In one month i am boarding a plane for Reykjavik, the coastal capital of Iceland. After visiting Denmark, Finland, Sweden, and Norway in July one of my only regrets was not getting the chance to see the northern lights but with more than 20 hours of sunlight a day that was just not in the cards. Now, on the flip side, there will only be able seven hours of daylight in Iceland in early November giving me plenty of opportunities (fingers crossed) to catch the Aurora Borealis in all it’s glory.
(The Blue Lagoon from Julia’s trip last year)
- See the Nothern Lights!!!!
- Geysir (In Strokkur) & Gulfoss Waterfall.
- Thingvellir National Park to see the Northern Lights.
- Dinner at Hverhamar
- Walk behind Seljalandsfoss waterfall.
- Skogafoss Waterfall
- Glacier cave hike in Vatnajökull.
- Blue Lagoon
- Hallgrímskirkja Church (and the 360 degree view from the top)
- Snowmobile (or maybe dog sled!)
This is going to be a lot to fit in across four days, I know, but I have started to become a pro at planning these kind of trips. The one big thing that will be different is that I will be driving (eek) so we shall see how that goes.
Do you have any Iceland recommendations?
