Iceland is such a cool place to visit! I’d recommend going there at least once in your lifetime! I had a great time when I went there with a group of friends. I’d go back again for a road trip around ring road one day.
Here are some pictures I took on my trip.
These are the main spots we stopped by during our trip. Around the city there’s Hallgrímskirkja church, Solfar (Sun Voyager) Sculpture, Harpa Conference & Concert Centre), and restaurants around. I’d recommend buying what you need at the bonus supermarket before leaving the city since it’ll be harder to find other supermarkets on the road.
Some other popular places to check out includes Blue Lagoon, Golden Circle (Gullfoss/Geysir), Seljalandsfoss/Skógafoss (waterfalls), Reynisfjara Beach (Vic) – black sand beach, Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon.
We were lucky enough to see the northern lights when we stayed around Hali. We went around winter so the daylight was really short. The sun comes out around 10am so it gets brighter around 11ish and then it goes dark again around 3pm. The weather’s a bit unpredictable so if you’re renting a car you’ll have to be super careful when driving. We drove in the rain and in the snow. The road was quite slippery from the rain/snow/cold weather. I’d advise going with tours instead since they have more experience driving in those weather conditions.
Sharing pictures from my trip!
Iceland air’s icelandic water! love the bottle design.
Getting our first breakfast!
Famous hot dog shop, interesting flavor… I think I prefer normal hot dogs from nathan’s.
walking around the city, the sun is finally out! They have really nice street art around.
found a cute cafe!
Solfar (Sun Voyager) Sculpture, it was so icy around it!
iceland bills, they take credit cards everywhere so you don’t really need cash. You would need a credit card with pin for gas if you’re driving. Since they’re mostly self serve and the machine only takes chip card with a pin number.
All the stuff we bought for the week from Bonus supermarket.
