Destination Iceland: Dreaming of Reykjavik

Iceland Northern Lights

If you are anything like me, you probably have a Europe bucket list or at least a few places in that continent that you dream of visiting before you die. Visiting cities like Paris, Florence, Venice, Rome, Vienna, and Prague among many others and exploring their many attractions will never be too cliché for me to want to see them with my own eyes. The list keeps getting longer faster than I could tick off something from it. But it is always part of the fun, coming up with new spots to add.

Iceland has always been among those places that are on top of my must-see list a lot of reasons — stunning and breathtaking ones. The culture, nature scenery, and wealth of natural wonders are just some of its biggest draws. But if I were to pick one reason why I need to go, it would be for the chance to see the Northern Lights with my own eyes. And to do that, a visit to the country’s capital city seems like a great spot to begin what I imagine to be an unforgettable journey.

I am thinking of spending some time doing an I heart Reykjavik walking tour, one in which I plan to explore everything about the city that makes tourist fall in love with it. I will try to see and experience as much as I can within the city and whatever nearby attractions I could squeeze in before I set out chasing the Northern Lights. And I hope that with good timing and a bit of luck, I will find myself at the right place at the right time when those magnificent lights appear in the sky.
