A trip to Iceland for individualists

If you want to experience a very special holiday, one with a lot of nature, beautiful hikes and impressions that will remain in your memory, you should plan a trip through Iceland. The island is wildly romantic and offers countless beautiful places to visit. And the best thing is: God knows, the island is not overrun by mass tourism. Splendid!

Iceland - land of volcanism

When you think of Iceland, you inevitably think of the following associations: the capital Reykjavik, a large island state in northern Europe, very sparsely populated, lots of fishing, volcanoes, geysers, glaciers and fjords. All of that is right. The island is huge and lies on the one hand on the North American plate and on the other hand on the Eurasian plate, making it a volcanically extremely active area. This makes up a large part of the wild and romantic charm of the island. In the center of the country you will find the Icelandic highlands, a glacial desert that is deserted. On the other hand, on the coasts there are countless paradisiacal fjords that drain the meltwater into the oceans. Here the coast is heavily furrowed. The climate is oceanic cool, but on the south coast it is strongly influenced by the Irmingerstrom (5 ° C). On the northeast and southwest coast, however, from the cold Greenland Current. Similar to England, this means that the summers are cooler than here, while the winters are somewhat milder. The most pleasant travel time for you should therefore be in the warmer months.

You should definitely plan some time to travel to Iceland. You need at least 8 days for the classic “ring road”, which you use to circle Iceland. You can approach it even more relaxed if you plan more time. If you would like to discover the highlands as well, add a few more days. You will not regret it.

The classic round trip starts and ends in Reykjavik. Most of it runs along the coast. This is how you get up close and personal with the rugged cliffs. These were created over the course of millions of years, when meltwater flowed from the glaciers into the sea or the stormy seas hit the rocks. But the trip does not only offer coastal stretches. You will also stop at Thingvellir National Park, Jökulsarlon, Husavik and Akureyri. Volcanoes and geysers included.

In total, you cover at least 1,300 km in the course of these at least 8 days. You should therefore carefully consider which travel vehicle you choose and whether you want it to be comfortable or stressful. The stressful variant is the one in which you search and book your accommodation in advance or from day to day. The convenient option is to travel in a motorhome. So you have no accommodation problems and always have everything you need for an unforgettable trip with you.
