Iceland has recently become quite the popular travel destination, and for good reason. Just look at how gorgeous it is! As an added bonus, it’s considered to be a rather budget-friendly trip.
But truth be told, Jeremy and I have been longing to go for years. One of our first dates revolved around watching Heima, a documentary that follows the band Sigur Ros around their homeland of Iceland (they’re from Reykjavík) during their tour of the country in 2006.
The scenery – and vibes that come with it – instantly had me longing to visit this incredible land.
Oh, and the Northern Lights and hot springs seem pretty okay, too…
Iceland is still a fairly affordable travel destination, all things considered. However, at the rate people are learning about it, I suspect costs will begin to climb rather drastically. So, we’d better start planning a trip soon!
Something I recently stumbled across is Icelandair’s stopover program. If you’re heading from the states to Europe, you can stopover in Iceland for up to a week with no extra fee. Yes, please!
No question: Iceland’s definitely moved to the top of my travel bucket list. When can I start packing?
