12 Crazy but cool things you can see in Iceland
Iceland is known as the Land of Fire and Ice, due to the fact that it’s been shaped and carved by both volcanoes AND glaciers. This unique combination has made Iceland’s landscape otherworldly.
Which is probably why Iceland has become such a hot travel destination; it’s just so different from anywhere else.
If you’re planning a trip to Iceland anytime soon, here are just a few of the crazy-but-so-incredibly-cool things that you can expect to find there:
Iceland’s volcanic past (and present) means that you won’t find white sand on any of its wild beaches; instead, you’ll find either a thick layer of fine volcanic ash, or sea-smoothed shards of lava rock. These black beaches are certainly striking, but I wouldn’t recommend swimming at many of them – the currents can be extremely dangerous!
