Every year we come across a couple of best travel destinations lists. Condé Nast, CNN, Lonely Planet, all show great destinations for this year, but here we will show you why Iceland should be your top destination for 2020.
Enjoy the hot swimming pools and pots (no matter what the weather is)
It isn’t easy to decide what to do in Iceland. But going to the hot swimming pools is a must. The best is that you can go to most of them all year round no matter what the weather is. Go to the outdoor natural pools like Seljavallalaug, local swimming pools like Sundhöllin, or try something more luxurious and exclusive as Krauma. They are all worth it and pleasant. Going to swimming pools has been part of the Icelandic culture for centuries. Perhaps you will want to know more about them here.
Do the hike of your life: 23km in Fimmvörðuháls
Hiking is exciting and way better with a view like the one in Fimmvörðuháls. With a total of 23km, this trail is one of the most popular ones in Iceland for nature lovers, hikers and even, non-hikers. But we recommend at least for people to have good health and all the desire to do it. The starting point usually is in Þórsmörk and finishes in Skogar. During the route, you will reach an elevation of 3,280 feet (1000m), and the entire journey can take from 8 to 12 hours. Depending on when you are planning to come to Iceland, take into account the trail is only open from mid-June to mid-September. Want more information about this hike?
