A quick flight away from London, Iceland was too close to pass up.
After spending some time in London, we decided it was the most ideal time to visit Iceland since we were so close. We hopped on a short, cheap flight and picked up a rental car to hit the road.
Starting in Reykajvik, we drove east along the southern coast where waterfalls, glaciers, canyons and black sand beaches are right off the highway.
Iceland’s wild terrain is unlike anything else and makes for some other worldly features and views.
The small coastal town of Vik, is about as idyllic as you can get, resting on the black sand beaches and filled with colorful little houses.
In the winter weather, the Blue Lagoon was welcome reprieve from the cold temperatures and despite being very popular and expensive, it was worth it.
Iceland is unlike anywhere else and the natural features of the land are the perfect place to explore for those seeking a unique adventure.
