Hello all - Karen here,
I could sit here and describe to you all of the magical, beyond magical things I got to witness in the beautiful land of fire and ice. But to be completely honest, words can't possibly do this country justice. There is an inexplicable, almost indescribable quality about Iceland that just makes you feel like you are on another planet.
I’m not saying I wouldn’t go at any other time of the year, but “snow season” is incomparable. I visited in late November and I wouldn’t trade up the wondrous blanket of snow that constantly surrounded us for anything. Besides, it’s during those darkest days of winter (5 hours of sun) that you have the best chance at experiencing the Northern Lights and all it has to offer.
Also - waterfalls, so many waterfalls. (heart-eyes everywhere)
