Things You Wish You Know Before Traveling To Iceland

Hello Readers,

Before I start my talks on this TOPIC, Let Me Introduce - Iceland Travel

Berglind Rós & Jana Maria - They are passionate about Iceland and love blogging! They really hope you enjoy their posts and find the answer to your questions!


Iceland is a unique destination that offers great travel experience all-year-round. No matter when you travel Iceland will not disappoint you. 

Iceland is one of the most stunningly beautiful places on earth, and you will be mesmerized by the clear blue lakes, natural geysers, rolling meadows, volcanic craters and abundance of wildlife. It is also rich with culture and history, and there are many museums to visit. This is truly a trip of a lifetime and you will want to make the most of it by touring some of the top attractions.

If you are traveling to Iceland in Summer season and you think that a light spring jacket or a sweater is more than enough. Then you are greatly mistaken. A summer day in Iceland is equivalent to a proper winter day in many other countries. Besides that the temperature in Iceland can change quickly from warm to fairly hot to cold in just a matter of minutes. So then the question is what exactly you should pack? Let's see. Several sweaters, a light winter jacket, a fur coat, a pair of gloves and two-three scarves along with a hat.

Iceland is a very expensive country and is truly not the right destination for travelers who want to be under budget. Expect to get shocked with high prices in grocery stores, bars, coffee shops, restaurants and any other retail store you plan to buy from. The best advice I can give to budget conscious travelers is that you can spend on things that you think are necessary. I would recommend you to spend on experiences, not on things; it's alright if you don't bring back gifts for everyone back home.

Reykjavik - This capital city is full of funky cafe's, brightly colored houses and great restaurants. Meadows, rock formations, rivers and beaches surround you in this breathtaking city.

Iceland is among the top destinations that are safe for traveling for single female travelers, both for its incredible scenery, comfortable and relaxed environment. The land of fire and ice, Iceland is truly a safe country for women. In Reykjavik, you can find the most amazing nightlife and also experience the local lifestyle, as well as the local music. There are many other activities you can also do in Iceland like bathing in a lagoon, snorkeling and hiking on a glacier.

The Lake Myvatn nature reserve in the volcanic north of Iceland is a paradise for water birds living on the lake, river and surrounding wetlands. In this picturesque setting, the Myvatn Nature Baths blends in well with the natural environment. The outstanding feature here is the geothermal lagoon with it's relaxing, soothing, mineral rich waters. The center features modern, comfortable facilities and a cafeteria. Open all year round.

Iceland is a lifestyle and culture that is totally unique and prides itself on its quirkiness. There is no word for please in native language. In a recent survey, 20 percent of the population said they still believed in elves. This may be the only place on earth that has modern-day conveniences in a society that is both charming and ruggedly sophisticated.

While the social activities may be unsophisticated, the cuisine is unparalleled. Seafood dishes are fresh and exotic. Regular seafood dishes include Asian crab legs, cod, sushi, lobster and "Plokkfiskur" and rarities such as whale, puffin or foal. Popular red meat delicacies include free range lamb and the lamb hot dog, the most popular meal on the island.
