Fueling Wanderlust: 20 Photos to Make You Want to Visit Iceland

Oh, Iceland… the amount of beauty this country has is absolutely insane. Iceland is known as the “Land of Fire and Ice”, and as soon as you visit, you will understand the meaning of wanderlust. There are volcanoes, glaciers, and waterfalls for days!

If you are in need of a vacation that is relaxing and full of fresh air and nature, then this should be your next destination. Along with the natural beauty, the people are friendly, the food is good, and the activities you can do are so fun!

My Adventures

On my trip, I hiked to a glacier, saw volcanoes, walked behind a waterfall, went whale watching, relaxed in the Blue Lagoon, and ate lots of ice cream from a shop called Joylato, all while making lifetime friends.

Hopefully these 20 photos will fuel your wanderlust and have you on a plane headed to Reykjavik soon!
