Pristine land, pure nature, spectacular glaciers and endless lava fields.
Traveling in Iceland means to travel freely, to contemplate nature and enjoy the beautiful feelings that this gives you.
During the summer the absence of darkness is the first thing that hits you, you can travel and contemplate nature at any time. The sky never gets dark.
Take the road nr. 1 south allows you to sense the vastness of the Vatnajokull glacier, the largest in Europe.
Admire the huge blocks of ice that slowly go towards the sea leaves you speechless.
Wait a geyser jet and feel the puff that comes from the earth moves you stomach.
Eating a sandwich, in a lay-by, surrounded by a vast expanse of purple flowers and the background the mountains, fills the soul of serenity.
Take a walk to the summit of the Hverfjall crater and a lava field, makes you imagine the enormous power and devastation of volcanic eruption.
Exit by boat to see the whales, so huge but agile, leaves you stunned.
Look into the eyes of the puffin sends you so tenderly.
This is Iceland and some reasons for deciding to visit it.
- We traveled with two children aged 6 and 8, in June, and we used a camper van for transportation. This allowed us to be agile when moving and to be able to do even a bit ‘of dirt road (not allowed in a camper), to be completely autonomous for lunch and dinner (with children is very useful), and to contain costs (hotels and dinners at the restaurant are very expensive)
- Free camping is prohibited in Iceland from 2015 due to the tourist influx. Campsites do not have to book and we never had trouble finding the spot. They are generally simple but functional and often placed in scenic locations.
- Clothing in onion and anti rain
- The things to see are numerous and it is therefore essential to make a selection according to your needs. Waterfalls, lava fields and black sand beaches are numerous and worth visiting them a little chance.
- Drinks are in our opinion: The glacier of Vatnajokull, the lagoon of Jakulsarlon iceberg the puffins in Borgarfjordur Eystri, whales Husavik, ocher expanses in Hverir, the thermal baths of Myvatn, the crater of Hverfjall, the area of Geysers
