Yes, Iceland does live up to all the hype! We spent two glorious weeks circumnavigating this beautiful island in the winter and that wasn’t nearly enough time to see or do most of what this country has to offer. While spirits were high upon arrival, we were immediately faced with our first Icelandic weather-blow: WIND. Every road in and out of Reykjavik was shut down because of it. I guess naivety paid off in this situation because prior to that we were only nervous about the icy road conditions and didn’t know we had to worry about wind. Our trusty steed “Gale,” as we named her after the winds, of course, chauffeured us safely around the Ring Road once the winds settled that evening.
Pro tip: Book a trip to Europe via Iceland Air and take advantage of their offer to have an extended layover in Reykjavik.
