Exploring the Golden Circle on Northern
once-in-a-lifetime experience, but today it's easier than ever to
make that dream come true. It's becoming more and more
popular to book a specialised tour to the Arctic Circle to enjoy
one of the most stunning theatrical displays that Nature can
provide - the Northern Lights.
Norway or Iceland to see the phenomenon usually also offer you
the opportunity to do some independent exploration too. Here is
a trio of attractions that you could experience on a Northern

This incredible UNESCO World Heritage Site is an astounding
area of natural beauty and it boasts some amazing features of
our constantly inspiring natural world. Research is always being
carried out and the area is of great interest on an international
scale. The park is part of a fissure zone, which dictates the
formation and geological activity of Iceland, creating the most
dramatic features, including stunning lakes, geysers and
waterfalls. As you enter the park itself, visitors report getting a
tangible sense that they are in the presence of something truly
spectacular. The evident rifting, which has occurred as a result
of the area being situated on the boundaries of the Mid-Atlantic

its jets of water every few days - this is only as a result of the
recent earthquake activity in the country
features you often see in photographs - but no photograph can
actually do it justice. You'll hear the falls before you see them,
and just standing admiring the vapour wafting upwards from the
dominant force of the water is an awesome experience in itself.
As you make you way down the waterfall, the apparent abyss
that consumes the massive amount of water from above
becomes a cavern, 61 ft. wide. It is an understatement to say
that the falls are powerful, as they are far more than that. To
really experience the force of the falls, head down to the viewing
platform that runs right along the side, but remember if you do
this you can expect to get very wet from the splash of the
