Indulge in hot springs

Iceland has one of the most unique landscapes in the world. Not only is this region ripe with waterfalls and glaciers, but this active geothermal zone is adorned with lava fields, geysers, volcanoes, and, of course, hot springs.

This makes this country idyllic for a romantic vacation, whether you’re going on a honeymoon or otherwise. Many tour guides and travel experts can steer you to the perfect location if you want to relax under the aurora borealis. Take a dip if you want to shake off the weariness of jet lag or even a hangover.

Not one for hot springs? You’ll also find numerous opportunities to go snorkeling. Get up close and personal with local wildlife and check out some of the unique underwater features between the Earth’s tectonic plates.

Explore the countless glaciers

If you’ve ever wanted to go on an ice cave tour in Iceland, you’ve found the perfect location for glacial exploration. While most people think of honeymoons as a time of rest and relaxation, getting active with your beloved is also fun.

Glacial hikes are like nothing you’ve ever experienced. An expansive landscape is made only from ice and mystifying blue caves.

Joining a tour is the best way to see the unique features this land offers. Luckily, you can still enjoy this frigid landscape in the summer or the winter. Though temperatures get quite nippy in December, warm summer days still provide ample ice to explore. After all, glaciers don’t melt that easily. Snap a few photos while you get your blood pumping for a memory you’ll never forget.

Check out the northern lights

The Aurora Borealis, also known as the northern lights, are one of the largest draws for this beautiful landscape. Iceland is perfectly situated at high elevations to view the natural display of dancing lights. Paired with low levels of light pollution, this creates the perfect environment to view this natural phenomenon.

Though you may have seen these lights in photographs, nothing compares to viewing the phenomena in person. Take your new spouse by the hand and venture out to the highest peak, where you’ll want to dance among the blues, purples, and greens cast by the aurora borealis.

Go on a snowmobile ride

If you want to explore as much land as you can, you have to take a snowmobiling tour along the Golden Circle. This iconic sightseeing tour is among the most popular in the world, attracting thousands of tourists each year.

Snowmobiling is one of the best strategies to view this gorgeous landscape. A recreational sports vehicle is an amazing way to traverse large tracts of land. This is doubly exciting if you’ve never been on a snowboarding excursion before. But even if you have jumped on the back of a snowmobile, this tour won’t be like anything you’ve experienced before.  

Are you ready to go on the honeymoon of your dreams? Talk to your partner about some of the many benefits of spending your vacation in Iceland. Not only can you take part in the beautiful landscape, but you can explore some of the best tourist attractions the world has to offer. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to travel for your honeymoon.
