Top 5 Things to do in Iceland
See The Northern Lights
Iceland is one of the best places in the world to see the Northern Lights. You have to visit Iceland in the darkests months with clear skies. Best time to see them is from September to April.
To have the best chances to see the Northerl Lights it’s recommended to stay a minimum of six nights in Iceland. The longer time you spend in the country, the higher your chances are of seeing them.
Bathing in the Blue Lagoon
In a 6-day Iceland itinerary, you can experience Iceland’s top attractions and activities without feeling rushed, and I can assure you that the Blue Lagoon is a must.
This geothermal spa is located in a lava field in Grindavík, southwestern Iceland, 50 minute drive from Reykjavík. t’s been said that the Blue Lagoon has healing powers and that’s why people go there to have a relaxing day.
Almost every traveler who visits Iceland goes to this famous lagoon. If you like heat, you will love the warm body and cold head feeling! I won’t miss it!
Go on an Iceland road trip
First of all tell you that Iceland is a very easy country to drive through. You can visit almost the whole country with a rental car crossing the famous Ring Road.
If you’re planning a trip around this popular road, check out the best stops across the Ring Road.
When you rent your car, don’t forget to buy a protection service for your car that will ensure you against unforeseen events like costly damages, theft, lost keys or flat tires. Better be safe than sorry!
I prefer exploring on my own as it gives me more freedom. So an Iceland road trip is perfect!
Don’t forget to include insurance as some roads are very damaged. It never hurts to be well covered just in case.
Explore Iceland’s nature
Iceland is full of breathtaking landscapes and you will need to have your camera ready all the time!
If I have to choose an Icelandic natural wonder (northern lights doesn’t count) I will pick the Southern Iceland waterfalls.
Gullfoss is one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Iceland but you must explore the island and visit others like Seljalandfoss, Skogafoss or Svartifoss. You won’t be disappointed!
And if you travel to Iceland with kids, the little ones will have a lot of fun jumping between waterfalls and running in the open air!
Visit Reykjavík Cathedral
Hallgrímskirkja church is one of the main attractions in Iceland and one of the must things to do in Reykjavik. It is located at Austurvöllur, next to the parliament house.
Do you know that its tower can be seen from almost everywhere in the city?
Planning a trip to Iceland
When traveling to Iceland you will land to the main Iceland Airport called Keflavik International Airport in Reykjavik. You can find lower prices booking here.
When I’m planning a trip, I always look for inspiration and in this case, when you search for Reykjavik on the Web, you will get amazing images that will show you how wonderful is this country.
