Loungin around in swimming pools and hotsprings is a national pastime in Iceland. This photo is taken at the local swimming pool in the small town Hofsós. Often named as the most beautiful swimming pool in Iceland, the Hofsós swimming pool is built into the hillside with a view out to sea and over Drangey that is breathtaking! If you are travelling on the road in North Iceland we recommend that you check it out!

This photo is taken while flying over one of the most impressive waterfalls in Iceland, Goðafoss or ‘Waterfall of the Gods’! Located in North Iceland between Akureyri and Lake Myvatn the icy blue glacial water flows over an elegant semi circular arc and creates blue-green swirling patterns in the water below among the surrounding lava. North Iceland is home to some of the most stunning landscape and natural sites Iceland has to offer. There’s a reason why The Game of Thrones crew keeps returning year after year with Goðafoss being one of their favourite sites as it has been featured in the the popular series.

On a coastal fjord less than 40 kilometers (25 mi) from the Arctic Circle, the humble town of Siglufjörður was from 1905-1965 the booming fishing capital of Iceland and for a time, the herring capital of the world. Over the years, marine resources dwindled and the once thriving ‘Sigló’ declined in quiet isolation. Today, this historic village with a cheerful array of candy-colored houses, windswept wildflowers, and lively harbor is developing into Iceland’s next great undiscovered getaway. You’ll be charmed by the atmospheric fishing village full of welcoming Icelanders and colorful folk museums providing rare insight into life on the edge of the Arctic.

The Icelandic horse is a large part of Icelandic culture. The small, hardy horse (don‘t call them ponies) has been a part of Icelandic culture since the settlement. The Norse settlers brought over their best horses from various origins that have through the ages developed into the only breed of horse in Iceland, the Icelandic horse. It is the most colourful breed in the world, with over 40 different colours and 100 variations found in the breed. The Icelandic horse also has a unique fifth gate, tölt, that isn‘t found anywhere else.
Exploring Iceland's majestic landscapes with this amazing creature is something else. You have to try it!

Who is ready for summer? We are! and we can’t wait for warm weather, 24 hours of daylight and lots of travel! The south coast of Iceland holds some of the most beautiful natural attractions in Iceland. The area boasts a unique mix of volcanoes and glaciers, geysers, hot springs and waterfalls, along with multiple historic sites that will leave you breathless on your way. This mobile phone photo of Seljalandsfoss waterfall is taken last summer on a perfect Icelandic summer day. Seljalandsfoss is fed by melting water from the famed glacier Eyjafjallajökull and is best known for the walking path that runs behind the curtain of water where visitors can enjoy a truly unique viewpoint from this angle. It’s the only known waterfall in the world that it is possible to walk behind.

Did you know you can go on a day tour from Reykjavík and explore the south shore? Link in bio!

Did you know that the moss in Iceland is protected? Make sure you don’t step on it because you might end up with an Icelandic moss lawyer on your hands! Alright, maybe you won’t be sued (since there are no moss lawyers) but for Icelanders, our moss and its protection is important, for it takes decades to heal! The photo of this woolly fringe moss covered lava field is taken in Reykjanes peninsula and surrounds the famous Blue Lagoon. Looks a bit alien and unearthly, right?

This photo is taken in Reykjavík today by a team member enjoying the city view while eating a bun or bolla like we say in Icelandic. On Bun day or Bolludagur Icelanders eat buns all day and children make traditional Bun day wands which they use to spank their parents into giving them these creamy, chocolate buns! One bun for each spank makes for a lot of sore adult behinds. If you are travelling in Iceland today make sure you try one, you won‘t be disappointed.

This is Háifoss waterfall in what is clearly winter. A hike from the historical Stöng farm in Þjórsárdalur along the Fossá river will take you to the mighty waterfall. The hike is around 5-6 hours in total so be sure to wear the right gear and have snacks and a refillable water bottle on hand (we also recommend waiting for fair weather and the snow to melt!). Pro tip: above the waterfall, there is also a parking lot, so there is the possibility to cut the hike down to 800 meters from the other direction. 😉

With all the snow we've had in the past 24 hours, it's hard to believe that weather like this is just around the corner! In case you are wondering, this fabulous cell phone photo was taken just off of Route 1 - otherwise known as the Ring Road - just south of the town of Borgarnes.

This is the dramatic Valahnúkur black sand beach on Iceland's Reykjanes Peninsula. Reykjanes is often an overlooked region in Iceland despite its beauty, geological wonders, and close proximity to Reykjavík. Reykjanes is marked by its large lava fields, active volcanism, numerous hot springs, geothermal energy, rugged landscape, and sparse vegetation. The gray-green moss on the strange, otherworldly lava is usually the first glimpse visitors to Iceland get of the land of ice and fire as they arrive into Keflavík.

Dynjandi waterfall is the largest waterfall in the Westfjords and many locals say that it is the most majestic and most beautiful waterfall in Iceland. Though not all agree on that point, it's fair to say that the waterfall is a sight and is preserved as a natural monument since 1981, so please stay on the paths.
Tip: not far from the parking lot you can find an old homestead with ruins of an old turf house, which was inhabited until 1951. As the story goes, the wife of the farmer who used to live there couldn't stand listen to the constant roar of the thunderous waterfall. 😀
