About three months ago Matt and I decided we were ready for an adventure. We did a lot of research and determined Iceland was the perfect place. It is a beautiful country. Summer is its main busy tourist season, but we didn't let the colder time of year stop us. It ended up being beautiful weather — out of the five days we were there, only one day was windy and snowing. The rest of the time was around 40 degrees. We had plenty of layers on and stayed warmed.
Gulfoss waterfall, snorkeling, Thingvellir National Park, Kerid crater, downtown Reykjavik and the northern lights
Seljalandsfoss waterfall, Skogafoss waterfall, Skogar turf house museum, and the south coast
Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon, beach and glacier/ice cave hike
Beach, south coast countryside and hot springs
We had such a great time. We would love the chance to go back one day. If anyone is looking for something a little different and off the grid, then this is the place to go.
