Time to take a look at exotic vacation locations. They may sound crazy and far-fetched at times, but who knows? Maybe you’ll find someplace new and exciting for your honeymoon (or if you’re like me, just a cool vacation getaway)!

So, are you an explorer? Adventurer? Perhaps a crazy rock lover? A best friend (she’s that last one, the crazy rock lover) of mine, Mollie, recently vacationed to Iceland; a strange place to go, considering that not many can picture more than…well…ice when the place comes to mind. But those who have gone to seek Iceland’s rocky beaches, dramatic cliffs, and gorgeous countryside know better.

Iceland is an island one-third larger than Ireland or Scotland. Eleven percent of its land is covered by glaciers, one of them called Vatnajökull (say that ten times fast), which is the largest in Europe! There is plenty of volcanic and geothermal activity.

Mollie had one fantastic trip, and took plenty of photos to prove it!

Here are a few:

Honeymoon Rocky Beaches in Iceland

Honeymoon Icelandic Beach Rock Formations

These incredible rocks appear at first to be man-made, but these pillar-like formations are actually created by molten basalt that cools and cracks in a particular way. Pretty awesome!

Honeymoon Destinations Icelandic Blue River

Honeymoon Huge Waterfall in Iceland

Honeymoon Gorge and Waterfalls in Iceland

It’s definitely a place of beauty. There are plenty of epic waterfalls and national parks to visit. You don’t need to be an expert hiker to appreciate the sights! The natural hot springs and pools are something to look into if you're searching for an epic spa getaway.

Wondering what else there is to do there? Head over here to take a peek.

Happy travels!
