Driving Iceland’s Ring Road
After traveling Iceland extensively I can with out a doubt tell you the best way to experience this stunning nation is to drive what is referred to as the “Loop”. Iceland’s #1 highway slowly takes you through desolate lave fields, across epic fjords, past timeless landscapes, quaint villages and lets you experience Iceland at its own pace. Driving Iceland’s Ring Road also provides ample opportunities to make detours into the dramatic Westfjords, wild Snæfellsnes Peninsula and plenty more. Follow this guide to get the best out of Iceland’s Loop!
In a martian-like landscape where the weather
changes instantaneously and the pure vastness of the place makes it seem as if
you will never see enough, you may be thinking “Where do I start?”. Well lucky
for you we have created a list of activities and the companies we used so that
you can see as much of this magical place in the most fun and adventurous ways
Romantic Iceland Travel
When I think of Iceland I think of Vikings, big burly bad asses roaming the land with swords, ready to ward off anyone who wishes to stand in their way. When we got there we quickly realised how sweet and romantic it really is. The chilly weather sets the tone for cuddling up at night under the northern lights, the luxurious lagoons throughout the country make everyday a spa day, and the pristine nature means you are always surrounded by beauty. If you’re looking for a romantic destination that’s different from the typical “tropical hideaway” then we highly encourage you to come to Iceland and experience this winter wonderland for yourselves. You won’t be disappointed. Read More
Iceland, West Fjords
How I have longed for a place like this. The mountains here tell stories long forgotten. Such beauty masked and hidden deep in Fjords only reachable until recently. Villages caught in a time vault and a rugged wilderness of which much has never been explored. This is the Iceland we all look for but never find. The few that manage to make it here will tell you, this is their favourite part of the land of Fire and Ice. Being the oldest region in Iceland, and the West Fjords are clouded in a shroud of mystery and adventure. Whether it’s the awe-inspiring landscapes, Fjords filled with sea monster folk legends, or the people who have kept their Icelandic culture more so than anywhere on the island, the West Fjords are a traveller’s paradise. Welcome to the West Fjords of Iceland, off the beaten track!
