I just lately deliberate a women journey to Iceland. We technically known as it a “Divorce Journey” as a result of a few my buddies had been getting divorced and we needed to plan one thing enjoyable they might stay up for. (On a sidenote: I’m a giant believer on this–It doesn’t should be an overcomplicated worldwide journey, you may plan a mountain climbing journey or a simple weekend staycation–however after I’m going by means of a tough time giving myself one thing to stay up for is so vital.) We did a recap on Ashlynn’s podcast proper right here.

Jen who works with me at Oh Blissful Day loves analysis and helped me plan an awesome itinerary. We determined to go all the way in which across the island which meant we did a number of driving.

However I actually loved seeing every thing and it was truthfully probably the greatest journeys of my life.

6. Vök Baths. Iceland is legendary for its geothermal tub tradition. We made it a objective to attempt as many as we may. Vök Baths was a standout expertise for me for just a few causes. If you’re primarily based in Reykjavik, it’s more durable to get to: it’s on the East facet of the Island and is pretty new. The swimming pools are very very heat (all of the swimming pools are various temperatures) however what’s wonderful is they’re constructed on a chilly lake. So you may soar from the pier into the freezing water and get out and get within the sizzling water. I usually dislike any type of chilly water and I didn’t understand how a lot I might like it. When you’re on that facet of the island, don’t miss it.

5. Volcano. There isn’t all the time an lively volcano in Iceland however fortunately there was one after we had been there. It was so breathtaking to see the earth being fashioned. It was actually one of many coolest experiences of my life. We splurged on a helicopter experience and landed shut by however often there are alternatives to hike there as nicely.

4. Kolaportið Flea Market. Reykjavik isn’t a big metropolis however I all the time verify for flea markets wherever I’m touring to. This one is open on Saturdays and Sundays and was so enjoyable to buy. It isn’t massive and smells somewhat humorous however I bought some treasures and souvenirs to take house to my household. I liked it.

3. Friðheimar Tomato Greenhouse. My pal Heather advised me about this place. The vast majority of Iceland’s contemporary produce is grown in greenhouses. This place turned its greenhouse right into a restaurant. It’s such a cool ambiance. It was one in all our favourite meals of the entire journey.
