Iceland solo travel as a female in 2020 why did I do it? Is Iceland safe to travel alone? What are the best places to travel alone in Iceland? Is Iceland safe for solo female travelers? How much money for a trip to Iceland? Iceland travel guide for safe travels? Is the Blue Lagoon worth it? Which Airlines fly to Iceland? How is Dating in Iceland? I have you covered with all of this information and more in this post.
First, I traveled solo as a female in Iceland because of Adventure and the thrill of the unknown in a beautiful winter wonderland. I crave the road less taken, partaking in unfamiliar excursions, dating people of new cultures, and looking fashionable while simultaneously. I plan on sharing my outfits, tours, cost, dating, food and more importantly my opinion of the land of Fire and Ice….Iceland.
You can purchase different package found at . Each package includes at least 1 free face mask and 1 drink (alcoholic or non-alcoholic). There are bridges, two entrances to the blue lagoon, a blue lagoon shop, and a restaurant. I arrive at 830am and didn’t leave until 415pm. I truly had an amazing time there.
Now, let’s talk about Icelandic men in just one minute for anyone wanting to know if I fell in love with a Viking. Icelandic men are tall!!!!!! The average height for an Icelandic man is 5’11. I went out with a guy in Iceland that was 6’7. Yes, he was a tall tree of fine male handsomeness (is that even a word, lol). Icelandic men are also brutally honest. You will know their whole life story on the first date. I won’t lie, sometimes I wish they refrained from telling me everything on the first date although I love honesty. No one wants to hear that your ex girlfriend stabbed you and went to jail for you having a collapsed lung. I went out with a rapper, philanthropist, chief marketing executive, and a teacher. I had 1 man impress me on the date. I do like chivalry and every woman is different. I did not go out with several men because their idea of a date was driving around in a car and I won’t do that with a stranger. Many men in Iceland have 1-2 children by mid twenties. Icelandic culture is big on family and many couples do not get married. I also had one guy expect me to pay on the 2nd date. I was told that Icelandic women prefer to pay for themselves. Iceland is an egalitarian society.There are zero degrees of separation in Iceland. I had 2 individual dates where 1 woman on each day, came into the establishment and said hello to my date (they were friends/acquaintances). Icelandic men also let you know their intentions early on when dating because I had 3 of the 4 men I went out with want to date me exclusively and I just met them. It was a world wind but I enjoyed the experiences.
Unfortunately, I was tired most nights after tours and did not get to see the nightlife. I really wanted to go to the Prikid which plays hip hop. I did enjoy mexican/thai/asian fusion almost nightly for dinner, which are my preference. More about Icelandic food is above in my free ebook. However, a little preview is that Icelandic food eaten often are soups, fish, and even horse meat.
All the outfits that I wore above links are on the free ebook titled ” ICELAND GUIDE REVEALED”. Fun fact: Iceland never gets colder than 32 degrees farenheit which is 0 degrees celsius. However, the wind on average could be 10-25 mph (miles per hour) and on a snowstorm 25-40mph. Please wear thermal clothing under your main clothes. I wore thermals under my fleece lined spandex. I wore thermal jumpsuits, thermal socks, fleece lined hooded safari parka, 3-in-1 windproof/waterproof coats and windproof ski pants. I had on moon boots, insulated waterproof snow boots, and even insulated high heeled booties. I was fashionable but warm. Feel free to send me a note if you need assistance. The last thing I want to say is that I truly loved my Icelandic trip and every Icelandic person I met was truly approachable and kind. I want to visit Iceland in the summer because I know it’s beauty will bloom even more when the sun is out longer. I truly would do this trip all over again. It has been voted the safest place in the world and I truly felt 100% safe my entire trip.
