Iceland

Iceland. One of those countries that is on millions of bucket lists...and for good reason. Last month, four friends and I ventured to this volcano-ridden country in hopes of seeing the sights that Southern Iceland has to offer.

Here are a few of my favorite sights and places:

The Golden Circle has plenty of worthy sights within a short drive from Reykjavik. We stopped at Pingvellir, Gulfoss, and Geysir. There aren't many food options on the route, so pack a lunch or plan to stop while you're visiting Geysir!

 

I managed to gather a few video clips while we were driving and hiking, and really got to put my Lander gear to the test! I was very pleased with the Traveler pack - it carried my camera and kept it dry even throughout Iceland's moody weather. Be sure to check out more of their gear at www.Lander.com, and save 25% with "Mackenzie25" at checkout!

 

Sights on the way to Vík. Every shade of green.

This drive was really pretty. It's amazing how many views we had within a few hours of driving. The waterfalls were breathtaking.

 

Reykjavik. Considering the city is mostly made of metal and concrete, it is awfully colorful.

 

On our final full-day in Iceland, we ventured further north to the Snæfellsnes peninsula, where we spent our afternoon in a very remote fishing town, then made our way around the peninsula loop. We hiked over old hardened lava along the seacoast and were overwhelmed by the cliffs and colors of the water below. Still in awe from the photos I got at Kitkjufell Mountain.

Where we spent our final night. The coziest little cabin, Tradir Guesthouse.

Thank you to Lander for supporting me with gear that kept my computer, camera, and phone safe while on this journey of a lifetime.
