A 9-day itinerary to Iceland – a slow travel Icelandic adventure

Iceland has been a popular destination for several years. I remember when the madness began and Iceland started to break travel records. Suddenly everyone wanted to go there and I do not blame them. It is a different, very beautiful world. A trip to this alien-looking country has been on my bucket list for a while but somehow I took my time to make the move and get planning. After all a trip is only as good as your company and I finally managed to find the right one. There are many Iceland itineraries on the internet, making you drive for hours in order to see the whole island.
