The Only Post To Read About A Trip To Iceland
Iceland is one of those destinations that can have a dramatic effect on you. Who could be surprised by that with the volcanic landscape, geysers, mountainous snow-capped regions and the breathtaking large glaciers? It simply is a stunning location that would be perfect for a vacation that offers you something different. Which is why I thought it would be a great idea to share with you some of the things you should know or be aware of, should you consider booking a trip to Iceland.
The best time to travel to Iceland
One of the first things people need to consider is the best time of year to travel to Iceland. But this would only determine by what you plan on doing when you get there. The high season is the summer months, from June through to August. Traveling in May or September would offer breezier weather. However, traveling in Winter does mean that some of the mountain roads and access points are shut due to the poor weather and snowfall. While it may not offer too many daylight hours, this time of year is great if you want to take on some winter activities or even spot the Northern Lights.
Where you should stay
Many of the people that reside in Iceland will be living in the capital city, Reykjavik. So this would be an ideal place to stay for your holiday, gaining easy access to all the sites you may want to see, but still offering you the comforts of your holidays. Wth plenty of bars, restaurants and accommodation options on offer you are truly spoilt for choice.
What you should do when you get there
There is plenty to do in Iceland. One of the main attractions would be to visit the Blue Lagoon, which is an outdoor spa. Giving you the opportunity to enjoy a lovely beverage while you soak up the milky aquamarine water of the lagoon itself. It’s the perfect activity no matter what the weather is doing, and with a swim up bar what isn’t to love. Alternatively, for the thrill seeker in you, why not explore some of the ice caves or even go whale watching. But if you are hoping to do something that is bucket list worthy, then trying to catch the Northern Lights will simply be a highlight and the icing on the cake to your Icelandic experience. This is when hiring a car could be a vital part of your Iceland holiday, and driving in this country is easier than you would believe.
How you can get there
The capital has an airport, making access to the island quick and simple. However, you could also consider traveling to Iceland by boat or cruise. There are plenty of options to consider for all types of travelers.
Any last bits of advice for travelers
The last piece of advice would be to pack for all kinds of weather, but of course, if it is the winter months make sure you pack for below freezing temperatures. Having never experienced this level of cold before, it is better to be safe than sorry.
I hope this has helped you decide that Iceland is a destination to consider in the future.
