Iceland

Been there recently?

Iceland is a stunning island nation in the North Atlantic, known for its dramatic landscapes, geothermal activity, and unique culture. It’s a fantastic destination for travelers seeking adventure, natural beauty, and a bit of the extraordinary. Here’s a simple guide to what you can expect when visiting Iceland:

Capital City: Reykjavík

  • Reykjavík: The capital city is known for its vibrant arts scene, colorful buildings, and rich history. Key attractions include the Hallgrímskirkja church, Harpa Concert Hall, and the Sun Voyager sculpture.

Key Attractions

  • Golden Circle: A popular tourist route that includes Thingvellir National Park, the Gullfoss waterfall, and the Geysir geothermal area.
  • Blue Lagoon: A famous geothermal spa located in a lava field, known for its milky blue waters and luxurious spa treatments.
  • Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon: A breathtaking glacial lagoon filled with floating icebergs, located in southeast Iceland.
  • Vatnajökull National Park: Home to Europe’s largest glacier, Vatnajökull, and many spectacular natural wonders, including ice caves and waterfalls.
  • Northern Lights: Also known as the Aurora Borealis, this natural light display is best seen in the winter months, from late September to early April.

Food and Drink

  • Skyr: A traditional Icelandic dairy product similar to yogurt, often served with berries or honey.
  • Lamb Soup (Kjötsúpa): A hearty soup made with lamb, potatoes, and vegetables.
  • Seafood: Fresh fish and seafood are staples in Icelandic cuisine, with dishes like plokkfiskur (fish stew) being popular.
  • Rúgbrauð: A dense, dark rye bread traditionally baked in geothermal steam.

Language and Currency

  • Language: The official language is Icelandic. English is widely spoken, especially in tourist areas.
  • Currency: The currency is the Icelandic Króna (ISK).

Getting Around

  • Public Transport: Iceland has limited public transport outside of Reykjavík, so renting a car is the most convenient way to explore the country.
  • Driving: Roads are generally well-maintained, but conditions can be challenging in winter. Renting a car allows you to explore the stunning landscapes at your own pace.
  • Tours: Many visitors opt for guided tours to see popular sights, which can be a convenient and informative way to travel.

Best Time to Visit

  • Summer: June to August is the best time to visit, with long daylight hours (the Midnight Sun), milder weather, and accessible highland areas. It’s perfect for hiking and outdoor activities.
  • Winter: November to February is ideal for seeing the Northern Lights and enjoying winter activities like glacier hiking and ice caving. Be prepared for shorter days and colder weather.
  • Spring and Fall: These seasons offer a mix of mild weather and fewer tourists. Spring (April to May) and fall (September to October) are great for sightseeing and enjoying the natural beauty.

Safety and Tips

  • Safety: Iceland is one of the safest countries in the world. However, weather conditions can change rapidly, so always check forecasts and be prepared when traveling in remote areas.
  • Tips: Tipping is not customary in Iceland, as service charges are usually included in the bill. However, rounding up the bill or leaving a small tip for exceptional service is appreciated.

Cultural Insights

  • Geothermal Energy: Iceland uses geothermal energy for heating and electricity. Visiting geothermal areas and hot springs is a must.
  • Sagas and Literature: Iceland has a rich literary tradition, with many historical sagas. The National Museum and Saga Museum in Reykjavík offer insights into this heritage.
  • Festivals: Iceland hosts various festivals, such as the Reykjavík Arts Festival, Iceland Airwaves music festival, and the Secret Solstice music festival.
  • Nature and Wildlife: Iceland is known for its unique landscapes, including volcanoes, glaciers, and waterfalls. Whale watching and bird watching (especially puffins) are popular activities.
