Reykjavík; the capital city of Iceland. Here we end our amazing 2 week holiday / road trip. We drove 3,043 kilometres before reaching this amazing city. We leave our rental car behind and discover Reykjavík by foot. Amazing wall art, sculptures, architecture and more… Rekjavik has it all!
From Reykjanes we drive through West, North and East Iceland and now we are in the South! South Iceland has an awful lot to offer. We visit glaciers and glacier lakes, find diamonds on the beach, see seals, visit stunning waterfalls, geysers, hot springs and so much more…
We are halfway through our road trip in Iceland. We have covered Reykjanes, West and North Iceland and still have a week to go. East Iceland to me is tranquil and peaceful. Canyons, forest, beautiful fjords, fishing villages and a lot of orange lighthouses to see for this lighthouse freak!
We are travelling clockwise through Iceland. After Reykjanes and West Iceland we are now in North Iceland. To me this may be the most beautiful part of the country. Stunning fjords, road blocks by horses, whales and lots of waterfalls!
From Reykjanes we drive to West Iceland. There is simply too much to see; you can spend an entire holiday just in this area! We visit the famous waterfalls of Hraunfossar and Bjarnafoss, drive around the Snaefellsness peninsula and go for a 4WD adventure on the Haukadalsskarð pass.
Finally I get to go to Iceland. A gift to myself for my birthday. Together with a dear friend I will drive around Iceland for 2 weeks starting with the beautiful Reykjanes Peninsula. It is an amazing start of the best holiday ever!
Part 4: this is the last part of my 2 week Cyclades island hopping holiday. Santorini is probably the most touristic island, but how could it not be?! When you arrive by ferry you are in the middle of the caldera. You see the amazing cliffs and the picturesque mountain villages of Fira, Imerovigli and Oia on top. It is a stunning sight! Time to discover Santorini!
The Netherlands are more than Amsterdam, Windmills and dykes. Make sure you take your time to explore. In the north lie the beautiful Wadden islands. Texel is the biggest one and the easiest to reach. Nature, beaches, plenty to do and see, good food and beer: Texel has it all!
