Despite its misleading name, Iceland is not entirely covered in ice. In fact, it’s quite the opposite! Iceland is surprisingly very green and is known for its lush, unspoiled, and largely uninhabited landscape. From black sand beaches to roaring waterfalls and volcanos, Iceland has a surprisingly diverse landscape. As you travel throughout the country, you’ll witness the landscape changing before your eyes as you travel from geothermal valleys to the base of a glacier.
