Iceland, though cold, is a fantastic place to propose to your partner for many reasons. Whether it’s the attraction of the Aurora Borealis or the natural hot springs, it’s a location that oozes romance and wanderlust. Below, we’ve put together a list of the five best places to propose to your future life partner.
Yeah, we can’t pronounce it either but you can use the English translation, Cave Dweller! Essentially, Gljúfrabúi is a private cave nestled between the two waterfalls Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss, so you’ll have the choice of two wonderful backdrops when you decide to pop the question. To get to this idyllic location, you can either follow a steep pathway up a cliff or you can wade through the streams that eventually meet with the waterfalls.
Langjökull Ice Tunnel
The Langjökull Ice Tunnel is a manmade tunnel that runs deep inside of the Langjökull glacier. Once inside, it forms the perfect icy backdrop to any proposal. In fact, you can even get married here – two birds one stone? Just make sure the wrap up warm!
The Diamond Beach at Jökulsárlón
This is the perfect location – especially if you’re proposing with a blingy ring! Diamond Beach is famous for its unique ‘ice rocks’, that would have originally been part of a lagoon. The icy sculptures are off-set against the dark, black sands of the beach, creating a unique and unforgettable setting.
Underneath The Northern Lights
Nothing is quite as special as being able to propose under the magnificence of the Northern Lights. Just bear in mind that the lights often appear without warning and subject to weather conditions, so if you’re spending a few days in Iceland, try and keep the ring on you at all times. The best time to see the Northern lights is between September and Mid-April, however, it can’t be guaranteed, so make sure you have a backup plan just in case!
For a truly picturesque setting, Snaefellsnes is a great place to propose to your partner. The beauty of nature does more than enough to back this location, whether it’s by the magnificent waterfalls or over-looking the glorious landscape – photographers at the ready!
