Trip Report A week in Iceland. Why is this country so otherworldly?

Jump to last reply

It's been a few months since my visit, but I'm still suffering from Iceland withdrawal.

For those of you who live in Europe or North America, traveling to Iceland isn't hard and I bet Iceland isn't really the definition of "exotic". But for me, it is truly exotic. As I live in Asia, I had to jump to a lot of hoops from visa application to myriad connecting flights to get to this country. My family and most of my friends have no idea where it's, what it's about and thus were utterly baffled when I told them I was going to Iceland. But it didn't matter at all because you guys, this country is beyond GLORIOUS when it comes to natural sceneries. Now that I have been there, I'm willing to jump to even more hoops to get to visit it again :D

I was there for a week and traveling by myself, so I opted for different day tours from Reykjavik instead of renting a car (I couldn't rent a car even if I wanted to, though as I don't know how to drive haha). I don't do guided tours often, as I'm young. But I love all the tours I joined. I'm still in the process of writing about my experience, but I want to share with you what I have finished. So here it is:

I hope it's helpful for those who are about to visit Iceland. I'm positively certain you will be blown away and love every minute of your time in this insanely spectacular country ;)
