From one icy wonderland to the next – Iceland has quickly become a hit with Australian travellers looking for one-of-a-kind adventures. The fact that it's been made even more famous by Game of Thrones might also have something to do with it.
Situated near the Arctic Circle, Iceland requires a long flight – well over 24 hours in fact – but is worth the trip, boasting volcanos, glaciers, rivers, caves, mountains and the iconic Northern Lights. Besides the natural wonders, the island has a booming live music scene, as well as adventure experiences aplenty. Make time for discovering Iceland's Nordic legends and getting to know its lovely locals.
