I cant even begin to explain to you all how excited I am to FINALLY be going to Iceland.
I have been dreaming about going to Iceland since I was in high school and first heard of the musician Bjork. I fell in love with her music and decided to do some research about her online. I learned she was from Iceland and that prompted me to do a search about Iceland. The first photo that popped up on my “Iceland search” was of Aurora Borealis(the northern lights). It was at that moment, I fell in love with a country I had never been to and became obsessed with learning everything I could about this mystical place I HAD to one day visit.

I will be going for 12 days and my tentative schedule is starting to look REALLY exciting!!! Of course I plan on seeing the northern lights while I am there, I planned the trip during the time that they are frequently sighted. I also hope to scuba dive Silfra, visit the blue lagoon, do the golden circle tour, tour Reykjavik by bicycle or segway, hike through ice caves, soak in geothermal pools(hot springs), see as many waterfalls as possible and more!!!

Once my itinerary is finalized I will post a new blog and add the links of the companies I will be using. Feel free to send suggestions my way!!! 😀 I booked my airfare with One Travel(link below). It was THE LOWEST airfare I have found in my almost 20 years of watching airfare to Iceland.
Check back in the coming weeks/months to see what my final itinerary looks like!!!
