Iceland is one of the most captivating countries in Europe. This Nordic island nation is a melting point of volcanoes, geysers, glaciers, hot springs, and lava fields. After a day devouring the dramatic sights, you can indulge in some rest and relaxation in the geothermal pools. Today’s article is going to help you decide the best way to see Iceland.
Highlights of Iceland
Here is an overview of the typical sights you will want to experience in Iceland.
Cruising is always an exciting means of discovering a destination and Iceland is no different. Cruises in Iceland take you up close to the fjords and glaciers while increasing your odds of sighting marine birds and mammals including whales. Expeditions aim to educate you on the unique geology of the country and the history of the Vikings in Iceland. Cruises typically run from late May to early October.
Renting a car and self-driving your way around Iceland is one of the popular ways of exploring the island. This gives you complete control over your itinerary and where and for how long you stop. You can select your choice of accommodation in each town or even opt to rent a campervan for an off-the-grid experience. Icelanders drive on the right and an international permit is not required to rent a car. But you must remember to keep your headlights on at all times as per Icelandic laws.
Organized tours are another attractive way of exploring Iceland. These run from as little as two or three nights to three weeks. That means that you have the option to book several day tours as a hybrid with self-driving. Tours run all year round and are designed to suit the seasons; during the winter months, you can join escorted tours to witness the northern lights. Meanwhile, summer tours are geared towards hiking.
