I’m so excited to share my first travel video with all of you – a recap of our trip to Iceland! This video was a true labor of love – dozens of hours spent compiling footage, editing, rearranging and editing again.
Planning a trip to Iceland? There’s so much you need to know! Read on for some helpful Iceland travel tips and advice before you go.
Iceland is incredible. There is so much to see, so much to absorb. The connection with nature is raw. It’s like no other place we’ve visited.
When we were planning our trip, it all felt a bit overwhelming. There is a lot of information on the internet, but it’s of variable quality and usefulness. Add to that all the unpronounceable names and…phew.
Now that we’ve come out the other side of this amazing adventure, here is some practical advice before you go.

Ever visited a secret hot springs at the base of a mountain? Read on for this and more hidden hot springs and geothermal pools all over Iceland
When we were planning our trip to Iceland, Pat had one request. Hot springs.
His perfect Iceland trip would involve visiting a hot springs every day of our trip. While we didn’t quite make all of his dreams come true, we did manage to visit a hot springs every other day – so not bad! In total, we visited four hot springs in Iceland over the course of eight days.
Looking back, I think these hot springs visits will be some of our best memories of Iceland. Each one was completely different and beautiful in its own way. One was at the base of a mountain, one was a tiny hot pot just big enough for two people, one was a misty green wonderland right out of a fairytale and of course there was Iceland’s most famous (and not secret) Blue Lagoon.

Everything you need to know before visiting Reykjavik, Iceland! A comprehensive restaurant guide, hotel recommendations and even day trips to do from the city!Reykjavik is such an interesting place. Despite being relatively isolated from the rest of the world, it has a surprisingly trendy vibe. Its residents haven’t let the extremes in daylight and darkness, or weather for that matter, cramp their enjoyment of life. There are great bars, amazing restaurants, cute boutiques and an overall feeling of nationalism.
Reykjavik is a bit of a mystery – unless you’ve visited for yourself, chances are you don’t know much about it. It isn’t a darling of the cinema like Paris or Rome. You really have to see it for yourself to get what it’s all about! It’s a sea town with a proud viking heritage.
Reykjavik also feels extremely safe. There are no guns and they have no military presence. Crime is almost nonexistent. It’s small and safe enough to feel very walkable and pretty enough that you’ll want to walk everywhere.

Everything you need to know before visiting the Blue Lagoon in Iceland. Read on for Hours, Best Times to Visit, Rates, Tickets, Reviews & More.
When you think of Iceland, an image of the Blue Lagoon may be one of the first things that comes to mind. The blue thermal waters with steam rising off are practically iconic. Even better, it’s not a Photoshop trick! The water really looks that milky blue in real life. The water isn’t actually blue though, it’s a milky white due to the silica and other minerals in the water. The sunlight reflecting off the silica-rich water is also why it appears to be blue.

Everything you need to know for a trip to the Golden Circle in Iceland. Of course you’ll visit Geysir and Gullfoss waterfall, but I’m also sharing a few lesser-known spots that you must check out!
Very few trips to Iceland are complete without a visit to the Golden Circle. It’s easily accessible from Iceland’s capital, Reykjavik, and the entire trip can be completed in a day. Unlike many things that are easy to get to and also very popular, the Golden Circle is absolutely worth the visit. No matter how crowd-phobic you are, you must see it, at least once. Geysir and Gullfoss Waterfall are true wonders of nature. Thankfully, there are also a couple of places that will make your belly happy too.
