Destinations / Europe

Over the past few years, Iceland has become an increasingly popular vacation destination, due in part to its stunning natural beauty. With so many places to experience, add these spots to your list to ensure you’ll have photos to make all of your friends back home jealous.

 

Northern Lights

If seeing this natural light display is at the top of your list, aim to visit Iceland between September and April, when the phenomenon is at its peak.

 

Waterfalls

Iceland’s majestic waterfalls serve as a perfect natural photo subject. While there are many to choose from, start your waterfall tour with these: Skógafoss, Gullfoss, Svartifoss and Seljalandsfoss.

 

Glaciers

A trip to Iceland isn’t complete without experiencing a glacier up close. The serene surroundings make for a perfect photo. Visit Svínafellsjökull, Vatnajökull, Sólheimajökull and Langjökull.

 

Geothermal Spas

Another iconic Icelandic experience is a trip to a geothermal spa. Head to the Blue Lagoon if want a shot of the striking blue waters and don’t mind crowds. Try Laugarvatn Fontana for a spa with a stunning backdrop.

 

Harpa 

Reykjavik’s conference hall and concert venue opened to the public in 2011. The stunning building features a colored glass façade, perfect for snapping a beautiful architectural Instagram.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
