Another highlight in Iceland are the Westfjords. I’ve also been there before, if you wanna watch a little video about my 4-days trip, click <<here>>! The Westfjords are the part of Iceland, where not that many tourists are – yet. A lot of the people traveling around Iceland are leaving the Westfjords behind, because you need some time to drive them. 😉 We had time and it was one of the best parts! So many hot springs – all to our own and a really cool waterfall, I haven’t been before. It’s called the “nameless waterfall”, super small hike but worth it! And yeah – the hot tubs in the westfjords are the best! I think we went to 5, but in the photos are only two. 😉 Continue reading “Around Iceland – Westfjords”
I’ve been to the Snaefellsnes Peninsula before – but didn’t remember how amazing it is. So if now someone asks me what to do in Iceland, when you have not that much time, I always say – go to the Snaefellsnes Peninsula! There is so much! A glacier, hot springs, cliffs, caves… You can spent one day or a week! Either way, it won’t get boring! Continue reading “Around Iceland – Snaefellsnes Peninsula”
Oh Iceland… you are so beautiful – even with 3 weeks of bad weather! 😉 This is the video of our trip around Iceland. We came with our own car from Germany, drove to Denmark and took the ferry to Iceland. But see for yourself, it was amazing – as always!
On our way around Iceland we drove by the south coast as well! Including one of my favorite places on earth – the Glacier Lagoon, Jökursarlagon! I’m always amazed, this place is just magical. There was less ice, than the times I’ve visited this place before, but still so beautiful. We also camped right next to the beach, which is allowed. At least there was no sign, which said we couldn’t and of course we weren’t the only ones. 😉 The glacier lagoon was followed by the famous waterfalls next to Skaftafell, Skogafoss and Selfoss, spending the night in Vik, close to the Black Beach.

We really wanted to go bouldering and climbing in Iceland. In our imagination we would just stop when we see some rocks and try to go bouldering. Yeah… we didn’t expect the weather to be that bad. So this was more or less the only time we went bouldering. The first spot was, close to Skaftafell, on a black beach, pretty random, but quite nice. The second spot and probably the most famous one for bouldering in Iceland was Vestrahorn. Extremely scenic, but we thought it was quite hard to find hard boulders. Nevertheless we highly recommend going there – even if you are not into bouldering – this view and this beach are something special!
