Iceland for beginners

Three days ago, we celebrated The First Day of Summer in Iceland. The summer here has nothing in common with the summer that most people imagine, but still – everybody is excited about it. And no wonder why: the temperature is rising, the landscape is getting covered in vivid colours, and days are becoming extremely long.

To me, the first day of summer is also kind of a border between touristic and non-touristic periods. Unless you enjoy an unbearable crowd and absurd prices, I believe that the most popular places are worth visiting just before the second half of April.

Below is a short guide for those who have very limited time, cannot go too far away from Reykjavik, but want to have a smattering of Iceland and its mesmerizing nature.
