Man, oh man! We just got back from Iceland and I am in love! With mountains, waterfalls, horses, icebergs, amazing food and sooo much more, Iceland was the perfect way to “get away from it all” and “recharge the batteries.”
Similar to New Zealand, Iceland offers a variety of unique landscapes and activities in a relatively small amount of space. To make the most of our week, we rented a car and drove around the Ring Road – the highway that circles the entire island – with several short side trips along the way.
Like I did for our New Zealand adventure, I’ll be sharing a little bit about what we did each day in the coming weeks. But for now, here is a brief outline of our adventures with a few of my favorite pictures.
Our Iceland Adventure
Day one of our Ring Road in a Week adventure consisted of swimming in a hot river, hiking to the “most beautiful place in Iceland” and standing beneath (and behind) some pretty impressive waterfalls. Click here to read more about Day 1.
