Iceland things : Spend time on Rauðasandur Beach

Rauðasandur Beach is a sight to behold as the sand here is pink and red and backs on to the Látrabjarg Peninsula.

Sunbathing is not really the most popular activity here as the weather in Iceland is not especially conducive to sunning yourself on the sand, but you will be able to go for a seaside walk and enjoy the pounding waves and the turquoise lagoon.

You can go for a stroll along the water’s edge and look out at the resident seals here, or you can take the coastal trail that stretches to the famous Látrabjarg Bird Cliffs which should be a hit with keen bird watchers.

Other things to do in Iceland:

The Blue Lagoon is probably the most famous attraction in Iceland and this is a geothermal spa which is made of heated seawater that is a striking turquoise color.

The waters here had long been said to have healing properties as they contain silica and other minerals and people flock here every year to treat a range of skin conditions and other ailments.

There is a clinic here for those seeking treatments as well as a luxury spa.

Viking World Museum will make you feel as if you have gone back in time and ended up in the Viking Age.

Here you will find a replica of a Viking ship from the 9th century called the Icelander which had the claim to fame of sailing across the Atlantic in 2000. You can explore the ship and wander underneath the hull as well as learn more about Viking history through a range of static and rotating exhibitions.

There is a section on fascinating Norse mythology as well as a Settlement Zoo and a Viking playground
