Iceland holds a special place in my heart. Aside from the breathtaking waterfalls, the unique and ever-changing landscape, and the majestic Northern Lights, this was the trip that created “Team Travel”, as we now call ourselves.
I was itching to travel and noticed a mutual friend of mine had been traveling quite a bit. One day, while admiring his Instagram photos, I sent him a message letting him know that if he ever needed a travel buddy, I was interested. Assuming nothing would come of it, it was to my surprise when he responded with, “A friend and I are thinking of going to Iceland during Thanksgiving break, if you’d like to join!”. I hesitated for a few reasons. The first being that I didn’t want to miss the holiday with my family, the second being that he and I had never travelled together and barely knew each other, and lastly, Iceland wasn’t on the top of my travel list at the time (I can’t believe I’m admitting this). I’m SO glad I didn’t let those uncertainties hold me back because Iceland quickly moved to the top of my list of places I’ve been and would recommend. PLUS, I gained two great friends and forever travel companions from it.
Planning a November trip to Iceland was tricky due to the lack of daylight. We had about 5 hours of sun at most each day. Luckily for us, our travel styles were completely in sync and we wanted to fit in as much as we possibly could during our short stay. Here, I will help you plan the Ultimate 4-day road trip through the South Coast of Iceland.
The best part of this hotel was that, when we walked outside at night, we saw the Northern Lights! It was even more spectacular than we had seen a few days earlier. We were in such a secluded area which really made the lights and stars pop. It was so magical that we stood outside on the rather brisk night and watched for hours. Book this hotel here.
We made our way back down the glacier as the sun was setting, enhancing the magic of the day. For tour information, click here.
The next morning, we walked around Reykjavik one last time before going to the airport. We were sad to see our trip come to an end but looked forward to reflecting on the fantastic time we had. For this trip's full itinerary, click here.
