Iceland is a gorgeous place with remarkable landscapes in every direction: from icebergs in the water, to geysers, waterfalls, glaciers and volcanoes on land, to the night lights in the sky. We hope you enjoy this 4K highlights video from our one week trip there!
On our 10 hour tour of Iceland’s Golden Circle, we visited Gulfoss Waterfall, went snorkeling in the Silfra Fissure, hiked through parts of Thingvellir National Park, and visited the Geysir hot springs (home to the geyser after which all geysers are named). It’s little surprise that the Golden Circle is considered one of Iceland’s must-do itineraries.
On our trip to Iceland we snorkeled in the Silfra Fissure, a rift where the North American and Eurasian continental plates meet. The 35 degree water is some of the clearest in the world. Even though we were wearing multiple layers and a dry suit, being in the water for 45 minutes was a frigid (but incredible) experience!
Hallgrimskirkja is a beautiful church in the center of Reykjavik. Its central location—and the fact it’s one of the highest buildings in Reykjavik (and Iceland)—means that it has gorgeous panoramic views of the city from the top. It’s definitely worth paying the extra fee to ride the elevator up and see the city.
