Iceland is today regarded as the coolest place to stay on earth due to a number of factors such as the landscape and incredible nature. Even though the country is considered being on top of the global map near the Arctic Circle, during winter the temperatures are usually warmer than other similar geographic regions areas such as Paris, London, and New York, and in summer temperatures seldom go beyond light sweater weather. The country is also endowed with plenty of dazzling and dangerous natural wonders. The volcanoes are still visible, and with the volcanoes it is also possible to witness the waterfalls and glaciers.
