According to Rough Guides, the Rough Guide to Iceland is your complete handbook to uncovering the delights of Europe’s largest glacier. From Reykjavik’s nightlife to the dramatic Western Fjords and table-top mountains to the rich birdlife of Lake Myvatn, the full-colour introduction highlights all the ‘things-not-to-miss’.

Some of the opportunities for adventures are: Encounter nature in the raw at Europe’s biggest waterfall, Dettifoss. Curious geological features and rich birdlife come together to make Lake Mývatn one of Iceland’s biggest draws. See Strokkur erupting at Geysir, after which all geysers are named. A dip in the sublime waters of the Blue Lagoon is a quintessentially Icelandic experience.

Iceland is full of history about the Vikings from Norway. Eirík the Red and his father were actually Norwegian. According to the Book of Settlements, Landnámabók, they left Norway to settle in the Hornstrandir region of the West Fjords where they lived until Eirík’s father died. Eirík then moved south to Breiðafjörður where he met his wife and set up home with her at Eiríkstadir, in Haukadalur, and fathered his first child, Leifur.
