10 Reasons Why You Should Visit Iceland

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.

3 | Blue Lagoon
It's a bit touristy here, but everyone must visit this hot spring when in Iceland. Try the algae mask offered with the Comfort Package. Your skin definitely feels smoother!

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 .

Also known as hot dogs and they're so good! Make sure to stop by Baejarins Beztu Pylsur in Reykjavik and include the fried onions and remoulade sauce. You'll love it.

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!
