Iceland's natural beauty is the main draw for visitors to this sparsely populated country.
The travelers to Iceland are enthralled with the geysers, waterfalls, volcanoes, hot water springs, glaciers and wildlife - especially the birds.
Reykjavik, the capital city, is best known for its arts and cultural festivities, nightlife and outdoor geothermal pools.
Although most visitors go to Iceland in the summer months, there are plenty of enjoyable and fun activities in the winter months, including snowmobiling, horseback riding, cross-country skiing and of course, seeing the beautiful lights of the Aurora Borealis.CONVENTION AND VISITOR BUREAUS:
