Add these five European wonders to your bucket list. You have to experience them to believe them!
Sink Your Feet in the Black Beaches – Vik, Iceland
Visit the southern, Vik, region of Iceland in the short summer months and sink your feet in the completely unique black basalt beach. Stay at one of the secluded town hotels, where a short drive to this untamed beach will forever change your concept of what a beach can be.
You won’t be sunbathing on this beach since the average summer temperature never rises above 55 °F – bring a pair of boots to wear before and after sinking your feet in the sand! Find seabirds like puffins on the shoreline, a volcano in the backdrop and strong Atlantic waves.
Most distinctive in the landscape are the small jagged rock formations in the cliffs at the base of the beach. Legend has it that the rock formations are the remains of two trolls who tried and failed to take their three-masted ship out of the sea. That’s the kind of mystical wonder you’ll discover by sinking your feet in the black beaches, even just for a second!
