular with tourists with Skógafoss Waterfall, Jökulsárlón Glacial Lagoon and Vatnajökull Glacier being among the typical treasures no to mention the the Reykjanes peninsula and its Lava Fields.

Iceland’s Capital Reykjavík is small but by no means quiet. Famous for its local music and dedication to literature, Reykjavík culture far outdoes its size. Nightlife is not something forgotten this far north as well; Reykjavík has a multitude of clubs, some with an Icelandic twist. Add in some history and Reykjavík is the perfect base for your Icelandic adventure.

Green Motion has locations in Reykjavík and Keflavik International Airport, we recommend a Jeep Patriot to tackle Iceland’s terrain and leave no Fjord or Volcano unexplored.
