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
Hraunfossar in Iceland
Skaftafell in Iceland
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.

  • KWT 's Fabulous trip to Iceland
    KWT 's Fabulous trip to Iceland
    April 29, 2019
    The Pros :
    • Glymur hike was voted the best by the 3 of us. Sorry we learned about the geo thermal spring nearby after we had left the area. • History and geology of the Tectonic plate region. • Falls that you can walk behind. • Secret Lagoon • L***** hotel was voted best hotel with a very pleasant manager and great breakfast. • Lava museum- good on rainy day • Folk museum- good when tired from hiking • Settlement Museum in Reykjavik • The overall beauty of ever changing lava rocks- from moss covered fields to black lava rock sculptures - to the coastal lava rock
    The Cons:
    •Weather- rain almost every day •Some hotels that were noisy- b&b near airport was particularly loud- although beds were comfy we couldn't sleep because of noise. We were sorry you had not booked us back in the L*** for our last night as there was really no reason for us to be near the airport as we were not scheduled to leave until 4:45 and spent the day in Reykjavik •Expense of food • day #7 - kind of boring- lots of driving - not very interesting sights noted to stop at -

Thank you very much for your positive feedback, and I´m very happy to read that you enjoyed the country and landscapes so much, despite the rain :) The hike to Glymur is something special, so I´m very pleased to hear that you enjoyed that so much. L*** is also a favourite of mine, and the owner is absolutely lovely. I´m sorry to read that you felt that the drive on Reykjanes peninsula was not worthwhile, and that you didn´t enjoy the BnB in Keflavik. I have not had this issue or comment on the BnB before, but its something that I will take into consideration next time :) All the best, GunnarSee more

    The Cons:
    Nothing I did not like. Everything was great.

All of them were amazing. After our first night in Reykjavik we went to the Golden Circle and stayed in Fludir. Our excursions included a snorkel trip between the tectonic plates and a visit to the secret lagoon. The day after we explored different waterfalls, stopped at the Black Beach and stayed in a hotel close to Vik. From there we went to an ice cave, to the Diamond Beach and Glacier Lagoon. All these sights were amazingly beautiful. Another exciting excursion was our snowmobile trip on a Glacier above the volcano Katla. On the day of our departure we stopped at the Blue Lagoon for a little swim. The coordination and timing of the entire trip was well done and we could have not enjoyed it as much without Nika's help. Thank you!!See more
