For this most recent trip to Iceland, we really wanted to explore more of the Eastern Coast which we haven’t had a chance to get to yet on our 3 previous trips. Unfortunately for us, a huge storm closed the road and blocked us off from that area, but we still got to explore a lot of beautiful Iceland in the snow! We started our first day there at Keflavik Airport, arriving in the early morning and picking up our rental car. Heading straight towards Vik, we drove through insane wind (that day gusts reached 75mph) and snow storms that came out of no where. We stopped randomly, took in waterfalls and churches with incredible backdrops, and just all around enjoyed one of our favorite countries!
If you’re headed on this route, here are a few spots I’d recommend stopping at along the way:
- Reynisfjara Beach
- Reynisdrangar Beach and Viewpoint
- Vik i Myrdal Church and scenic point

So crazy to see this area covered with snow – only seen it so far in high summer 🙂 Glad you made the most of the situation… in Iceland I suppose you’ve got to be prepared for anything.
Iceland looks so different in the Winter versus the Summer! This area in particular I think really changes and we’ve seen it now in both!
