Other than the fact it should really swap names with Greenland (because it’s green and Greenland is, erm, icy), Iceland is nothing short of wondrous. This place looks incredible, it was the site of the first European Parliament and is home to not one, but two tectonic plates – you can actually see them moving apart (at 2cm per year). Plus, it’s 80 percent powered by geothermal and hydropower, so that's pretty damn cool. Plus it’s one of the very best places to catch the Northern Lights, resplendent in all their majestical, trippy glory.
