Iceland was chosen as one of the top travel destinations of 2017, but there are a few important things you want to know before you get there.
Geothermal energy is used in cities like Reykjavík, so the natural spring water that goes to your shower from underground gives off the sulfuric odor. It is completely safe and ideal for cleaning.
Cold water does not have sulfuric properties, so feel free to fill the water bottle from your sink.
Before you dive into the bright blue geothermal spa, you must first use the facilities to take a shower. This is a rule. There are open showers without doors, but you can also find indoor showers if you prefer privacy.
Don't worry, you won't have to cut your hair. First, you can tie your hair to prevent it from getting wet. But if you are worried about getting wet accidentally, use the conditioner they provided as a mask and apply it to your hair as long as you are in the Blue Lagoon. Your hair will thank you for it.
You heard that right. There isn't any Starbucks in Iceland, but there is a great place to get drinks like coffee tea, Te & Kaffi.
You would think this fast food chain was taking over the world, but not in Iceland. But you will love the local cuisine.
A great place to buy them in Reykjavík is Bæjarins Beztu Pylsur, where you can get them with pylsusinnep and fried onions. However, you can also buy them at almost any gas station. They're also cheap, about $ 3.
For those who don't like to carry money with them, Iceland is a great destination.
The Icelandic Phallological Museum is in Reykjavík and houses penile pieces.
Many people prefer the 1330 km long tourist route to travel from one end of the country to the other. It is a great way to see beautiful landscapes and many places in the country. And if you're wondering, the driver's side is on the left.
Fun fact: "Bless bless" means "bye".
Whale hunting is part of Icelandic identity, while a survey by IFAW and Capacent Gallup reported that only 3.2% of Icelandic people eat whale meat. As of 2014, 18% of tourists eat whale meat to try traditional food.
Getting wet by accident means walking around in wet clothes all day, and nobody wants that.
In some cases, it can also appear in a big city like Reykjavik, but if you want a clearer show, look for the dark places!
