Iceland

For a small country, it certainly packs a punch.

A hub of volcanic activity and home to Europe’s most powerful waterfall, Iceland is celebrated not only for its beauty, but diversity.

I’ve been to Iceland many times and the more I go, the deeper I fall in love with this place. Inspired by my travels to this northerly island, I showcase popular and lesser known attractions for you to explore in hope that you will love Iceland as much as I do.

Whether you’ve just got a layover in Reykjavik and want to see as much as you can in 48 hours, or you’re driving along the entire ring road on a two week holiday, you’ll never be short on things to do and see.

In these articles you will find travel stories as well as practical information about what to wear and even what happens if your car hire gets stuck in mud!
