Iceland, which is termed the favorite country of some people and top the bucket list of many only managed to thrill my expectation. Relaxing on the volcanically active hot spots, Iceland is blessed with jaw-dropping awesome scenery to feast one’s eyes. The only shortcoming is the unpredictable weather that evolves continuously every hour, even in the summertime.
All through the year, we can enjoy activities to our taste. The cold winter with minimum daylight is the desired time that most travellers chose to go out for the hunting of the northern lights and the icy winter is the best time for a trip to the island to get dazzled by the white snow landscape across the lowlands and the highlands.
During summer, nature takes on a different look, as the mercury hits the most comfortable warmth, with more greenery blooms to its most perfect light. Glaciers, waterfalls, lava fields, volcanoes are renewed for an easier outdoor recreation across the island.
Several tourists congregate around the south of the island; this area is crucial for a first timer to get acquainted, and close with Iceland as it entails some of the country’s most iconic landscapes, no doubt, many of the compelling views appear prominently on postcards in the souvenir shops. The coastline in renowned for its natural wonders and well decorated with many pleasant small cities along the coast.
Conversely, north of Iceland also comprises of some of the best surprises like the rugged mountains, green valleys among others. This gives me a lot of different vibes from the south home to the Europe’s most powerful Dettifoss waterfall, and manages to give a glimpse of the less well-known rustic Iceland. Cruising in your personal car is a great way to have a flexible exploration of the region rather than relying on the tour excursions or public buses.
