We can’t only have fun. We need practical info too. How can you walk on ice without looking stupid? What should you pack for a holiday in Iceland? Is the country expensive and where are the puffins? Iceland isn’t really like other countries in some ways. So, it’s great to know some practical information before you arrive. Here, we post what we feel are necessary travel information. But in between, we´ll try to make you laugh.
You’ve probably already heard that Iceland’s expensive. While we mostly agree, we also know that you can get by on a relatively low budget if you’re frugal and don’t mind skipping fancy restaurants and private tours.
Puffins are so cute, just look at their funny little faces! Luckily for us Icelanders, we have millions of them. Our theory is that once, a penguin and a parrot got intimate, and much to their surprise, their offspring was a puffin.
We no speak English mjög good my friend. Just kidding! Most of us speak it just fine. It may not be perfect and sometimes it’s spoken with a thick Nordic accent. But most Icelanders speak fluent English.
In Iceland, there are endless possibilities for things to do. But unless you have all the time (and money) in the world you want to choose wisely. Icelanders are always coming up with new and innovative stuff. The travel industry is no exception! So, since you’ve probably heard about all the regular...
Most pictures of Iceland show barren landscape, ice and mountains. But we have several types of trees growing here, even a few forests. It’s a common misconception that Iceland doesn’t have trees because it’s too cold. It’s not. We rather like to blame the sheep.
If you're wondering what to pack for Iceland in the summer time, look no further. We've put together a list of the most important things.
