    This was a great read, and wow, it sounds like an amazing experience and I love the pictures!!! Love everything you wrote about, but have to say Kerid Crater wins my heart…hahaha, that was cute the proposal you guys came up with! One day, I’ll have to get to Iceland!

    1. Yes, the Kerid Crater was such a cool stop. Really loved that it wasn’t crowded at all. And our pictures really don’t do justice to the colours or the size. Yes, definitely have to get to Iceland. I feel like it’s on sale all the time so we can go whenever 🙂

    I enjoyed reading your article. Photos are very beautiful. My favorite places would be Thingvellir National Park, Gullfoss, and Kerid Crater. Hope to visit these places sometime. Your joke is sweet and funny.

    1. Thanks for reading & commenting, Natalia! I hope you make it to Iceland soon and can see these places yourself 🙂

  5. I still haven’t made it to Iceland but it’s very high on my list! I love that you included some places that other people skip or don’t know about – I prefer the less-touristy spots.

    1. Thanks for the comment, Maggie. I hope you make it to Iceland soon – it’s beautiful! And it really feels like even the most touristy spots aren’t that busy. Nothing compared to the main attractions in some European cities.

    Wow! Secret Lagoon was so busy when you visited! It was not that bad when I was there. There were a couple more stops I made on my Golden Circle drive, but they can’t really all be done unless you visit in summer and have maximum daylight!

    1. Yes, it did seem to fill up as we were leaving. I’d love to see it less busy. And I’d love to know where else you stopped on your Golden Circle drive!

    Yes!!! Finally an alternative to the Blue Lagoon that isn’t just a local pool in Reykjavik! I’ll have to check that out one day. Love all your recommendations – I had a tour included last time with our flights, but it would have been much more fun to do it by ourselves, and you got loads done. I’ve never heard of that crater either!

    1. Thanks so much! I so appreciate your comment. The secret lagoon was a blast and so was Kerid Crater. Definitely check those out the next time you’re in Iceland!
