Iceland, a Nordic island nation, is defined by its dramatic landscape with volcanoes, geysers, hot springs and lava fields. It is actually a land of ice and fire.Massive glaciers are protected in Vatnajökull and Snæfellsjökull national parks. Most of the population lives in the capital, Reykjavik, which runs on geothermal power and is home to the National and Saga museums, tracing Iceland’s Viking history.
One of the best way to see this beautiful country is by going on a Super Jeep tour. The super jeep is capable of navigating the steepest and rockiest of terrains, deserts or beaches.
I had been to Iceland in March and April earlier this year, and had even flown up north to Akureyri, the skiing capital . This place is worth visiting if you can afford the time, as most people cover the standard Golden Circle Tour and South Coast, visiting the black sand beaches and various waterfalls including Seljalandsfoss waterfall, which is rare as you can walk behind the falls to enjoy the view from another perspective.
For just a short one week in Iceland, this is what I recommend. Since, I am based in Singapore, I will provide the flight details from Singapore on British Airways as my preferred choice.
And at the moment, I have two other ladies confirmed joining me to this trip in December 2017.
