Iceland – Go Solo!

What can I say about Iceland? Words fail me as it’s so unbelievably beautiful.

Even though Iceland’s nickname of “The Land of Fire & Ice” sounds intimidating, solo travel is comfortable and really easy here. The country has an incredibly low crime rate.

The city of Reykjavik is famous for its music scene and nightlife, so you’ll have no problem meeting locals and fellow travellers.

There are countless reasons to visit Iceland, but it’s her natural beauty that steals the show. Join a tour to see geysers and waterfalls, snorkel or dive the Silfra Fissure and hike a glacier. And don’t miss a bath at the beautiful Blue Lagoon (although I found a much more private hot spring with far less people!)

I recommend though hiring a car and doing a tour yourself. Iceland is incredibly easy to navigate around and the roads are far from busy. (I visited in December 2019).

The only slight drawback is that eating out is a little pricey but on the plus side all of the attractions I went too were free.

My tour was 5 days from west to east and back again. You can see so many stunning attractions even in that short time which makes it a great way to start off your first solo holiday adventure. The people are friendly, the food is excellent, and the scenery in the winter? Mind-blowing.
