Our first day we arrived at 6:45am and kept ourselves busy and awake. We visited the Blue Lagoon and it’s not to be missed!
Afterwards we had some lobster soup in a cute fishing town Grindavik.
Then we headed over to our airbnb cabin south of Reykjavik.
Our first night witnessing the sun not completely setting, this was taken at probably 11:00pm.
The next day on the way to our first waterfall we spotted these beautifully colored hills and had to explore.
Reynisfjara black beach in Vik:
All these cool rock formations are basalt.
We came across this woman modeling and loved the contrast of her white dress against the black stone.
A church typical of many that we saw throughout Iceland.
Hiking out to Seljavallalaug pool.
This pool was one of my fave spots in Iceland, fed by geothermally heated water.
This view is much like most of what we saw while driving, single farms spread far apart.
Landeyjahofn, the beach nearby the ferry landing.
The Geysir erupting.
Gulfoss, an incredible three tiered waterfall.
An awesome trampoline at the Skol Campground & Pizza Restaurant.
These horses decided to hang out and pose for photos at 1:00am.
Pingvellir National Park, where the government of Iceland was founded.
Black church of Budir.
Beautiful crevice we hiked back into while on our way between Hellisandur and Reykjavik (sorry, I couldn’t find the name).
The coastline of Snaefellsjokull.
We came across these two orange lighthouses while driving out on a gravel road along the coastline.
Albert exploring an old well.
The idyllic town of Grundarfjordur.
Hallgrimskirkja and the view of Reykjavik from it.
All these spots we found while exploring downtown Reykjavik.
Albert testing out the hotdogs made of pork, beef & lamb at Baejarins Beztu Pylsur.
The Harpa Opera House is an incredibly designed building of glass and crazy angles.
If these images haven’t convinced you to visit Iceland, I’m telling you, you MUST visit Iceland.
