Travel / Reykjavik, Iceland

Just a quick post about my trip to Iceland. It wasn't on my top 100 destination bucket list but it was seriously fun. The food tasted, well like ikea, but the people were friendly and I had a blast. We didn't see the Aurora Borealis (the original purpose to go to Iceland) but I had fun, nonetheless.

You DEFINITELY must go on the Super Jeep tour. We opted for the "Golden Circle & Langjökull Glacier" which is a full-day tour (see places below). I loved that it's a small group (up to six which is as many as you can fit in a jeep), so you get an intimate tour with your guide. As an option, we individually ride a snow mobile on glacier for a good hour (totally awesome). The cost was approximately $550/person but for a city where most of the places require a car and is quite a drive from the city, you will want a guide and driver.

  • Thingvellir National Park
  • Walk between continents
  • Viking parliament
  • Geysir
  • Strokkur geyser
  • Gullfoss
  • Faxi
  • Off-road drive to Langjökull glacier

Oh, and a quick shot of fish and chips from Reykjavik Fish.
