Iceland Highlights


  1. Stefan

    How cute is that puffin?!!!! I love it. It’s my dream to visit Iceland – for the geysers, Northern Lights and of course go diving in the Blue Lake (the one with 100m visibility). Oh and that lobster photo – major #foodporn going on there 🙂

    I’m literally aching to go to Iceland. I have read so much about it this year and I don’t know when I will get there, but WOW is what I saw every time I see any photos of it. I hadn’t seen the basalt columns before.. now another place on my list! great compilation post!

    So many awesome and unique attractions on this list! Like Kaelene, I love Gjáin, it has a really magical quality. I’ve not been to the Westman Islands but your photo is incredible, I had no idea it could looked so… red. Though I should hardly be surprised, it is Iceland we’re talking about after all!

    You’ve just made it go higher on my things to do next – and gotta visit the Westfjords!

    wow definitively some incredible places in Iceland. I have been a bit on the fence with the country because it is so full of tourists nowadays but I think some of the above are still well off and of course, Vik and Jökulsárlón looks incredible even if there were tourists I would still go. Snorkeling in Silfra what an experience

      I wouldn’t worry too much of being full of tourists. The definition of full in Iceland still is way off compared to any other popular tourist attraction.

      If you want to be there with a smaller crowd try and avoid July and August. Also, it mostly applies the areas closer to Reykjavík. The further afield you go, the better.

    I love looking at photos of Iceland – I don’t think I’ll ever get there, since my husband firmly resists going to a place that has ‘ice’ in its name… Here you have the best of the best, I think. The photos are outstanding. I just love the puffin!!!

    So I knew Iceland had beautiful landscapes but I need to hurry up and visit because: Puffins! I think they are the cutest birds ever and would love to see them in the wild.

    You are not allowed to swim in Grjótagjá, it’s on private land and the owners allow people to visit but no swimming.

      Thank you for this information. Last I read it was more because of the high temperature of the water and falling rocks than anything else, although it’s in private property as you said.

      I guess the owners don’t want to be liable in case something happens in there.

      I guess it’s a great place to visit even if you don’t swim.

    Finally I booked everything . You are right. Summer time is very busy . Already all hotels are booked!!! Now just waiting for summer . Wishing to pass the time quickly. Have a question .. Should we have to take European charger ? Or converter ? I think American charger will not work there .

    1. Breathe With Us


      Yup. Summer is very busy! Regarding the adapter/converter, it depends on the device. In Europe power sockets have more power than in US. Depending on the device you may need a converter.

      Cheers 🙂
