Dream Trip to Reykjavik

As a part of my long standing partnership and friendship with the innovative (and nice) people at TripCreator. I am starting a new feature on Stuck in Iceland called Dream Trips to Iceland. The whole concept of TripCreator is that you use their innovative software and web site to create your own dream trip to Iceland. We have put together a few ideas for great trips in Iceland  that we are sharing on  this site over the next few weeks.

Iceland Travel

The first trip is four day takes you around Reykjavik and the surrounding area.

Day 1

Blue Lagoon 
Iceland´s number one tourist attractions. All travelers that have tried it have said to me that they love it.

Hallgrimskirkja cathedral in the center of Reykjavik.

Hallgrímskirkja Church

This Gothic cathedral echoes the basalt columns found at such places as Reynisfjara beach. It is probably the most photographed building in Iceland and deservedly so.

Sólfar with the yacht Octopus in the background. It is owned by the billionaire Paul Allen.

A personal favourite of mine. Try to be there at sunset.
