Iceland in a long weekend

The following recs are from my good friend Angela. Along with a few other friends, we spent an epic 4 days in one of the worlds most unique and incredible places. Below is her recommended itinerary. Click the links on each day to view her expanded recommendations.

Recently I cannot get online without seeing incredible pictures of Iceland. From Justin Bieber’s music videos to every travel post on Twitter. It is THE place to go right now. With incredibly cheap flights from WOW air there is no reason not to go. Last year I took a trip with some friends to explore. Since then people have been asking where we went and what we did I thought I would share the details to inspire travel plans. I definitely cannot pronounce most of these places but I can tell you they are worth the trip.
