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.
Our longest day trip in Iceland was to see icebergs in Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon. Despite the very long day (the excursion was about 18 hours!) the trip to Glacier Lagoon was absolutely worth it. Most tour companies offer this as a 2-day trip, but a few now have a 1-day option. Aside from the glaciers and incredible icebergs, we also saw some epic waterfalls, and were lucky enough to spot the Northern Lights on the bus ride back to Reyjkavik.
The climb took us about 30 minutes. Something like this would probably not be available in the US because of liability issues (the rock can be slippery). However, the climb was relatively easy and took about 30 minutes. Definitely a lot of fun. You can read the detailed account here.
Flume Gorge was a fun, easy hike not too far from Boston. The scenery is quite pretty and it’s definitely worth the trip. Check out my Ultra High definition video from the hike. If you have a 4K monitor, you might feel like you’re there! You can read the detailed account here.
Some video from our hike to Manoa Falls in Honolulu, Hawaii. It takes about a 2 hour hike through the jungle to get to the waterfall. The jungle there is quite beautiful.
