Northern Lights over Gullfoss, Iceland

Seeing the Northern Lights is pure pot luck. You’re either lucky or you aren’t. One things for sure though, you need to be patient. That’s something that I’m not. Our first night in Iceland was spent in the amazing Volcano Hotel just outside of Vik. After an early morning flight and a long day, I went to bed. Stu...

Iceland

This was the last day of our Icelandic adventure and we started the morning snorkelling between the techtonic plates of Europe and America. We probably wouldn’t have done this if it hadn’t have been for someone recommending it to us and telling us it was a must. By the time we’d finished I wish we’d done the dive instead....

Iceland

We arrived at Gullfoss (Iceland’s most famous waterfall) for 9am and we were literally the only people there. The sun hadn’t risen over the dramatic waterfall yet so the paths were slippery and the rocks were icy. We took the steps down and carefully walked along the path to get the full view of the two waterfalls. The spray...

We had no activities planned for our third day and we were grateful because the weather  was awful. The wind was so strong I was sure the car doors were going to blow off and the rain looked like there was no sign of it stopping. I feel of all the days this is the one we wasted a...

After picking up our hire car, we took the twenty minute journey to the Blue Lagoon where we spent around an hour relaxing and recouping from our early morning flight. By lunchtime we were back on the road heading south on route one towards Vik. We were instantly struck by the changing landscape. One side of the road would...

Iceland’s Golden Circle Tour is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the country. The 300 kilometre loop visits the most popular landmarks of Iceland.  As we’d hired our own car we did the tour ourselves. We started the tour at Geysir.
