Iceland is a stark and severe environment, yet somehow the most beautiful plants and animals thrive there. Here are a few of my favorite flowers and plants.
It’s hard to believe such beautiful flowers and plants can survive in such a harsh climate, but when we visited we marveled at how beautiful is was! I don’t know much about plants. You certainly wouldn’t want to leave yours in my care for long, but I do love viewing them. Here are some of the gorgeous flowers and greenery we encountered all over Iceland.
Iceland’s Plants are Spectacular
If you want to see flowers, you will want to go to Iceland in May, June, July, or August. Yes, that’s when the majority of people visit, but there’s a good reason for it. Summer lets you drive around without getting bogged down. The animals, and especially the Icelandic horses, are out in the pastures, and really even though there are plenty of tourists, it’s not as crowded as anywhere else you might think of going.
