Our international airport – Keflavik is 50km from Reykjavik the drive is 45 minutes on a good day. So an airport transfer in a taxi that can cost you $200 that you could spend whale watching or gazing at the northern lights with us.
During Thorrablot we eat a lot of meat, preserved in traditional ways, and using all the parts of the animal, and we mean all of them. Sour ram’s testicles are definitely a thing here, you can buy them in the local supermarket even!
Sure, you love going to our geothermal spas and watching the Northern Lights shine above you, but you want to do something more adventurous during your Icelandic holiday. Look no further. Snorkelling between tectonic plates is what you need. It is the only place in the world you can do it, and some of the clearest water in the world too…because it’s water from a glacier. This means that whilst it is super clear it is also really cold…about 3°C or 37°F. It is definitely worth taking the plunge, but we want you to stay warm so here are our top tips.
Whilst a lot of pools are in the capital area, and we cannot recommend them enough, there are some hidden gems that are way out there, you may even be lucky enough to get them to yourself! We hope you get a chance to visit them during your time in Iceland.
