If you are a neat freak, love virgin nature and have a week of vacation go to Iceland. Iceland is a European country that occupies a whole island located in the North Atlantic Ocean. It is the land of volcanoes, geysers, hot springs, lava fields and massive glaciers.  Iceland gysir

When to go?

The best time to visit is June, July. It is the time of white nights, which is the experience of it’s own. Your time of broad daylight is unlimited so you do not need to get up early to have enough time to see everything planned for the day; you won’t face the situation when the roads are closed due to heavy snow or low visibility; the Icelandic nature gems do not require standing in lines, paying fees and literally no open/closed hours. All you need is a camera and wide opened eyes to see the beauty.

What to wear?

Hiking comfy clothes, good quality hiking boots (Columbia, Adidas, etc.), sunglasses & plastic rain protection poncho, which is very expensive in Iceland and costs about $2.00 in North America

Where to stay?

Reykjavik, the country’s capital, has lots of hotels and AirB&B for your budget needs. If you would like a pure luxury then book the Diamond Suits hotel in Keflavik. It is 4 km from the airport and 5 minutes walk from Troll House and the Ocean. If you like horses you can stay at any farm accommodation. The country is super clean and eco friendly.

What wild life to look for?

Seals in Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon; White wild swans and cutest “ugly ducklings” born in the first days of June; icenladic geese and puffins and Icelandic horses.
