Figuring out where to travel this year? Iceland was included on Business Insider’s list of “14 Places You Should Plan To Visit In 2014!”
From Tokyo, the site of the 2020 Olympic Games, to Cuba, where Beyonce and Jay-Z vacationed in April, the list features countries all over the world. Read on to see what Business Insider had to say about Iceland.
Since its economy collapsed back in 2008, Iceland has been slowly rebuilding itself and today it stands as one of the most exciting tourist destinations in Europe.
In Reykjavik, the country’s capital, there’s the impressive new Harpa Concert Hall that won the prestigious Mies van der Rohe Award, edgy restaurants that serve fresh local fare, and hopping bars and clubs. There’s also the Aurora Reykjavikík, a new interactive museum that recreates the Northern Lights, and the Blue Lagoon, a gorgeous geothermal spa, which remains one of the most-visited places in Iceland — for good reason.
Icelandair regularly offers great deals that encourage people to stop over in Reykjavik before heading on to other European destinations.
