Iceland is a unique place to visit. You may be planning a vacation to visit this island of less than 350,000 people and it would be an unforgettable trip for sure.
When packing for your trip make sure to bring warm clothes and layers. Iceland is mostly cold and you want to be properly dressed to enjoy for trip.
Bring good walking shoes too if you plan on hiking.
Iceland is full of wildlife and the nature is beautiful. Camping and hiking is definitely popular there. If you seek adventure and love the outdoors, you will enjoy exploring Iceland. Just as long as you don’t mind the cold.
Don’t forget your camera and a tripod too. You may want to capture photos of the scenery, waterfalls and of course, the beautiful northern lights. Whale watching is also a must. There are many places you can go in Iceland to spot whales.
The waterfalls are fairly easy to find there. Glymur is Iceland’s tallest waterfall. How beautiful it must be!
There are many birds in Iceland too, including puffins. I have never seen one of these birds myself. Maybe they aren’t as common in other parts of the world as they are in Iceland.
Giant sea cliffs that are there may look intimidating but are thrilling to see if you are able to get close to them.
You may want to visit the Great Geyser while on your trip too. It spews hot water very high in the air. I can imagine that this must be very awesome to see in person.
The Blue Lagoon is one of the most popular places to visit among tourists in Iceland. It’s a thermal pool and is quite luxurious. Many believe it can even heal skin problems.
Reykjavik is Iceland’s capital. It’s really the only major city in Iceland and the nightlife is prevalent there. Many like to go out and stay out late at bars or clubs.
Whenever I thought of Iceland, I just thought of icy land with nothing to do. There is actually so much to do and see in Iceland and it is probably one of the most beautiful places you will ever visit.
