Experience Iceland, a Photo Diary

There's so much to share about Iceland that we wanted to give you some of our favorite photographic takeaways in hopes of helping inspire you to begin planning your Iceland Getaway. We also shared how we booked this trip (unexpectedly!) here and shared some tips on making the one day Golden Circle filled with magical sights you'll see here. 

Before you embark on this photographic journey here's a quick tip about traveling to Iceland:

Iceland Air let's you take up to 7 nights as a long layover while traveling to one of 26 European destinations. So take a day to soak in the Blue Lagoon or take another day and chase waterfalls driving the Golden Circle.

You can even snorkel between the two exposed plates. Which we did!
