Trip review
Iceland

loved their trip to Iceland

There was so much to love about this trip, but the extraordinary beauty everywhere we looked was clearly the best part with so many photo ops (over 1300 photos/videos!). March was a great time to be in Iceland as we got plenty of daylight but still had some wonderful winter experiences including the Snaefellsness Peninsula (a winter wonderland) and Northern Lights sightings two nights in a row. We absolutely loved our helicopter tour and exploring by car at our leisure the South Coast, the glacier lagoon and beach and the golden circle (especially the hike down to the ÖXARÁRFOSS waterfall). Had a lot of fun exploring Rekjyavik. And the Harpa was magnificent. We had stunning weather and it was about as perfect as it could be.

Best parts:
Flexibility of having our own car Well-planned itinerary through Snaefellsnes peninsula, south coast, vatnajokull, golden circle and Rekjyavik. Great accommodations (and breakfasts) at the F*** H*** And H*** K***. Helicopter tour was incredible (real highlight of the trip) Great weather and northern lights sighting All went very smoothly
Worst parts:
We could easily have skipped the Blue Lagoon. It was nice, but everything else was so spectacular, it paled in comparison.

I agree that it is great to have your own car while travelling around Iceland, it just gives you so much freedom. I also understand the part about the Blue Lagoon, perhaps next time you can try the Secret Lagoon or another natural hot spring :) I hope you come to Iceland again and experience its beauty in the summer time too!
