Skógafoss

Rangárþing eystra, South Iceland, Iceland

Coordinates: 63.52972, -19.51389

Got up bright and early on day 4 to snap this picture with not a soul insight. My first time exploring this waterfall was on my 2nd day of my ultimate road trip. The hike up 200+ steps to the top of the waterfall was incredible. Tip: Bring a lock with you so you can make a wish and lock it to the guardrail at the top. -Hop the fence that says "do not enter" right behind the view point (trust me everyone does it) you'll find more waterfalls and you'll feel like you're hiking in the clouds!

Silfra

Valhallarvegur, Bláskógabyggð, South Iceland, Iceland

Coordinates: 64.25472, -21.11889

To start off day 2 of my ultimate road trip I took a dip in some glacier water! The feeling I got knowing I was literally able to touch the fissure of the North American and Eurasian continents was indescribable. Although my lips were frozen afterwards, swimming in the clearest water I have ever seen was a priceless and unforgettable experience. Tip: This excursion was the only guided tour I booked on my ultimate road trip. I booked it through www.Dive.is for 15,999ISK which is about $150 and I was able to meet them at the dive location. The tour guides were great, very knowledgeable and kind. I was the only African American female as well as the only one who arrived solo. With that being said I felt like the guides made sure I didn't get left behind or lost. They were very friendly and hospitable.

Gullfoss Falls, 801 Selfossi, Iceland, Reykjavík, Iceland

Pingvellir

Þingvellir, Iceland

Coordinates: 64.25555, -21.12848

My first stop in my self guided tour of the Golden Circle! This landmark is a beautiful combination of small waterfalls, and rifts in the earths surface. Tip: whatever you do wear a mask or mosquito net around your face because the flies that swarm near the water and pretty much all over this location are horrendously annoying. Trust me. -You also have to pay for parking here, it's not that much but if you don't want to pay just park on the main road.
