So you‘ve arrived at this far out place in the North and understandably want to take advantage of your situation and up your Instagram game with some unbelievable #nofilters. Here’s a list of Iceland’s most instagrammed places, that are sure to make your homies jealous. #sorrynotsorry
1. The Blue Lagoon
Oh, the Blue Lagoon. It’s blue, it’s hot and it’s great for your skin. It might be the country’s biggest tourist trap but to be honest, it’s still wonderful, unique and totally worth a visit. #nofilter tip: Check out the various blue streams that flow through the black lava around the Blue Lagoon.
2. Mt. Kirkjufell
As far as mountains go, Kirkjufell is the Mads Mikkelsen of mountains. Come rain, shine, fog or storm, it will always look drop dead gorgeous, rugged and handsome. Just don’t get any bright ideas about climbing it without proper know-how, it is as scary as it is pretty.
3. Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon
Fact: This is the prettiest place on Earth. Just go there and see for yourself. You will never forget it. The End. #nofilter #werenotjoking #cool #blue #amazing #beautiful #travel
Geysir is the biggest geyser in the world and the one the rest are named after. Although its eruptions are huge and extreme phenomena, they happen very erratically. Its smaller counterpart Strokkur however, just won’t stop erupting and will spout out a huge column of hot water every 5 minutes or so like a trooper. It is really a sight to behold and due to its frequency, getting the perfect shot is no problem. #blowingoffsomesteam
Hallgrímskirkja is a Reykjavik landmark in and of itself and a super popular model for every Instagrammer strolling up Skólavörðustígur. However, the view from the church’s tower is the truly breathtaking one, whether you want a shot of the colorful rooftops of downtown, a symmetric cityscape or a panoramic view over Faxaflói bay with the city in the foreground. #iheartreykjavik #cuteandcolorful
