Planning a trip to Iceland will not only offer unique culture and landscape, but with the natural and man-made attractions, you’ll never be bored!
8. Whale watching: Between May and September every year, you can have the opportunity to see majestic sea creatures in their natural habitats. Not only do you get the chance to see whales, but the diversity of the marine life in Iceland means it’s likely you’ll see multiple species of whale along with other sea creatures.
7. Landmannalauger: Each area of the globe brings something unique to Earth. In Iceland, the multicolored rhyolite mountains are unlike anything else in the world, making the area popular for tourists who want to really feel the exotic nature of Iceland.
6. Aurora Borealis: Since Iceland is situated so far north, visitors have the opportunity to see the Northern Lights dancing across the sky, offering a romantic, natural light show. The best time to see the Aurora Borealis is between September and mid-April.
5. Hallgrimskirkja: For visitors interested in architecture, Hallgrimskirkja is a must-see destination. It is the tallest and best known building in Iceland, and the design was inspired by the Black Falls, also located in Iceland.
4. Gullfoss Waterfall: To see natural Iceland in all its magnificence, a summer tourist should make sure that the Gullfoss Waterfall is on the itinerary. The waterfall features three “terraces,” and no railings means you can take stunning photos of the landscape.
3. Blue Lagoon (Grindavik): In case you’re worried about Iceland being too cold, a visit to the Blue Lagoon geothermal spa will warm you up! The water from the natural, underground spring reaches approximately 38 degrees Celsius, and the spa services offered will mean you leave feeling truly pampered.
2. Skaftafell Ice Cave: It would be a shame to visit Iceland without seeing some ice! The Skaftafell Ice Cave is a beautiful location for winter travelers since the ice and snow don’t melt, so adventurers can explore the winter wonderland of the cave.
1. Take in the culture: One of the benefits of travel is learning about new cultures and meeting new people. Iceland boasts a rich, unique heritage and culture full of history that will not only give you great memories, but great pictures to remember it by!
