Seljalandsfoss – Iceland’s Most Beautiful and Captivating Waterfall

Iceland's most beautiful waterfall is Seljalandsfoss
I know we write a lot about waterfalls. From an outsider’s point of view, it may be hard to understand why. Once you set foot in Iceland, you’ll get it. Iceland’s nickname is the Land of Fire and Ice, but I would add water as well. You will find the most unbelievable waterfalls, watercourses, and streams running through the...

South Iceland Spotlight: Skógafoss Waterfall

Be sure to include Skógafoss waterfall on your South Iceland itinerary
When traveling along the South Coast on Iceland’s Ring Road, there’s quite a bit to see. The stretch of Road between Reykjavik and Vik is particularly interesting. Not only are you close to the sea, but several must-see detours are located here. Between Seljalandsfoss waterfall, Skógafoss waterfall, and the plane crash site at Solheimasandur black sand beach, you’ve got...

Whale Watching in Iceland – Gentle Beasts in Arctic Waters

Whale tail in Arctic waters in Iceland
The whale watching pursuit has begun. You're out on a boat in the middle of Húsavík’s Skjálfandi Bay and your eyes are peeled. When will the gentle beast poke its head out of the water? Is that a tail over there to your right? Whale watching in Iceland as one of the coolest, most fun activities you can do...

The Beast: Iceland’s Powerful Dettifoss Waterfall

Man dwarfed by the sheer size of Iceland's Dettifoss waterfall, also known as the Beast
One of the things that strike visitors most about Iceland is the wide variety of its landscapes and its stunning natural beauty. The destructive power of its ancient volcanoes reminds us of just how tiny and insignificant we truly are. Those looking for a transcendental experience frequently come here to be awed by all that Mother Nature has to...

Must See Attractions in Vatnajökull National Park – Part One

The glacier at Iceland's Vatnajökull National Park
I think its safe to assume that Iceland’s naturally occurring attractions are well known. Travelers don’t exactly come here for the weather. Curious adventurers put up with our infamously unstable weather for a chance to see the unbridled and stunning landscapes that we are famous for. One area of Iceland where you can see a great mix of different...

Iceland’s Premier Cultural Festival: Reykjavik Culture Night

Reykjavik Culture Night ends in fireworks

Iceland’s Coolest Activities: Glacier Walks and Ice Caves

Ice caves and glacier hikes are a popular outdoor activity in Iceland
The tail end of summer serves as the perfect time to start planning your Icelandic adventure for next winter! Our country comes alive in the colder months with plenty of exciting outdoor activities.

Explore Iceland’s Vatnajökull National Park’s Lesser-Known Gems

Vatnajökull National Park and Skaftafell glacier
It is ironic that one of Europe's smallest countries is home to its largest national parks. Vatnajökull park, for me, is an excellent representation of Iceland itself. It is diverse and full of beautiful and contrasting landscapes. Initially, the surrounding areas were two separate parks, (with the Vatnajökull glacier being its own entity), but in 2008, it brought the...

Iceland’s Blue Lagoon

Bathers in Iceland's spectacular Blue Lagoon
The Blue Lagoon is pretty simple to describe: one of the coolest and most surreal places you can visit in Iceland (and probably the world). With such a flattering description, it's not hard to understand why many people want to know all about this unique place. A visit to the Blue Lagoon is a must do when visiting Iceland....
