#icelandwithaview – the best snapshots of Iceland

I continue to be amazed by the community in this little corner of the internet! From our Facebook Live Q+A sessions to customizing your Iceland trips, I have seen many a traveler come to this beautiful land of Fire and Ice.

It’s also been SO fun to follow along with your Iceland journeys through our Team hashtag #icelandwithaview! This hashtag has been used over 3,500 times! Keep it up, I love seeing what you are up to.

So I want to celebrate YOU today, Team Iceland, by saying thank you. Thank you for being a part of this community and sharing your trips with all of us. You have traveled to all corners of Iceland and captured its beauty in your photos.

Here are some of the best images from the different regions in Iceland.

Reykjavik

Our favorite capital city, complete with its quirky buildings, colorful street art, and tasty restaurant scene. I just love this photo from Courtney of the Map Maven with Reykjavik’s most famous landmarks!

Golden Circle

Obviously most people hit up the Golden Circle when they travel to Iceland. So it was tough to choose just one photo! But one of my favorite places prevails with Camille’s photo of Kerið volcanic crater. That blue water gets me every time!

South Iceland

The South coast definitely has some incredible scenery. But when I saw this aerial photo from @unseenimages I fell in love all over again! I love the way it captures the dramatic landscape with the glaciers and its braided rivers. Incredible!

Westman Islands

The Westman Islands are often forgotten about travelers, but that should not be the case! This archipelago off the South coast is one big gem itself. Shejil’s photo shows the remains of the volcano eruption that happened in 1973. Although a lot of land and homes were destroyed, what remains is a huge red lava field that you can hike around in!

Landmannalaugar

The beautiful highlands of Iceland have SO much to offer! Landmannalaugar is just one piece of the highlands, but a stunning one at that. The iconic painted mountains and unlimited hiking trails are a favorite among campers and backpackers. Thanks for sharing, Lian!

Thorsmork

Sarah captured some amazing photos during her time in Iceland! I love how this photo depicts how massive Thorsmork is. Glaciers, rivers, and mountains – a never ending playground for serious hikers!

East Iceland

Oh the East – easily one of my favorite and far less traveled areas of Iceland. The roads that wind in and out of the fjords are breathtaking with gems that are just waiting to be discovered! Shelley saw SO much of the country, and I loved following along with her trip!

North Iceland

North Iceland takes wide open spaces to a whole new level. The landscape is so crazy, often times you feel like you’re driving on Mars! It’s also a region full of geothermal activity, with steam coming right out of the ground! Great capture, Lisa!

Westfjords

The Westfjords are the best fjords as they say! Although many people don’t’ take the time to drive into this area, it’s gaining popularity for sure. Rebecca nails it with my favorite waterfall of all time – Dynjandi! Thanks for sharing your beautiful photo 🙂

Snaefellsnes Peninsula

Snaefellsnes has been named “Mini Iceland” for a good reason. Cliffs, waterfalls, glaciers, and lava fields – this little peninsula has it all! I just love this photo of the coast near Arnarstapi – who’s ready to move in?!

    Thanks for sharing my photo of Eldfell in Westman Islands 🙂
    My favourite place in Iceland was Reynisfjara/Reynisdrangar – it was so beautiful and so eerie at the same time
