Iceland is probably one of the coolest places to visit at the moment, thanks to Hollywood’s currently obsession with its mythical-like scenery.
Take Route One, the main road that takes you around the whole of Iceland. There are all kinds of opportunities to climb, hike, ski and even surf in winter.
Best of all, after a long day of exercises, you can jump into one of the hundreds of hot springs around the country and rest those muscles before watching the Northern Lights flicker across the sky.
