In Iceland
Eat lamb dogs! Iceland's version of the "Hot Dog" -Yum!

Iceland is an adventurer traveler's dream. I highly recommend hooking up with a local tour guide company in Reykjavík -Iceland's Capitol City. Recommended by Iceland's Board of Tourism is Icelandic Travel Market. Tour operators in Iceland have great insight and activities planned out for their visitors. Consider 4x4 jeep tours through rugged valleys and steep mountain passes. If that is not physically challenging enough for you, there are also hiking, skiing, and even ice climbing excursions.

As far a site seeing you want to check out the famous blue lagoon which is Iceland's geothermal spa! Also, consider the Golden Circle Tour that will take you to the largest waterfalls in Iceland converging into one large free-fall.

These are the most beautiful places in Iceland to visit:
The Volcano Hekla
Reynisfjara Beach
The Blue Lagoon
Seljavallalaug Pool
Hornstrandir Nature Reserve
Husey in East Iceland
Thingvellir National Park
Asbyrgi Canyon
