Default Narrowing down vacation ideas

Has anyone been to Iceland?

It's pretty much at the top of our list for our vacation this May. Iceland Air flies directly from Orlando to Iceland which is awesome- no layovers! We may also fly from Iceland to London for a couple of days, and then fly from London to Orlando (all through Iceland Air).

We'd rent a car (of course) and stay in a few places around the country. There's one main highway which connects in a circle around Iceland.

There are itineraries listed in guide books and online, but I'd like to hear any details from people on here who have been.

The other places that we're considering are Bolivia, Peru, and Alaska. The high elevation in Peru and Bolivia is my big concern- I have asthma and I don't want to have issues breathing the whole time. I spoke with my doctor about it last year and she said it shouldn't be a problem, but it still worries me.

So... experiences with visiting any of these?

My sister visited Alaska. She really enjoyed herself... however that's all I really have to add to this.

I haven't been there, but Anthony Bourdain did an episode there (No Reservations), and it was AWESOME! Maybe you could find it online somewhere? It's on my bucket list, too!

I would totally do Iceland!!! And take lots of pictures for me.

ETA: If you go, then you totally have to ride Icelandic horses because they have the coolest gates EVER! And take pictures of that too.

Flying from FL to AK is extremely expensive usually. My boyfriends parents live in AK (he was born and raised there) and own a condo in FL but they don't go often because the flight alone is pretty costly. Sometimes international air is even less expensive, the last couple times they went back home to Ireland(mom was born there) it was cheaper.

That said, Alaska, the small part I have been to is beautiful! I'd go again in a heart beat.

I'm from Alaska and its pretty amazing, but go to Iceland. Peru is supposed to be awesome too, my brother loved it.
If you guys really can't decide, you can send me somewhere and I'll tell you how it is.

Go to Iceland. Trust me. Bring money, small island countries can be expensive.

I've never been to any of those places, but Zach went to Iceland and loved it, and so did a few of my other friends. Zach did a puffin boat tour, swam in some hot springs, and rode horses...not sure what else he did there. The pictures are beautiful.

I would love to go to Peru, though!
