A Gay couple traveling Iceland: For about 21 days the roads and secrets of Iceland became our home. The journey from one to the next stunning moment in surreal nature felt everlasting. Time did not matter when Northern Lights enlighten star-bright nights for a small eternity. Like green rain showers in the sky far far away floating over the countryside. Just be and do not think about what will come tomorrow nor what will happen when you are back home. Be in Iceland. This country will challenge you hard enough with its beauty not to cry while you are driving along abounded roads listening to pure Icelandic music. But believe us, you will cry. Tears are a part of Iceland. Tears of joy and happiness to be in uncountable one-time moments that will belong only to you. Our gay travels to the North European Island Iceland was an overwhelming experience. So pure, so unique and sometimes so alone. This country will challenge you hard enough with its beauty not to cry while you are driving along abounded roads listening to pure Icelandic music. But believe us, you will cry. Tears are a part of Iceland. Tears of joy and happiness to be in uncountable one-time moments that will belong only to you.
We started our Trip to Iceland in Reykjavik, the Icelandic capital in the Western part of the island. After some wonderful days around Nordic Architecture, we hit the road towards the famous Golden Circle with spectacular waterfalls, the Geysir, and our first nights camping in September. Next stop on our list was Vík with its famous black beaches. Here we found the last Puffins of the season, the national birds of Iceland. Our trip broad us further and further East always along the Ring Road 1. We arrived at Skaftafell National Park with gigantic glaciers and glacier lakes. Time for a hike over thousands of years old ice formations and a Zodiac Boat Tour over the Lagoon Jökulsárlón. Stunning, seriously stunning! The following days can be described by abandoned nature of East Iceland with its narrow and steep valleys, hot springs, and incredibly beautiful landscapes before we arrived at Lake Myvatn in the center of Iceland for some Ice Cave explorations and a Volcano bus trip to Askja. Less than one hour away from Lake Myvatn, it was time for some Whale Watching in Dalvík and Húsavík in the North of Iceland and, of course, the perfect region for Northern Lights hunting. On our way further west, we stopped in Varmahlíð for some Icelandic horseback riding and White Water Rafting in Skagafjörð. The last days we spent on Snæfellnsnes Peninsula, with the world famous volcano. Jules Verne found here the entrance to the center of the Earth. Maybe you will too?
