Six of Our Favourite Experiences in Iceland
We visited Iceland in April 2016 on a whim – just before the advent of summer but not before the snow had melted – and it was awesome! Here are six of our favourite experiences during our short stay in the land of fire and ice.
Waterfalls, waterfalls, waterfalls
The best known waterfalls in Iceland might be Gullfoss and Seljalandfoss, but if you want to avoid the crowds there are plenty of other cascades. This is country where it's almost impossible to go anywhere without stumbling over a waterfall! Just around the corner from Seljalandfoss for instance, is Gljúfrabúi. You can admire this ethereal wall of water from below, via a narrow crack in a cliff, or hike up a muddy path complete with a helpful chain and rickety wooden ladder to see it from the top.
