The cost of living in Iceland is very high. As a isolated island on the Arctic, many are the factors that make tough the life of Icelandic people. Besides the weather conditions, the economy is still in a recovering process since the market crash in 2008.
The lack of luminosity from large urban centres and the high intensity of solar collisions in its atmosphere makes the Iceland one of the best spots to see the Aurora Borealis.
The very first question that people do to me when I talk about hunting northern lights is “What did you feel at seeing them?”, my answer: freezing!!
Heading north from Reykjavik, follow the Route 1 in the western coastline, so it’ll be easier to be guided until the famous Snæfellsnes peninsula, a beautiful national park.
First at all, driving in Iceland can be dangerous, especially after blizzards, roads become very slippery and there are very strong winds. It’s essentially necessary to drive (it’s cheaper and there very few tours towards West part) to visit this region.
It doesn’t matter if it’s summer or winter time, you’ll be fascinated to visit the variety of wonderful places that Iceland is home to. If you’re a travel lover, especially for nature, don’t miss any detail of this text.
