Iceland: Music Festival Under The Midnight Sun
I’m super excited to tell you guys about the Secret Solstice festival held in Reykjavik, Iceland from June 15-18th. It’s a unique festival due to it's timing, the summer solstice weekend and this is the fourth time it's being held.
Iceland is known for being a land full of inspiring musicians and artists so bringing them together plus other international major bands and DJ’s will be one epic weekend. Are you joining ME? :)
Road trip around Snæfellsnes Peninsula, West Iceland
[Guest Blog] What I’m about to describe should not be attempted ever again: The Snæfellsnes Peninsula in a day. It deserves a week at least, perhaps a year, probably a lifetime. To do it in a day is ridiculous but that’s all we allowed ourselves in our dash around Iceland. Karina and I woke in total darkness at 8am, carb-loaded at the breakfast buffet, and then put on our essential Icelandic winter-gear – our swimsuits – under multiple warmer layers. We imagined ourselves stopping at hot springs around the way but when we cross referenced our research with the local knowledge of our host, it seemed we were out of luck.

South Iceland - What to See & Do - Part 3/3
I often get emails from people asking for informative tips on what to see & do while road tripping around South Iceland. The South coast is a popular route to drive throughout the year and I always recommend this area for travelers who only have a few days in Iceland.
So I decided to make a three part post about South Iceland, from Reykjavik to Jökulsárlón. This is part 3 where I share my knowledge about e.g. VÍK, Kirkjubæjarklaustur, Hjörleifshöfði, Fjaðrárgljúfur, Fjallsárlón, Jökulsárlón, Þakgil and more.
