In recent years, Iceland has gone from relatively unknown to the top of every travelers wish list. Globetrotters hop flights regularly to check out sites like Skógafoss Water Fall (a must-see even when it’s frozen ), the Sólheimasandur Plane Wreck and of course, the famed Blue Lagoon. All of these adventures (and more) are what brought flight attendant Blessing (@blessingbeyondborders), and yes that’s her real name, to the popular country to soak up some blues.
Blessing’s photos had us ready to catch a flight, so naturally, we did a little research and created an exclusive guide so that you could catch the blues in Iceland too.
Welcome to Iceland
Iceland is a country known for its long summer days with nearly 24-hours of sunshine, and seemingly endless nights during the winter. Travelers from around the world flock to its borders for the chance to experience bucket list-worthy activities like watching the northern lights and taking a dip in the iconic Blue Lagoon. Pack your wallet no matter what time of year you visit since Iceland is far from a budget-friendly escape. Just 1 Icelandic Krona (ISK) equals only $.80 USD.
Reykjavík is the capital and largest city of Iceland.
Reykjavík sparkles with life. The pretty, colourful buildings, surrounding silvery seas and charming small scale are lovely.

Although dining in Iceland can be pricey with even the cheapest meals in the city costing around $15 USD per person, you simply can't leave without trying out locally sourced foods like, Icelandic Arctic char fish.
The Blue Lagoon is undoubtedly Iceland's most famous tourist attraction and makes for amazing IG worthy photos. Take a dip in the lagoon's geothermal waters for a simple spa treatment that will leave your skin feeling like butter.
