30 Photos to Inspire Your Icelandic Wanderlust

When Matt and I decided to book a honeymoon trip to Iceland we heard got a lot of responses from our family and friends that were along the lines of “Why?” and “What is there to even see there?”

Recently, Iceland has become a very popular travel destination for millennials, and it’s actually really easy to see why! So, sit back and let the photos do the talking. Here are 25 of them to inspire your Icelandic wanderlust.

Check out the street art scene.


Explore the largest glacier in Europe.


Hang out in Harpa.


Look out from the edge of Iceland and see all the way to Scotland (not really but you can use your imagination).

Then climb to the top of the Hallgrímskirkja to get the best view of the colorful houses of Reykjavik.


Hang out in a crater lake.


Make friends with the famed Icelandic horses.


Chase some waterfalls.
