Iceland Travel Guide

A Quick Intro to Iceland

Just a 3 hour flight from London and a 6 hour flight from New York, Iceland has become a popular stopover destination when crossing the Atlantic. Icelandair offers free stopovers, so it’s worth adding at least a few days in to see this incredible country.

Located in both the Arctic Ocean and the Northern Atlantic, Iceland is the most sparsely populated country in Europe and has a lot of incredible scenery to enjoy.

Prices in the country aren’t cheap by any means, but it’s well worth visiting if you can afford to.

The capital city of Reykjavik may be small but it has a lot of great attractions, including the Blue Lagoon, Hallgrimskirkja church and Harpa Concert Hall. There are also plenty of places to visit, including a penis museum (yes you read that right!) and a bar themed around the movie Big Lebowski.

Head out of the city and you’ll see what Iceland’s really all about. The Golden Circle is a must for any first-time visitor, as is the South Shore, which is home to some spectacular waterfalls. If you need some inspiration, I’ve put together a 3 day Iceland itinerary that covers all of the major things to do.

Of course, if you have more time you could rent a car to really get off the beaten track and explore some of Iceland’s most beautiful places.
