ICELAND: The Best Places to Visit for a Round Trip
The Best Places to Visit for a Round Trip
Our Trip in Iceland was from September 21th to October 1st 2019. We started from Verona to Milan and then we took a flight from Milan to Keflavik Airport with a stopover in Frankfurt.
In Keflavik airport we rented a Suzuki Jimny car from Blue Car Rental and we started our 2.500km Road Trip counterclockwise. It tooks from 2 to 4 hours each day.

NORTHERN LIGHTS: If you’re lucky you could see it. We saw two times on the north side of Iceland, more precisely close to Ocean Cape Cabins accomodations where we spent the night and at Kirkjufell. The best period to have more chances to see it goes from the end of September to the end of May. Here some of my favorite photos of Northern Lights:
