Icelandair has been heavily promoting its free stopover policy, which allows travelers to explore Iceland for up to seven nights without paying an additional fee.
The airline even offers dedicated “Stopover Buddies”: locals who will help travelers spot the best hidden gems of the country.
The airline recently launched a photo hub to showcase more than 90,000 photos and videos taken by travelers that capture the country’s breathtaking landscapes.
From cascading waterfalls and cave parties to magnificent shots of the Northern Lights, here are some of our favorites.
In less than a week I'll be back in Iceland and I can't wait. For this #TBT I'm looking back at my pictures from the Blue Lagoon from August 2013. This view never gets old and neither does Iceland. This will be my sixth visit to this magical country and I can't wait. While I'm looking forward to dipping my toes back in geothermal waters, my fingers (and toes) are crossed in hopes that I'll finally get to see those elusive Northern Lights. Wish me luck! Have you visited Iceland and the Blue Lagoon? #ig_iceland #iamtb #everydayiceland #absoluteiceland #visiticeland #mystopover #instaiceland #igiceland #discovericeland #bestoficeland #loves_iceland

It's only 2-3℃ during the spring of Iceland. Every time I took of my down jacket to take these photos, it's just feel like I'm a exhibitionism. People always come and ask me whether I took photos for magazine. I answered them very cool " no, just for fun"
