    Iceland is the place where movies about other planets are filmed without any decorations. If you are not ready to pay for a spaceflight, you can travel here. It will turn out a little bit cheaper. This journey is definitely worth its cost.
    The scenario offers you to go on a road trip around the whole island. You will see the incredible beauty of waterfalls, geysers and glaciers, swim in hot springs and hike through national parks. And the road between these places is already a good reason to visit Iceland. In order to fully enjoy all the places planned come here during the summer months. Due to the fact that in some places it may be difficult to find cafes and restaurants, some breakfasts and dinners are planned in hotels.
