Snorkeling between continents - Silfra fissure

Snorkeling is probably not the first thing that pops into your mind when planning your trip to Iceland? Yet scuba diving and snorkeling in Iceland is becoming more and more popular among the world’s dive enthusiasts. The main reasons being unique sites and most often fantastic visibility. When travellers ask my, what I should do in Iceland I usually tell them this is a must-do thing!  Snorkeling in Silfra Out of all the great dive sites in Iceland, Silfra fissure is without a doubt the most popular. One of the main reason is that this freshwater fissure is actually a crack between the Nor

Skaftafell - A Hiker's Paradise

As often as I’ve visited Skaftafell, I still get goose bumps when I see the mountains in a distance as you approach the national park. Skaftafell national park has been my favourite spot in Iceland for many years. However because of its location it hasn't gained as much popularity as other places in Iceland. The national park is located at the South East Coast of Iceland at the roots of Vatnajökull, the biggest glacier in Europe. It's difficult to describe the beauty of the area in words, but the scenery in Skaftafell is like no other; here you'll find stunning glaciers, black beaches and some

Snorkeling in a geothermal lake in Iceland - Kleifarvatn

Probably not many of you think of diving when it comes to visiting Iceland, a sub arctic island with no tropical fish or coral reefs. However you’ll be surprised by what the country has to offer for divers and snorklers.

Silfra has become widely famed for its unrivalled clarity, offering one of the best fresh water dives in the world. As a result other natural diving pearls often go unnoticed. One of them is Kleifarvatn, a geothermal lake nes

Glacier hiking and Ice climbing in Iceland

When in Iceland one should not simply pass by the massive glaciers while driving the ring road, it’s a must to get up close and witness these magnificent ice giants at first hand. So escape the comfort zone and take a step on the ice…but be careful! Where to go? One of the most convenient and easiest glacial walks take you to Sólheimajökull, a beautiful outlet glacier from the Mýrdalsjökull ice cap. Under the cap lies the Katla caldeira, one of Iceland’s biggest volcano that eventually will erupt again one day. We recently got the chance to visit the glacier by going on a Glacier hiking

Winter activities in Iceland

Iceland is famous for its winters, probably because people who are visiting Iceland imagine snow covered mountains and icy glaciers. Visiting Iceland during winter is a totally different experience than during the summer, usually with lower prices and less crowds. Personally I'm a big fan of the winter and I wanted to share with you some activities I enjoy doing over the colder months.  Experience the northern lights The best thing about visiting Iceland during winter time is the chance of seeing the northern lights. To the locals, the northern lights are a part of their life, as they light
