Iceland – The Great Outdoors

More photographs of our trip, mostly taken in the south-western part of Iceland. The Golden Circle tourism route is an easy way to sample the Icelandic outdoors if a day is all you have. Landmannalaugar is a little further out from Reykjavik, but its multi-coloured mountains and scenic hiking trails are a wondrous sight to behold.

Many thanks to our guide Jon Frosti of Solstice Tours for being our guide, photographer and friend on this trip.

    hello! im a singaporean going to iceland for a vacation soon! any tips and tricks for the autumn season? =)

    • Hi yes sure. Thank you for reading and liking our post. Bring a windbreaker because the winds can be Very strong. It was quite difficult for us to walk at some points. The Golden Circle is a popular tourist route (Gulfoss Waterfall, Geysir, Thingvellir National Park). Rent a car and drive to these places yourself because it’s fairly simple, alot more scenic, and affordable. If you want to venture further out, hire a personal guide to bring you there. We highly recommend Jon Frosti, as mentioned in our post. He has brought us around Iceland twice before! If you’ll like to know where to stay in Reykjavik, let us know we’ll be happy to share with you. Have a great trip in Iceland!

        Hi I’ll be staying at the reykjavik downtown and city hostels. The whole trip’s 10 days. are boots required as i’m planning to do a bit of hiking here and there.

      • Yes boots are a must in Iceland. The terrain outside the city will be tricky at times and you’ll definitely need the traction and ankle support during your hikes.
