This beautiful country is the perfect place for adventurous couples who want to fill their honeymoon with activities like hiking, horseback riding, ice-climbing, and chasing the Northern Lights in one of the most beautiful settings on earth.
Iceland is closer to the United States than most people think. A little more than four hours by plane from the east coast (and seven hours from the west coast), it’s accessible via direct flights from NYC, DC, Boston, Seattle, or Denver.
It’s also an easy stopover between the US and Europe; in fact, Icelandair allows passengers traveling from the US to Europe to stop over in Iceland for up to seven days at no additional cost. While you’d need at least a week to make even a small dent in the country’s bucket list of hot springs, waterfalls, glaciers, and other geological wonders, you can get a small taste of its surreal beauty in just a few days.
