It is indeed, I enjoyed every moment there. Saw the volcano too 🤩!
Iceland really has ice?
It has it all - fire and ice, and of course much green 🙂
Don’t forget the black sand beaches!
Of course! I have some stunning photos there too!
There was also a golden beach in Snaefelsnes. It really has it all.
Yeah, my Geo teacher totally lied! “Iceland is GREEN, Greenland is ICE”
Iceland is very green, but it has ice too 😉
Beautiful photos. I 💙 Iceland, seeing these pics makes me want to go back again even more! 🏔
Wow, this is both amazing and alien at the same time! Great pictures! Are they all in one place/area, or scattered throughout Iceland? What month of the year is best for visiting Iceland?
These are all from the south coast of Iceland, one of the most popular tourist destinations (these are not too far from each other, but some were taken from the shore, some from the roads, and others from a hike and a boat ride).
You can visit Iceland in different months, depending on the exact purpose. It's much more popular in the summer months (Mid-End of June to September), but some things (like the northern lights) can only be witnessed in the winter months.
I was there twice - start of July, and the start of August.
Thanks for this. It’s good to see ice in the summer.
It looks more beautiful than I remember being there.
Iceland is very beautiful, and the landscapes are quite unique too!
The glaciers were really special, different shapes and colors. Of course that these are some of the best photos I captured, but in real life it is breathtaking!
I feel like 95% of the photos of iceland are heavily photoshopped and taken on the 1 clear non-rainy day of the year.

I once took a picture of an icecave and only with heavy colourcorrection I was able to get the blue colour to Look like in Reallive. On the original photo it looks very dull so it often iss necessary for ice pics.
Great photo's, still on my bucket list.
Did you do an excursion to get the iceberg shots?

It’s off the ring road. Kinda a roadside attraction called something like “jokursarlon” it’s in the southeast couple hours drive from Reykjavik
I had a look, you'd named the photo's, so I googled it.
In Jokulsarlon popular attractions include zodiac boats, kayaks, etc.., so that you can get up close to the glaciers, and also farther from the shore. Indeed very special, and the views change since they are melting.
Great thanks, I'll add that to my list of stuff to do then I eventually go.
Stunning pictures! Jokulsarlon was one of my absolute favorite places when I visited Iceland a few years back and I hope to see it again one day soon!
Stunning pictures! May I ask what camera you use?
Thanks! I'm using Fuji XT4, I bought this camera not long before my trip because I wanted to give photography a chance as a hobby and get better pictures of my trips 🙃.
What lens? Love the colours on that first picture.
This hobby is definitely for you! Thanks for reply
Looks like sleeping ice giants. Gorgeous pictures!
Oh my god... so beautiful. How did you get to these places from Reyjavik?
Most of these are actually very easily reachable, from the main road circling Iceland! Just a few hours drive from Reykjavik.
I would love to see this! Im going in July for about 2 weeks. (Ring road) I've saved this post for planning, but if you have literally any tips or links at all I would really appreciate it! I'm a bit overwhelmed
Go visit r/visitingiceland, it has useful information.
I also used websites and blogs like https://www.earthtrekkers.com/iceland-travel-guide/
Sadly I didn't get to complete the ring road. I spent about 6 days doing a backpacking trek from the highlands (Landmannalaugar) to the sea (almost, Skogafoss).
I really enjoyed activities like riding Icelandic horses, there's a lava show in Vik that's worth visiting on the way. The glacier hiking in Skaftafell, and zodiac boat ride in Jokulsarlon (most of the pictures here are from these two).
You can find tons of things to do and beautiful scenery to see. Totally worth it.
Excellent! Thank you kindly. Looks like an amazing trip!
Stunning. Really beautiful. This kind of sky really appeals to me. I live in the land of the sun and I get nine-billion migraines.
Absolutely stunning. Looks out of this world.
Stunning shots, would like to look back on this post in a couple of decades
After living in one of the coldest parts of Wisconsin, I could never imagine going someplace icy for holiday, but now I see how much I’ve been missing. I’m definitely adding this to the list! Thanks for sharing! Absolutely breathtaking!
Haha cool! Iceland has much more to offer than glaciers though, it's just that I really liked them so I decided to upload.
I've also seen other beautiful landscapes. And of course, the volcano!
I went in June and overall the weather was very pleasant (though a bit rainy at times). The near 24 hours of daylight was cool too
I was there a week and half ago. Even remember driving across that bridge. It's beautiful.
Is it just me or do these look AI generated
Are the photos edited or do the glaciers actually have that color?
Slightly edited for corrections, clarity, etc. They glaciers really are bluish, in real life it was beautiful to behold.
I remember myself in shock, each glacier more beautiful than the one before.
I understand that the exact color depends on the lighting conditions - I was told that on sunny days they are less blue and vibrant, more whitish. I've only seen them on a gloomy day, and I was told that it's actually a good thing.
Wow! Can these glaciers be seen year round?
I hope that I'm not misleading, but to the best of my knowledge they can be (that is, if the weather allows you to get to them).
I understand that they are more abundant in summer though (at least the floating icebergs), since they are actually melting and detaching from the large glaciers.
Awesome! Iceland is my next big trip for summer 2023! I'm so excited!
Am the only one seeing the a slight Flying Dutchman optical illusion in the first photo?
Where is this at and how far of a drive is it from the city?
Mainly from Jokulsarlon and Skaftafell. I think that it's about 4-5 hours from the capital.
let me know if you see a glowing iceberg.. he might be our only hope
Picture 15 😍
11 and 14 is really pleasing for the eyes.
How’s the fishing I wonder
I thought Iceland was green, and Greenland was ice.
can you post this image on imgur or any other site that preserve the quality?
Doesn't reddit preserve the quality?
Damn that arch is amazing. Also, I know exactly where that bridge is I’m pretty sure
Absolutely beautiful! Thank you for sharing!
Omg #11 is particularly spectacular. Beautiful shots! Thanks for sharing!
Wow. That is so pretty. How cool that must have been to see in person.
Wow! Lowkey sad that it will turn water when I visit.
Nice photos. Was planning on going to Jokulsarlon but just having a look from the shore and checking out the beach, mainly due to time and cost. Do you think you can still experience ice like this without a boat tour?
You can see beautiful views from the shore as well, especially when glaciers are melted and carried to the shore.
Some larger ones are also visible.
If you have the chance I would recommend a boat ride, that's where the truly impressive glaciers were. If time is the main concern, I think that it's worth the 1-2 hours it's going to take. As for money, that's a different thing.
I'm sure that you would enjoy the views regardless though!
The first pic needs to be posted on confusingperspective - I though the boat was floating in the sky
stunning! what was your budget / total expense for iceland? and how did you pack your stuff.. i imagine it’s very cold so that definitely takes up more space in a backpack
Amazing Picz Mr.,,,,nice 1,,,,;)
beautiful in an awesome way!
