    What to pack for Iceland in the summer

    Although Iceland is a destination that can be visited all year round, the majority of tourists visit Iceland in the summer. I have been to Iceland six times in the summer (and four times in the winter) and what I always remember is that it’s actually always relatively cold in Iceland. When I look back at the photos I took during those travels, I never really wear just a t-shirt, but always a warm jacket or sweather and long pants. Don’t be alarmed, but the average temperature in Iceland in summer (July and August) is between 10 and 13°c. This may require some creativity with packing for Iceland because it…

    Vestmannaeyjar – a day on the Westman Islands in Iceland

    One of the most memorable things I ever did in Iceland was to visit Vestmannaeyjar also known as the Westman Islands. This archipelago is located 11 kilometers off the Icelandic south coast and is well worth a visit. I was lucky that it was, by Icelandic standards, a beautiful day and so I last minute decided to go for it and make the ferry crossing from the campsite at the Seljalandsfoss to the Westman Islands by boat. I traveled up and down for one day and that’s enough to see the small island of Heimaey. This is also the only inhabited island of Vestmannaeyjar. In this article I will tell…

    Fjallsárlón or Jökulsárlón: which glacier lagoon should you visit?

    Fjallsárlón or Jökulsárlón: which glacier lagoon should you visit? Have I ever mentioned before that I’m a true glacier addict? And that I can just sit and stare at a glacier forever? In case I haven’t mentioned it before, the word is out now. I’m probably one of the world’s biggest glacier geeks and I love it! Over the past decades I’ve seen a large amount of glaciers all over the world and found that Iceland has some easy accessible glaciers. Having been to Iceland no less than 10 times, I figured I’d seen it all, but during my most recent trip I finally went to see Fjallsárlón glacier lagoon,…

    Lava Caves & Volcanoes Tour with Basecamp Iceland

    Review: The Lava Caves & Volcanoes tour with Basecamp Iceland The Reykjanes Peninsula: everyone has been there but nobody really knows it well. Keflavík International Airport is located here and everyone who arrives in Iceland by plane will be introduced to the Reykjanes Peninsula upon arrival. Yet most tourists jump on board a bus as fast as they can to go to Reykjavík or the Blue Lagoon. Some rent a car and leave from here for their adventure.     I also used to be such a person, who has now been on the Reykjanes Peninsula more than 20 times, without really paying attention to it. When I was invited…
