Catching the northern lights is an adventure that every traveller has on the bucket list, well there is no better place to experience these majestic lights than Iceland
Iceland, a Nordic island nation, is defined by its dramatic landscape with volcanoes, geysers, hot springs and lava fields. Massive glaciers are protected in Vatnajökull and Snæfellsjökull national parks
So far in my journey I have never experience anything more spectacular than Iceland, a land of beautiful glaciers, big geysers and very interesting history
Hence without wasting any further time let’s me take you through a trip around the land of fire and ice
It’s the capital of Iceland, most of the population stays here, it’s a beautiful metropolis with nice and friendly people, the best place to stay is the capital and you can then travel around from here.
Places to visit
1.Hallgrímskirkja – cathedral with a unique history
The three primary stops on the route are the Þingvellir National Park, the Gullfoss waterfall, and the geothermal area in Haukadalur, whlich contains the geysers Geysir and Strokkur. Though Geysir has been mostly dormant for many years, Strokkur continues to erupt every 5–10 minutes. Other stops include the Keriðvolcanic crater, the town of Hveragerði, Skálholt cathedral, and the Nesjavellir and Hellisheiðarvirkjun geothermal power plants.
The wide Hvítá river flows southward, and about a kilometre above the falls it turns sharply to the right and flows down into a wide curved three-step “staircase” and then abruptly plunges in two stages
After 3 days of site seeing and amazing picturesque landscape do not forget to party hard like Icelanders, ensure your visit to Astur’s club at the city center and enjoy the amazing night life
Tip- the best day is Saturday and time is around 11:30 pm
Enjoy the vacation and please drop me a message how you feel about the post and if you need any help
