Not only does Iceland have some amazing scenery but it also has some pretty delicious food too. And some foods that we don't get to have as often, at least in New York. So whether you are there for a long weekend or full week, be sure to try plenty of seafood (anything from fermented shark to fish stew), lamb, pastries from the shops in Reykjavík and Skye yogurt!
Where do we begin. Iceland is such an incredible country with so much to see and do that it's hard to come up with just 10 things to suggest. These things can be done during a long weekend trip which will give you a good idea of what the country has to offer.
I'm so excited to finally start sharing posts on our amazing trip to Iceland. While we only went for a long weekend, we felt like the entire experience was incredible and it's by far one of the most beautiful places I've ever been to. For us, it was a girls weekend for me and one other friend. We had travelled together before (to a much warmer place) but knew we were good traveling buddies and we would have a fun long weekend in store.
You've probably seen each of these a thousand times if you are starting to think about your trip to Iceland but even for a long weekend away these are all must see places...
Part 2 of our Iceland trip led us a bit outside of Reykjavík where most would consider more of a tourist loop. While it's perfect for a first time trip to Iceland, when I make it back someday, I would probably skip over most of our day's itinerary because there are so many other beautiful places and things to visit in Iceland that are further from the city.
