Best Iceland Routes For Content Creators
Driving is by far the best way to explore the otherworldly scenes of our country, giving you the ability to immerse yourself in the scenery at your own pace, all whilst in the comfort of your own vehicle.
In our recent article, we’ll be uncovering the best Icelandic routes for content creators which will elevate your creative profile. From serpentine fjords in the north to the hot smoking volcanoes of the south, there is an abundance of natural spectacles to take in which make for perfect content opportunities.
The Golden Circle
The infamous Golden Circle route is by far the most popular in Iceland with tourists and content creators alike. Starting in metropolitan Reykjavik, the 155-mile loop can be driven comfortably in one day, allowing you to take your time taking some unbeatable photo and video content. The highlights of this route include Thingvellir National Park, and Gullfoss, as well as an array of vast open spaces.
The South Coast
There are so many attractions lining the south coast of Iceland, including fantastical waterfalls which can rarely be found elsewhere. Whilst competition is incredibly high, Skógafoss is often recognised as the country’s prettiest waterfall, making for great content opportunities. We would also highly recommend making a stop at the photographer's paradise of Diamond Beach. This beautiful black basalt beach features perfect shards of crystal ice and floating glacial icebergs; a scene ideal for capturing dramatic shots for your feed.
The Ring Road
There’s nothing quite like a trip across Iceland’s Ring Road. This is the ultimate Iceland driving route, taking visitors on an adventure of a lifetime, showcasing the country’s icebergs, waterfalls and volcanoes. Most travellers start their Ring Road drive from Keflavik International Airport, from which drivers can opt for a clockwise or anticlockwise route. Top photo hotspot locations include the Sólheimasandur Plane Crash and Fjaðrárgljúfur Canyon. If you’re lucky, you may even get a glimpse of the majestic Northern Lights, too.
If you’re after something a little more remote, the eastern Fjords are definitely worth a visit. First, you can visit the small Icelandic village of Vopnafjörður, home to Selárlaug, a swimming pool on the banks of a salmon-filled river. The route is popular for animal watchers, with an array of birds and mammals which roam the rural lands. If you take a visit to the East Fjords, keep an eye out for reindeer! These large creatures have excellent photographic potential.
Sitting on Iceland’s western coast, Snæfellsnes Peninsula stretches 55 miles into the Atlantic Ocean. There are some astonishing natural pools to take a dip in, as well as hiking trails for the adventurous content creator. If you’re looking to capture some of Iceland's architecture and local culture, we’d recommend taking a visit to Stykkishólmur or Arnarstapi village.
