Place: Iceland

In Three Words: Waterfalls, whales, wonderment

Why We Love It?: Feel like you are at the end of the earth within 5 hours flight from NYC; and when it comes to hospitality, Iceland is the Hawaii of the north. There is a reason 2016 was filled with buzz about Iceland. It is a burgeoning tourist destination and now is a great time to experience it. Although the US dollar is weak against the Icelandic Krona, some experiences seem shockingly inexpensive for how cool they really are.

Hot Spots: Northern Lights from Hotel Ranga, snowmobile on a glacier in Gulfoss, soak in the Blue Lagoon and whale watch in Reykjavik or explore town from Canopy by Hilton!
