Iceland Part III

Iceland is a country that you will have to visit over and over again. I regretted not discovering Northern Iceland, which is a must for those who loved the other more popular parts of the country.

Top 5 things to do in Iceland: 

(Let’s skip the Blue Lagoon, shall we?)

1. Take a road trip to Hellnar!

Not a popular tourist choice but Hellnar was a clear favourite for me! We came across Hellnar on a road trip to the western part of Iceland. Its known attraction is the Snaefellsnes National Park and it was amazing!

Peaceful. #Iceland #Hellnar

2. Visit Jökulsárlón.

A glacial lagoon filled with icebergs. These melting blocks of ice, unfortunately, are not going to be there for a very long time.

3. Check out the Golden Circle route!

This, ofcourse, features the most popular sites- Gullfoss, the Thingvellir National Park (a UNESCO World Heritage Site), and the geysers (Geysir and Strokkur).

4. Gaze at random, magical waterfalls.

Somewhere along the Icelandic road, you will most likely have a “stop-this-car” moment! I can not count how many times we had to stop in the middle of the road because of a drop dead gorgeous waterfall. Never mind the delayed schedules or itineraries, these kind of stops are all worth your time!

5. Glaciers Galore!

Glacier hiking is also a popular tour activity but if you want to skip that, just enjoy the view!

Tip: Rent a car if you’re travelling for a few days or more. Car rentals will provide you with maps and they can give detailed instructions & suggestions on how to get around Iceland. 

Gloomy. #Iceland #roadtrip

On a side note, don’t forget to walk around the capital, Reykjavik and hunt for the northern lights just outside the city!
