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.

    Best parts:
    Our company trip to Iceland was a massive success thanks to our wonderful travel agent Patrizia. She was so knowledgable about the country and had great suggestions for us, and was able to make alternate arrangements for us when we had requests for changes. She was always very quick to respond to my many messages and questions. From the moment we arrived in Iceland, everything was flawless - our accommodations were perfect, our activities were mind blowing and our wonderful driver/guide (Thruster! The man, the legend) made our trip so special. It was so nice to arrive to Iceland and have absolutely everything arranged for us - everything was on time and truly world-class.
    Worst parts:
    NOTHING! It was the greatest trip of our lives :)
    Summary:
    Snowmobiling on the volcanic glacier and exploring the ice caves were our favourite activities, but we enjoyed them all!

    Everything...Blue Lagoon was a great way to start my trip. Then I attempted to see Northern Lights. Touring an ice cave and snorkeling in Silfra were fantastic due to their natural beauty, and the tour guides were outstanding. The Reykjavik Food Walk was a great afternoon as well.
    Worst parts:
    We had 2 solid days of rain, but that's out of everyone's control.
    Summary:
    I loved every moment of my trip: Blue Lagoon, Northern Lights, food walk, seeing waterfalls/Golden Circle, the ice caves, snorkeling, the food, and the people of Iceland.
