Alaska has wildlife. Iceland does not. Alaska is also closer and cheaper. Iceland looks kind of barren, but Denali and some parks in Alaska remind me of Shasta or other parks. They both have glaciers and I’m definitely interested in seeing those since I’ve never seen anything like that before. The Blue Lagoon in Iceland also seems cool. I’m not that excited about the waterfalls though since I feel like I’ve seen a lot of them. What would you recommend?
Alaska. Iceland is over-traveled and it's just driving from site to site, taking a few pics each time. It's hard to do any hikes that go into anything, not many trails. Blue lagoon is fine but just a seminatural spa place.
