Map of Iceland
With everything from geysers and glaciers to erupting volcanoes, Iceland is a truly exceptional place. At the country’s heart is Reykjavík, a chilled capital surrounded by snow-capped mountains, with stylish bars aplenty. Venture out and you’ll find a coastline packed with birdlife, highland valleys offering superlative hiking, bathable outdoor hot pools and even relics of the Viking age. No matter where you’re heading, use our map of Iceland below to plan your trip.
The sublime waters of the Blue Lagoon should be on every visitor’s bucket list, or scramble down the Askja caldera to the geothermal waters of Lake Vití. For a chillier experience, the ice-blue glaciers Skaftafell National Park are truly awe-inspiring. Explore Reykjavík’s nightlife and join the rúntur bar crawl or spot minke and humpback whales off the north coast and sample supremely fresh seafood in Ísafjörður. If you’re feeling more adventurous, try traditional fermented shark or brennivín, a local spirit more commonly known as svarti dauði, or ‘black death’.Find out more about Icelandchevron_right
