2012/2018: I visited iceland on two separate occasions for a total of 4 days. The first trip in 2012 was via an adventure boat from greenland. Iceland was my disembarking point and I took advantage of this to hire a car with a few friends from the boat and explore some of the island. The 2nd trip was enroute to the Faroe islands, when I agan rented a car and explored iceland.

I don’t think I have given iceland a fair shake with the few days I have spent there. Iceland has a lot to offer to the adventerous traveler and I will definitely be back to explore its wild eastern half to see more of its volcanes, ice caves and hiking scenery.
