In a land of extremes, Southern Iceland is famous for its volcanoes, geysers and glaciers, as well as its hot tubs in the snow and icy vodka by warm fires.

What the AdventureTemples travel community says…

Iceland is a magical, elemental place that charms your socks off. The hotels might not have hand-carved Italian marble sinks, but luxury isn’t about that here. It is more essential, to be found in experiences such as bathing in a volcano-heated lagoon, or eating fish caught fresh that day. Iceland is just full to the brim with exciting things to do and friendly, engaging people ready to share it all with you. We'd love to hear your thoughts and suggestions.

At over 3,300m, climbing Mount Etna is a challenge, but what makes it truly special is the scene that greets you at the top. A barren, black, lava-coated landscape, capped with ice and still fuming from some of its craters. At night you can often see the orange glow as molten rocks spurt out and run down the sides. Fortunately, it is so closely monitored there is little real danger! We'd love to hear your thoughts and suggestions.
