Top 5 things to do in Iceland
Iceland is a magical place and for many, it’s on their short-term bucket list. Iceland offers many unique experiences for travelers and is a great option as a stopover between Europe and the US, or a full-on, extended vacation. Advance planning is important though, when traveling here. Once we get to the heart of what your looking for, I can custom design something that truly makes you say “wow”!
Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) – This sight is at the top of many lists, however, you need to know the best possible location to view this wonder. Thingvellir is by far the finest area to see this wonder. Be sure you check the weather so that you have a combination of dark and partially clear skies. Thingvellir is a national park as well as an historic site. It doubles as a great tourist selection for you to see a rare
vision as well as gain some insight on the history of the land.
Blue Lagoon Spa – This mineral rich attraction is minutes from the Keflavik International airport. There are many spa options available due to the geothermic forces and many natural elements. The lagoon is man‑made and renewed every two days with fresh water. You can easily access the site via car or bus.
Reynisfjara Beach ‑ This beach is gorgeous and an absolute must‑see! With its rare black sand and basalt columns, there is much to explore on this volcanic shoreline. The black sand is lava that cooled once it hit the water and the sand is more like various small stones. White sand and red sand beaches (Westfjords) also exist in Iceland. While on Reynisfjara, you can see Gardar, which is a basalt cliff that resembles a staircase to heaven. It is a natural pyramid and was formed by columnar jointing. There are
many basalt columns throughout Iceland, but this is by far the most exceptional.
West Fjords – Located in a popular peninsula, the Fjords are breathtaking. You need to plan well and leave time to really explore all this area has to offer. They have great attractions. You can visit a myriad of special sites, such as the Icelandic Sea Monster Museum or the famous Látrabjarg cliff. There is much to experience in this mountainous remote area. You will have options that will keep you interested while on your expedition.
Skogafoss – The perfect place for you to get a shot with a double rainbow, Skogafoss is the most scenic fall in Iceland. With a drop of over 60 meters, the view is spectacular. There is also a legend of gold that lies within the falls. Take your chance and search if you dare…
The littlest details make up the grandest escapes! No matter the destination, I make sure every element of your travel journey has been carefully considered and completely customized… because the best celebrations are the ones that have “you” written all over them.
