(Best)Birthday (ever) in Iceland

So, I think I started my birthday pretty much perfect. I woke up as the sun was peaking through the curtains. I looked on my phone, 6.30 AM, I must of been more excited for my birthday than I thought. The sound of water clattering down outside my window, I moved the curtain slightly letting the light sneak in. There it was, I believe the nicest view I have ever woken up to. Two meters away was the waterfall Skogafoss. I opened the door and stared at the waterfall for long enough not to realise that my boyfriend was lightning the candles on my birthday cake. I mean, what more do you want on your birthday than waking up and having chocolate cake for breakfast while staring at a breathtaking waterfall!

When you visit Skogafoss I definitely advice you to walk up the stairs located next to it to then get to the top. Not only do you get the most amazing view from there but if you go through the gate you will find to your right at the top of the stairs you can follow the river and you’ll be surprised by how beautiful it is!

But hey, it’s my birthday! Let’s not stop with our adventures here! We decided to go for a morning swim in one of the oldest swimming pools in Iceland! When parking the car you have to hike towards the bottom of the valley. After about 20 min of walking you will find the pool peaking around the corner. The temperature is around 36 degrees which is perfect for a nice swim with the most amazing view! As it is quite a popular spot I advice you to go either early in the morning or late in the evening – around summer time of course as it doesn’t get dark! (Crazy right?!)

After our swim we decided to get back on the road and continue driving for a bit. Now the bizarre thing is that you can go from the most amazing waterfalls in the middle of the mountains to a black sand beach in no time! With almost nobody on the beach we put our feet in the sand and enjoyed the sun for a bit.

The day only gets better when we continue our drive and move towards the east of the island. Being hypnotised by the incredible landscapes we almost drove past one of the most amazing views I have ever seen. There is a small parking next to road 1 where you will have to park and walk towards the water. Trust me, you don’t want to miss this stop. It is mind blowing, I have never seen anything like it!

Next stop: Fjaðrárgljúfur. This is a canyon in the south east which is an absolute must to go and see!! The canyon is 100m deep and 2 km long, which makes you feel really, but really small. Go on, try and walk next to the edge, guaranteed you’ll feel your knees getting weak!

After spending the afternoon at the most amazing place we decided to get back on the road and continue following road 1. As we continued driving the beautiful landscapes started to fade a little as if a slight fog was creeping over the ground. This slight fog became more dense by the minute and it was not long until we found ourselves in the middle of a great big cloud not being able to see further than 1 meter. Now I have to say it was not the most comfortable ride as you ride upon a steep mountain and can’t see where or when the turn or edge is going to appear. – But, trust me, it was worth all the anxious and sweat attacks.

As we drove higher and higher we finally got to a point that was totally unexpected, we got to the top. We were now driving on top of the cloud and saw the sun going down behind the hills. This was the most scary but beautiful ride of my life. I can happy say, this was the best birthday ever.
