We have long dreamed of visiting Iceland. The terrain looked positively alien – we flew over everything from green pasture, to strange rock formations and ice capped mountains. I promised myself I’d be back (for more than just a plane change). Fast forward to this summer and that promise came true. I was given the opportunity to travel to Rejkavik and attend the Secret Solstice Festival. The festival is truly one-of-a-kind. Not limited to sprawling festival grounds, events also took place inside glaciers, rock tunnels, and on a boat under the midnight sun.
Why visiting Iceland is good for you
Having not long returned home from Norway, I was fairly relaxed about this trip to Iceland. I was not worried about the fact that the weather was going to prevent us from seeing the Northern Lights and neither was I worried about the cold and the snowfalls that were predicted. As I settled into my Iceland Air comfy seat and watched the complimentary movies and television, and looking up the best things to do in Iceland, I felt relaxed and ready to have a great road trip with three good friends. I was not prepared to fall in love. I was not prepared to be googling ‘Moving to Iceland’. But that is what five nights in Iceland will do to a person.
