Iceland is a true dream destination for outdoor lovers & landscape photographers due its impressive, dramatic landscape. It is a volcanically and geologically active Nordic island country of Europe located in the North Atlantic Ocean. With its volcanoes, guysers, geothermal hot springs and its many waterfalls as well as glaciers it truly is the often claimed land of fire and ice.

Traveling Icelands Ring Road is the perfect way to get to know the country on and off the tourist paths. Therefore we took about 2 weeks to get to know Iceland properly by exploring waterfalls, canyons, hot springs, glacier caves, black beaches and of course the stunning coastlines all around the island finishing off in Reykjavik with the countries biggest music festival called „Iceland Airwaves“

I’m Abi and I’m here with the Holiday Extras Travel Guides, in Iceland. And in no particular order, here are our top things to do…

First is the Blue Lagoon. This geothermally-heated pool has become Iceland’s must-do. Its water reaches up to 38 degrees and its algae, minerals and silica is said to condition and rejuvenate the skin.

Gullfoss is an enormous and breath-taking waterfall on the Hvita river.

You can see regular geothermal eruptions at Geysir, although it’s actually its smaller neighbour, Strokkur, that goes off every 10 minutes or so.

Thingvellir National Park is where you can see the join between the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates.

Reykjavik is Iceland’s capital city and the embodiment of the Icelandic culture of self-sufficiency and a keen interest in the arts. For 900 Krona you can take the lift to the top of Hallgrimskirkja for unparalleled views over the city.

Down by the harbour the Saga Museum is the place to learn all about Iceland’s Viking history. You can even try some authentic armour or just go for the faux fur and sword option like me.

About 15 minutes outside of Reykjavik is the Laxnes Horse Farm. Fun fact: Icelandic horses have two gaits, which is two more than any other breed.

Hiring a car is absolutely the best way to experience Iceland. The Ring Road runs around the entire country and if you want to do the whole thing, we’d give it at least two weeks.

Seljalandsfoss is just off the Ring Road, about 90 minutes South-East of Reykjavik. Part of this one’s charm is you can walk all the way around behind it but you’ll need waterproofs!

About 15 minutes further along is the giant waterfall, Skogafoss. We’re at the top of Skogafoss. It’s absolutely beautiful but nothing like what I expected. There are stairs that you can climb, all the way to the top, and believe me, it takes a while to take your time. But the real gem is actually back here. So you climb over a fence, it’s quite muddy, quite uneven terrain as well, but it’s beautiful. You can see all the way down, where the river runs, and it’s genuinely the most beautiful Icelandic scenery I’ve seen so far.

Seljavallalaug is a secret geothermal pool. To get to it, you drive to the end of road 242, park your car and then hike the rest of the way through a breath-taking valley. It’s not the easiest of routes but it is worth it.

Up next, Reynisfjara beach. Well, just take a look for yourself - it’s stunning.

And now it’s the canyon with the impossible name. The canyon is totally off the tourist track. It’s over 100 metres deep and 2km long.

Next up is one of the most beautiful places we visited in Iceland. Jokulsarlon translates as ‘glacier river lagoon’ and basically it’s just where the sea over there, meets the glacier and it breaks off into all of these chunks. Personally, I think it’s the best place for a bit of photography.

Glacier hiking was easily my favourite Iceland experience. The sheer scale of this landscape leaves you in awe. And, the climbing itself wasn’t as easy as it looks.

Only around in winter, the ice caves at vatnajokull glacier have to be seen to be believed. We did a tour with the guys from iceguide.is. They provided all the extra kit we needed and are really friendly and true experts when it comes to exploring the caves.

Iceland is one of the best countries for seeing the Northern Lights. When I eventually saw them, the colours and sheer vibrancy were something I’ll never forget.

So that was our top things to do. Hopefully we’ve given you some inspiration for your own adventures. Keep watching for more Iceland content and subscribe for a new video every week.

Iceland Vacation Travel Guide | Expedia

With a population of only 300,000, Iceland can feel like the most isolated place on earth, yet its capital Reykjavik, is only a three-hour flight from London and just under six from New York.

Reykjavik is relaxed and welcoming, yet possesses a cultural life that holds its own against other European capitals. Most buildings are built simple and low to beat the North Atlantic winds. However, the city is also graced with grand civic architecture inspired by Iceland’s natural beauty, such as the soaring central tower of Hallgrímskirkja.

