Seljalansfoss in Iceland
 I never tire of hearing people's description of seeing the Northern Lights for the first time, or the glacier lagoon of Jökulsárlón. The beautiful thing about Iceland is that around every bend you find your next great postcard picture.

The Vestman Island

Winter storm in Iceland
'Travel Bucket List' classics
  • The Vestman Island is home to one of the worlds largest puffin colonies, and an active volcano that last erupted in 1973
  • At the waterfalls of Hraunfossar in Borgarfjordur, a river runs several miles underground that comes bursting out from the edge of a lava field!
  • The area around Skaftafell in Vatnajökull National Park. In the summer you have the purple of the lupin plant with a backdrop of glaciers.
  • I love a good winter storm, as long as everybody is safe. The nature and weather play a big part of life in Iceland.

It's great to hear that you managed to see the Northern Lights, even though after a long time waiting. Snæfellsnes peninsula in the West of Iceland is my personal favourite so I totally understand that you loved it. I really like your pictures too! Warm regards, Your local agent NikaSee more

    The Pros :
    Before the trip, working with Gunnar was so easy and wonderful. We loved our day 2 hike to the hot spring and our glacier days in Skaftafell especially. Our itinerary was lovely, exactly what we hoped for- it kept us busy, outside and active. No tourist traps. Everything on it was valuable!
    The Cons:
    Nothing was bad! Rain and wind were tough but expected.
