Discover Iceland

Why everyone is obsessed with Iceland:

Iceland has the most beautiful serene nature; waterfalls, glaciers, geysers, unique black sand beaches and a blue lagoon. The blue lagoon is what Iceland is the most known for, but it has so much more to offer than a trip to the spa. Do not get this wrong. The spa is unbelievably amazing as well and definitely worth a visit.

Here is a list of beautiful places to go to in the south west of Iceland (Including 4 different waterfalls):

  1. Gullfoss Waterfall
  2. Sólheimajökull Glacier
  3. Seljalandsfoss (A waterfall)
  4. Skogafoss (A waterfall)
  5. Thingvellir National Park
  6. Reynisdangar (Black Sand Beach)
  7. Strokkur (Geyser)
  8. Kirkjufellsfoss (Waterfall)
  9. Snæfellsnes

How to get around:

  • Taxis
  • Rental cars
  • Scheduled Coaches
  • Public transportation (Only runs between the major cities)

What kind of transportation is the cheaper for you depends on how many places you want to go to. When I was in Iceland I wanted to go to a lot of places that you can not get to with public transportation. You can buy different tours to the different attractions in Iceland. I wanted to see a lot of those attractions and I therefore calculated that renting a car would be cheaper for me in the end, instead of having to pay for 5 different guided tours. So it really depends on how long you are in Iceland for and what you want to explore during your time there.

Transportation prices:

  • The guided one-day tours range from 80€ to 230€ per tour.
  • The cheapest rental cars ranges from 24€ to 100€ depending on the season and day of the week.

Cheap rental cars can be found using the app KAYAK.

A good tip: DO NOT rent your car “on location” when you arrive in the airport. It is so much more expensive than if you book the car in advance online!