Many of the country’s most popular sights are within easy reach of Reykjavík. Immerse yourself in the spirit of Iceland, at the Blue Lagoon. Then spend a day or two in The Golden Circle, an area which encompasses three of Iceland’s greatest natural wonders; Thingvellir National Park, the Geysir Geothermal Field, and Gullfoss.

Iceland’s main ring road strings together an endless series of epic landscapes. Less than two hours drive east of Reykjavik are two of the world’s most beautiful waterfalls, Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss. Continue eastward towards Vík, Iceland’s southern-most village, where you’ll find the dramatic landscapes of Black Beach, Reynisdrangar, and Dyrholaey. Follow the ring road for another two hours into the ethereal light of Jökulsárlón Lake, where icebergs break away from Europe’s largest glacier and float for years before tumbling out to sea.

Head north and feel the earth rumble at Europe’s mightiest waterfall, Dettifoss. Then explore the Myvatn region, a tranquil lake surrounded by nature in all its violent beauty. Take a careful walk through the boiling landscape of Namafjall, lose yourself amid the lava pillars of Dimmuborgir, and peer into the caldera of Krafla Volcano.

Known as the Capital of the North, Akureyri is the perfect place to warm up and enjoy some creature comforts, before heading off into the wilds again. In Iceland, every side road is a story waiting to unfold. So come, and live your own Icelandic story, it’s one you’ll keep telling for the rest of your days.

My favorite THINGS TO DO in Iceland::

► Reykjavik & Golden Circle

Iceland's capital city and home to 122,000 people. Reykjavik is the largest city in Iceland and most traveler's jumping off point for the Ring Road and Golden Circle.

The Golden Circle is a popular tourist driving route in southern Iceland, which covers about 300 kilometers looping from Reykjavík into the southern uplands of Iceland and back. There are many Golden Circle tours, but I would recommend doing this with a rental car. Featured attractions include Geysir, Blue Lagoon and Gullfoss waterfall.

One of my favorite things to do in Iceland in this region is the Reykjadalur Hot Springs - A beautiful and unique geothermal river near the town of Hveragerði. It takes about one hour to hike up to the hot springs, so be prepared.

► Central Highlands

► Northern Iceland

Eyjafjörður Fjord - One of the best places in Iceland to see the Northern Lights. Northern Iceland has very little light pollution, so tracking the Northern Lights over the Fjords is a great idea.

Ásbyrgi Canyon - This massive canyon was formed way back after the ice age as melting glacier floods ripped giant divots into the earth and left this beautiful valley and rock walls in its path.

Northern Lights - In order to have the best chance of seeing the Northern Lights in Iceland, check out this website we used to track the cloud coverage and aurora activity.


Dettifoss Waterfall - Said to be Europe’s most powerful waterfall, and we’re getting a unique perspective - by moonlight.

► Western Iceland & Snæfellsnes Peninsula

Godafoss Waterfall - An expansive horseshoe-shaped cascade that’s probably my favorite waterfall of the entire trip.

► Eastern Iceland

Hverir or Namafjall geothermal field - Located in northeastern Iceland around the geothermal region of Lake Mývatn - a vast area of hot springs, sulfur crystals, and boiling mud pots.

► Southern Iceland

Seljalandsfoss - A popular waterfall in South Iceland, and the only waterfall (that I know of) in Iceland that you can walk behind.

Skogafoss - Massive curtain waterfall with a drop of 60 meters and a width of 25 meters, also in Southern Iceland.


Reynisfjara - Incredible black sand beach near Vik with basalt sea stacks to one side and rock formations jetting out of the ocean. Get here early to really appreciate it.

I’m Abi, with Holiday Extras Travel Guides, here in Reykjavik, the capital of Iceland. And in no particular order, here are our Top 10 Things To Do:

For 900 Krona, you can take the lift to the top of Hallgrimskirkja for unparalelled views over the city. The church has a stark design that’s similar to volcanic basalt columns found in the Icelandic landscape.

Laugavegur is the main high street through Reykjavik. It's where you'll find all of the city's best bars, shops and restaurants. There are also several tour operators and a tourist information office along Laugavegur, so it's a good place to start if you plan on taking tours out of the city.

We think that the Golden Circle is one of the best tours outside of Reykjavik; taking in Gullfoss, Geysir and Thingvellir National Park. The whole thing can be done in a single day and there are cafes and car parks in each stop.

Down by Reykjavik Harbour, the Saga Museum is the place to learn all about Iceland's Viking history. You can even try some authentic armour or go for the faux fur and sword option like me.

Don't forget to take the time to wander around the city; it's not very big and it's worth exploring the downtown area to see sights such as the Sun Voyager and the Harpa Concert Hall.

