With Iceland rapidly becoming one of the most sought after travel destinations we were keen to visit the island before it gets overrun by tourists and see the country in as natural a state as possible. With highlights such as the Northern Lights and Blue Lagoon it’s easy to see why so many are keen to take the 3 hour flight, and despite not being able to make our way around the whole island in the 5 days we had, it certainly didn’t disappoint.
There’s definitely something about the vast landscapes which really draw you in, something you can’t really show in a photo. With the typical tourist spots ticked off in the first two days, we were keen to go out and explore, and hopefully find things we hadn’t already seen splashed across the internet. We decided to hire out a car for the rest of our time there to drive across the south coast and the famous golden circle. Along the way there were opportunities to stop off and take in the amazing waterfalls, giant volcanoes and have a coffee in a quaint town that has a population of about 50 people.
To anyone who asked me how it was I would fully recommend visiting Iceland. The people are friendly, the food is, in most part, really good and the landscapes are pretty breathtaking. I’ve picked out some photographs that highlight our trip below….
