9. Kerid Crater
This post, we are taking to the skies on a helicopter ride from Reykjavik to see some of Iceland’s most spectacular scenery from above. From up in the air, you can see that Iceland really is a land of extremes. You have boiling mud and steam rising from the earth, right next to snowcapped mountains and waterfalls. So far, 9 great day trips from reykjavik we’ve seen craters, volcanoes, boiling mud, which is the first time I’ve ever seen that in my entire life. And now, we’re headed to the Blue Lagoon.
7. Reynisfjara Beach
I always thought the Blue Lagoon would be bright blue. But instead, 9 great day trips from reykjavik it’s this pastel green. This one is pretty cool and some steam coming up from it.
Did you call it pretty cool? Yeah. Would you use another word? Probably. We just made our first stop at an active volcano. There’s steam rising out of the vents and, supposedly, this could erupt at any minute. So, it’s a little scary. Hopefully it won’t be today. Wow.
The landscape here is so unique. You have this old lava flow covered in this crazy-looking moss. And what’s funny is that, in the wintertime, when everything else is covered in snow, this is still like a sauna. On our way home, we’re flying over the city of Reykjavik.
4. Whale Watching Tour
The houses below almost look like little dollhouses with their colorful roofs. The scenery here is just astounding. Iceland is famous for its landscapes and scenery, but I have to say, this was the ultimate way to see the country.
