Downside: The lack of plenty sunlight and the eternal dawn. The expensive services.
Our Experiences: Iceland is a beautiful enigmatic place. The whole country population almost fits in a big stadium. There are no people around, no trees and poor sunlight. There are also some wild horses ( beautiful) running in the fields. 2/3 of the energy sources comes from volcanoes ( geothermal ). Everything is uncommon here. Taking advantage of all that, we stayed in a hotel bordering the famous blue lagoon, a hot geothermic lake where you can bath. It is amazing! The hotel was fantastic with a sharp architecture of minimalism and man-nature´s interaction. In October people gather to see the northern lights, We hope to do that soon.
Hotels we love and recommend: Blue Lagoon Hotel ( Grindavik )
