Iceland: A Stunning Destination

Iceland is a stunning destination with a diverse range of activities for all travelers. However, as a land of breathtaking landscapes and geothermal wonders, Iceland is no stranger to the raw power of nature. While the stunning vistas and geothermal energy have long been a source of fascination, the volcanic activity also poses a significant threat. As recently as February 2024, Iceland experienced continued volcanic activity, however, that should not stop you from visiting the majestic beauty of this frozen wonderland.

In addition, Iceland is known for being a safe place for tourists to travel and enjoys a very low crime rate.  As a woman, this is a nice travel perk, so whether you are traveling alone or with friends, you can enjoy your stay without too much worry.  Keep in mind that like most island countries, it can get quite pricey.  Food and accommodations will set you back quite a bit economically, so rooming with a friend, might help save you a few dollars.

Another good reason to go with a friend is the terrain can get tricky and some areas are desolate, so it is important to have a good guide with you or someone to assist you in case it becomes necessary.
