Let’s admit that we are all living in the world of big ambitions where experiencing something is not complete without telling the world about it. If you are one of those people who finds it hard to enjoy a great moment without taking a selfie or posting on Instagram, then you’ve come to the right place. Iceland is one of the most photogenic destinations in the world. Its icy glaciers, active volcanoes, awe-inspiring waterfalls, eerie hot springs and deep fjords provide many opportunities to indulge in the modern trend of selfie taking. It is almost impossible to take a bad shot as you travel from stunning views to astounding landscapes in the Land of Fire and Ice.The Iceland Selfie Marathon is the perfect trip for those who are big on ambition but short on time. This speedy journey around Iceland will have you ticking off bucket list items faster than you can say “Group selfie”. Take in all the major highlights and some tucked-away gems of this fabulous country. Let’s go … and tell the world – been there, done that, got a T-shirt! We know, you will be back.
