Known as the Land of Ice and Fire, Iceland offers stunning landscapes during all four seasons. From lava fields and geysers to ice caves and waterfalls, there’s a truly spectacular sight in any direction. Although the most beautiful things in life are best experienced in person, these are the top 5 Instagram spots in Iceland.
The Blue Lagoon is Iceland’s top attraction. This electric blue geothermal spa stays around 100 degrees F, creating a steamy overhand atop the waters, making this a perfect photo spot. Spend a relaxing afternoon here complete with a mud bath.
This waterfall is considered the most beautiful waterfall in Iceland. Its rushing waters and sun-splashed display of color during the daylight certainly help, but what makes this spot truly photo-worthy is the ability to walk behind the falling water to get a unique view of the scene.
Hallgrimskurkja Church is the largest church and one of the tallest buildings in Iceland. Not only is the church a good photo subject; the view from the top is worthwhile too. You can look over the colorful rooftops of the capital, Reykjavik, while observing citylife below.
Vatnajokull National Park
Vatnajokull is the largest National Park in all of Europe. The list of photo ops is endless: ice caves, glacier lagoons and Northern Lights are just a few of the things you can witness for yourself. It’s impossible to pass up a trip to Iceland without experiencing some of nature’s incredible phenomena, most of which can be found in Vatnajokull.
Picture glittering icebergs sunken into a vast black sand-scape. Diamond Beach is named after these huge pieces of ice that have washed ashore from the sea. The contrast between the stretch of black sand and the ice chunks makes for truly breathtaking sights. Photos won’t do it justice, but you’d be remiss to not try and snap a few!
