The Ultimate Guide to Visiting Iceland
Under30Experiences travelers have taken our Explore Iceland trip all say the same thing: "I wish I could stay longer."
No matter how long a traveler stays, it seems to be never enough.
Since we've visited this amazing country many times, we have a pretty good idea of all it has to offer. We also asked our community what their favorite spots are and had more than 50 comments from alumni.
All the information has been rounded up here for you in this simple guide.
Keep in mind, this guide does NOT contain the activities we do on our U30X trip. So if you want to see what we explore in Iceland, click here.
