#MyStopover – A journey through Iceland

#MyStopover – A journey through Iceland

This post is almost two months in the making. Yikes. Things have been rather busy in the Cannon house, but I would be remiss to skip out on a write up of our last adventure. So let’s talk logistics… For our most recent vacation, we were all set on going to Paris, however we heard about an option to do an extended layover in Iceland on our way over there. This is affectionately referred to as “#MyStopover” on Icelandair and it allows for a layover of up to 7 days with no extra cost to your ticket. Cool right?

We flew into Reykjavik and spent most of our time on the Golden Circle and southern portion of Iceland. Renting a car and driving ourselves was very clutch, allowing us to stop when/where we wanted although the price of car rentals (and almost everything in Iceland) is high. The guide we used for the drive is here.

Now for the weather. We went the last weekend of April and when we checked, we saw it was going to be upper 30’s to low 40’s. No big deal for the Utahns. Welllll it was windy. Very windy. And it must be like this often because the rental car places all say to hold your car door when you open to make sure it doesn’t swing and whatever is beside your car.

As far as the sights go, I am not sure exactly what I was expecting, but I can tell you that Iceland’s terrain was a surprise. As you can see, it’s basically an incredible waterfall tour. I’d like to go back both in the winter and the summer to see how different it is at other times. Here are some of the pictures and videos from #MyStopover . Definitely can’t wait to go back to Iceland!
