Iceland has never been so hot. Let The Rough Guide to Iceland be your companion when planning a trip to this unspoiled country--from the party capital, Reykjavík, with its white nights and northern lights, to the vast glaciers of the uninhabited interior. Come eye to eye with the giants of the sea on a whale watching tour or take a dip in the geothermal hot springs of the Blue Lagoon: Iceland is Europe's most unusual destination. This complete travel guide for Iceland includes full-color pictures to inspire your travels through this vivid country of lava fields and bubbling mud pools, detailed maps to help you find your way, and expert background information on everything from smorgasbords to sagas. The Rough Guide to Iceland also includes detailed listings of the best hotels, restaurants, bars, and shops for all budgets.
