For our seventh entry, we're traveling to Iceland- a country we explored for ten days in 2016!

Iceland Waterfalls – A Guide to 7 of Our Favorite Cascades

Iceland is a stunning country, there is no doubt about that. Head in any direction and you're going to have the opportunity to explore beautiful coastlines, rugged scenery, waterfalls, farms, and the possibility to go on glacier walks in Iceland to name a few!

In fact, during our ten days driving the Ring Road we were able to do all of these and then some, and at times we were just awe-struck with how the beauty of this country is seemingly never ending.

One of those we got our fill of in Iceland was the beautiful, breathtaking waterfalls that make Iceland such a popular tourist destination.

The geography and climate of Iceland make this island nation a hot spot for dozens of famous waterfalls. But when planning a trip to Iceland, how do you narrow down which ones to visit? Here are some of the most beautiful waterfalls we've been to along with what you need to know before you go.

Iceland Ring Road – Tips and Advice for Your Driving Itinerary

When it comes to an Iceland road trip, you would think that driving around the Ring Road would be a simple thing to plan. The country is an island, the Ring Road is the only road that goes around it in its entirety, and generally speaking everyone goes on the same tried-and-true path around the country.

All of these things are true, except for that last point.

While it is true that all Ring Road travelers do circle the country, the amount of time you spend on the Ring Road will vary. You could blast through it all in about five days without leaving the Ring Road at all. You could add on one detour (perhaps our favorite detour to Borgarfjordur Eystri to see the puffins) if you have limited time. Or you could spend up to a month exploring all the back roads and highlands- all while only barely touching the Ring Road at all!

As such, planning your dream itinerary will end up being a lot more difficult than you might have previously thought and we have three important tips to keep in mind when planning a visit based on our recent experience in Iceland.
