If you know me, you know that Iceland is one of my favorite countries to visit. Here are my top 10 reasons why I love this country so much:
1 | Waterfalls Galore
There are waterfalls everywhere in Iceland. Not only is there Gullfoss, Detifoss, and Godafoss, but there's tons more throughout the country. I love the waterfalls that were in tiny villages coming down over the little Iceland houses.
2 | Northern Lights
My first time seeing the Northern Lights happened in Iceland and they were absolutely stunning! I've been hearing from a lot of people that the Northern Lights in Iceland are brighter too.
4 | Friendly Icelandic Horses
These horses are truly one of a kind. Not only are they beautiful, but they're super friendly too!
5 | Awesome Rock Formations
Iceland has the coolest rock formations that make it look like another planet in some locations.
6 | Glaciers
Most glaciers are pretty easy to access and you can even go in the caves or go glacier hiking.
7 | Cute Cabins
We stayed in a few cabins in Iceland and loved that they were all in remote areas with not much around. I didn't want to leave the last cabin we stayed at in Stykkisholmur .
9 | Solheimasandur
On the black sand beach, near Vik, there is an abandoned plane that has been sitting there since 1973. If you like abandoned sites, this is your place.
10 | Empty Roads
At some points of our road trip in Iceland, we didn't see cars for miles and miles and we had the road all to ourselves!
