I'm going to Iceland

  1. My girlfriend is the sweetest and booked us a trip to Iceland
  2. Who has been? Any things I must do, see, eat?
  3. Here's the google map I made for my trip: Iceland Trip https://goo.gl/maps/8fGCp48gxN82
    I didn't schedule events, I just planned by legs I'd drive a day and marked sight seeing spots along the route. This way, I could choose to do anything or skip certain things if time ran out. Also, I listed about each day 😊

  5. Blue Lagoon
    Not my photo, but I went at nighttime and it was definitely an experience. It's closer to the airport in Grindavik. But if you're not renting a car, there are shuttles you can book the ticket with through Reykjavik Excursions. It's definitely a tourist trap because so many people want to go but it was pretty awesome, in my opinion.

  6. Hallgrimskirkja
    I think it was 8 USD for a ticket to climb to the top of the bell tower. It has a 360 view of Reykjavik and the street directly in front of it leads you into the shops of downtown.

  7. Gullfoss
    This insane waterfall. You'll be there in March when it's still cold too! If you rent a car this was definitely worth seeing. Everything is pretty much a quick drive off the main road too.

  8. Vik
    It's a little town in the southern part. It has a black sand beach which was stunning, no matter what time of day you're there. There's a restaurant right next to the beach, but if I recall it was pretty pricey. The actual town is small enough with some cute shops though.

  9. Pingvellir National Park
    It's a pretty big park but the cool thing is you can go diving between two continents! I didn't get a chance to do it for my trip but it looked cool. If that's not your thing, there's a lot of trails you can take and there's even a waterfall. Plus there should be snow on the ground while you're there.

  10. Pylsur
    It's an Icelandic hot dog stand! They have them all over Reykjavik (and I'm not sure if you eat meat!) but this is a big thing there. I wasn't a fan but it was worth trying.

  11. The Lonely Planet's Iceland book
    I don't remember which version but the guys I went with had this. It helped to know where we were or find coffee shops, restaurants, little hole in the wall places that locals would go to. Not sure if y'all are just staying in Reykjavik or doing the whole Golden Circle, but this might help to find points of interest!