Also in the downtown area, Tjornin, also known as 'the pond' is great for a picturesque walk in the summer or some ice-skating when it freezes over in the winter.

Iceland's nightlife is legendary and although it may be small, Reykjavik has plenty of places to try. Do bear in mind though, things don't really get started until around 2am.

For something a bit different, you can book a lesson at the Elf School to learn all about Icelandic folkelore. The school is run by the enigmatic Magnus Skarphendinsson, one of the world's leading believers in elves and hidden people. The elves are from 2cm, the smallest elves, a Flower Elf.

Iceland is one of the best countries for seeing the Northern Lights. They're elusive but persistence will pay off. When I eventually saw them, the colours and sheer vibrancy was something I'll never forget.

And finally, what trip to Iceland would be complete without a visit to the Blue Lagoon? This geothermally-heated pool has become Iceland's must-do. Its water reaches up to 38 degrees and its algae, minerals and silica is said to condition and rejuvenate the skin.

So those were our top things to do in Reykjavik. If you have any more suggestions or ideas about the things we may have missed, then please comment below and let us know. Don't forget to subscribe for some more travel content and keep watching for more videos about Iceland.

The first people to colonize the islands were Norwegians about 1,200 years ago and it become a major Viking settlement in that time. Its main industries are fishing and tourism - people come to experience its natural beauty, incredible bird life and delicious Faroese gastronomy.

First up is Gasadalur, which for a long time it was the most isolated town in the Faroe Islands. It’s a very popular town to hike to because of its natural scenery and its cliff views. In 2006 they opened a tunnel to make the town more accessible. Fun fact: Gasadalur means Goose Valley.

Lake Sorvagsvatn is the biggest lake in the Faroe Islands. It has an area of 3.4 sqkm, and its located on the island of Vagar, where the airport is. It takes a few hours to hike around the entire lake, so get your hiking boots ready! The best way to see the lake is by helicopter, the only way to see the lake emptying out into the Atlantic Ocean.

Torshavn is one of the smallest and most pleasant capital cities in the world! Torshavn in Old Norse means Thor, God of Thunder. It’s a modern city with the highest concentration of hotels, restaurants and cafes in the islands. You can explore the old Tinganes district where the parliament building is. You can see the national museum, check out some galleries, see the harbor and dine at some delicious modern and traditional restaurants.

Now we head to the southernmost village in Streymoy, Kirkjubour. This was the religious center on the Faroe Islands for over 1,000 years until the reformation. We came to see the 13th century ruins of the Saint Agnes Cathedral, the House museum and a middle age church.

We head north on Streymoy to Saksun. This is a beautiful town with turf roof houses. The best time come is during low tide because you can see the beach and walk on a sand bar to the lagoon. There are no restaurants here so be sure to bring a snack for a picnic!

Tjornuvik is the northernmost town on the island of Streymoy. It’s a quiet village, but the scenery is beautiful its beach has epic views of the Atlantic Ocean.

Next up is Gjogv, the northernmost town on the Island of Eysturoy, the second largest island in the Faroes. It’s a small scenic village with a charming bed and breakfast. We stayed a night, but you can just as easily just come for the day. Gjogv is undoubtedly on of most picturesque places in the Faroe Islands. The name Gjogv means gorge – it was named after the village’s natural gorge

Klaksvik is the second largest town in the country and from here you can take a ferry to Kalsoy. I suggest you pass by Bakariio Jorun (Bakery Jorun) and grab a snack or lunch. They have plenty of Danish-style toasts with different toppings, as well as homemade pastries, coffee, and beverages.

A 25-minute ferry ride will take you to Kalsoy, AKA island of the man. There is one road that travels up the east side of the island connecting a handful of villages. Kalsoy is the best place in the Faroe Islands to go hiking. Or, you can just drive around and snap tons of photos of this picturesque island.

Next is Vidoy, the northernmost island in the archipelago. Here we visited Vidareidi. The northern islands are more traditional, less modern but if you love taking photos of amazing scenery then you must visit Vidareidi.

Lastly we are heading to the Island of Mykines! We took a helicopter but you can also take a ferry. Once you arrive you need to hike about 90 minutes west to see all the sea birds. There are over a dozen species of birds like the Gannet, Fulmar, Starling, Gulls, Razorbills and the most famous that everyone comes to see are the Puffins! Be sure to bring a packed lunch, drinking water, a warm outfit, comfy shoes, and don’t forget your camera!
