Visiting Iceland? Keep These in Mind
Iceland, “The Land of Fire and Ice”, is a gorgeous, mountainous island nation that is known for its volcanoes and glaciers alike. The country is easy to navigate as a self-drive experience, so consider some of the following highlights from the various regions for your next summer vacation to Iceland. Take advantage of their midnight sun to enjoy the history, traditions and culture that still run deep with Icelanders.
In Reykjavik, enjoy an afternoon of the best sights like the Hallgrímskirkja Church and Leif Ericson statue. In summer’s shoulder months of May and August, consider a trip out to the Grótta Nature Reserve on the tip of the Seltjarnarnes Peninsula for a great viewing opportunity of the Northern Lights.
You are in luck with a summer vacation to Iceland as the Westfjords are only accessible between May and October. But the extra time to visit this region is worth it. Check out the Drangajökull glacier and the hidden gem of the pink sand beach Rauðasandur.
Follow the Golden Circle sightseeing route with three natural attractions - the Geysir Geothermal Area, Gullfoss Waterfall, and Thingvellir National Park.
Finish out your vacation with trips to the Blue Lagoon, a luxury spa and hot spring, and the Fagradalsfjall Volcano that recently erupted in March 2021 after lying dormant for about 6,000 years.
You won’t be disappointed by the natural wonders you will see and experience along the way.
