It was announced that from mid-March, Iceland will welcome vaccinated travelers from the UK, and things are starting to look up for those who are wanting to travel! For most of us, it’s our first trip outside of the UK since the pandemic started, so this comes as great news. So if you’re planning a trip to Iceland and especially if it will be your first holiday, it is worth some planning ahead so you can visit and do the must do and see things in Iceland!
Here are some amazing places to visit in Iceland that are dying to see you too:
The famous Blue Lagoon
The Blue Lagoon isn’t just any traditional tourist spot. It has become a luxurious escape with options for every price point so you can decide how you want to pamper yourself. You can opt for a day visit at Blue Lagoon, where you can relax in the heated pools, enjoy the beautiful setting, and enjoy some luxurious skincare with the natural silica. It does draw a number of visitors, but if you stay at the Blue Lagoon hotel you can be more flexible with the times that you actually go down and soak in the Blue Lagoon.
Visit Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon
Another incredible lagoon in Iceland is Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon. You can see glacier icebergs here that you just can’t quite experience here in the UK. It’s a stunning place that is unique to Iceland and if you haven’t seen glaciers before, this is a must!
Go see the Northern Lights
The Northern Lights are a major draw for visitors to Iceland. They are an astronomical phenomenon where colored light is visible in the night sky, and it is an incredible experience. It is, however, not a guarantee that you will see them so while you don’t want to have your heart 100% set on seeing them or make your entire trip centered around them!
Visit the small town of Husavik
Husavik is a small town and the oldest settlement in Iceland, and it is worth visiting while here! It is known for its geothermal baths and whale watching, and you can easily pass a day or more relaxing here and wandering around the charming town.
The Vik beaches in Iceland are dramatic and unlike the ones in the UK. With such incredible nature and drastic landscapes, it can be hard to imagine the unique beaches. Vik’s volcanic beach is a black sand beach and a must visit to experience the unique setting and beauty.
Iceland is one of the most naturally beautiful countries on Earth, and it’s a place really everybody should try to visit once to experience the power of nature in all of its beauty. Especially after so much time spent at home and with little to no traveling allowed during the pandemic, going somewhere such as Iceland with such incredible beauty where you can recharge in nature makes for a great trip destination.
