The dramatic landscapes of Iceland make it one of the planet's most spectacular vacation destinations. A honeymoon in Iceland can combine exploring Viking culture, feasting on unusual local delicacies such as shark, and simply relaxing in an outside pool heated by geothermal energy. Iceland is the perfect destination for travelers with an adventurous streak and those who prefer to spend their honeymoon exploring volcanic landscapes and watching wildlife instead of lying on a beach.
Take a walk on the wild side with a honeymoon in Iceland
If you're the type of traveler who likes to get away from it all, then the vast open spaces of Iceland will appeal. Most of the country's population lives by the coast and in the main towns of Reykjavik and Akureyri, leaving the rugged interior unspoiled. Mountain biking, quad bikes, hiking, and mountaineering are all popular pastimes in Iceland. If you’re less experienced, join an organized tour rather than heading off into the wilderness on their own. As the seas around Iceland are rich in marine life, people choosing to honeymoon in Iceland will have the opportunity to see whales, dolphins, and puffins, among many other species.
Iceland is a nation built on volcanic activity, with around 35 volcanoes still active today. The volcanos provide geothermal energy to many parts of the island, making outdoor pools and bathing areas popular even in the depths of winter. Follow the popular Icelandic Ring Road around the country, and don't miss the spectacular waterfall at Selfoss in the southwest of the country. If you honeymoon in Iceland in the winter months, you may be lucky enough to experience the spectacular natural phenomena that are the Northern Lights. What could be more romantic than an evening snuggled up under the stars with your new spouse, sipping a glass of traditional Brennivín liqueur?
