Iceland is one of the most unique countries I’ve ever been: it definitely can’t be mistaken for anywhere else (except maybe Greenland). It’s a W-I-N-D-Y rock out in the middle of the ocean, & a trip there can be quite expensive, as most goods need to be imported. But the extra expense brings you into a world of wintry & windy wonder! Top highlights include: the world-famous hot, thermal waters of the Blue Lagoon; all of Iceland’s gorgeous, wintry waterfalls, including popular Gulfoss in the south, & ethereal Godafoss in the north.
Iceland is also known for its epic road trips. In order to get to the major sights, you’ll need to rent a car ~ or camper van! With it, head to the country’s most famous circuit: the Golden Circle, where you’ll find Geysir & Gulfoss, among plenty of fascinating spots. Then head to the otherworldly black-sand beaches of Vik, & past them, to Iceland’s #1 tourist attraction: stunning Jokulsarlon Glacier. From there, continue on the Ring Road, which circles the entire country ~ or, head back to the country’s capital & nightlife epicenter, Reykjavik.
