Leading travel guide, Sunday Times Travel Magazine has recently awarded Iceland as being the ‘Best Adventure Travel Destination’ as part of its 2011 Readers Awards.

Iceland was crowned as the ‘Best Adventure Travel Destination’ for its breathtaking ‘lunar landscapes’ and welcoming atmosphere, as voted by Sunday Times Travel Magazine readers.

This award is the third that Iceland has won over recent months, achieving the ‘Best in Travel’ as part of the annual Lonely Planet ‘Reader’s Choice Awards,’ as well as being included in National Geographic Traveler’s pick of the ‘Best of the World 2012.’
