One of my all time favourite places to visit.
I’m lucky enough to have been able to visit twice, I absolutely adore Iceland. Yes, I’m a fan of the cold weather (my social media moniker reflects that), but I also love how it’s a tiny little world and you can’t help but get caught up in the charm of the place.
I wasn’t adventurous enough to eat Fermented Shark or Puffin, but the best Fish and Chips AND the greatest hamburger I’ve had outside of the continental US is all here.
Food aside, it’s a stunning part of the world, that is only a 2 hour flight (with no time difference change from the UK), so you ‘d be daft to miss it!
I’ve now had Iceland two ways (NOT A EUPHEMISM). I’ve booked flights, hotel and excursions separately (I did this when money was a little tight, and bought one thing at a time as the months went by!), that time was a girly holiday with my sister, and it was lovely.
The second time, I booked the Northern Lights package (more to come of those in another post), with Iceland Air, the hotel was a little nicer, we got to fly without paying for our extra luggage, and it was an altogether slightly more pleasant experience!
