Our trip to Iceland took us through Boston. I couldn’t resist adding on a few days to really explore. Our first stop in Boston was to the Boston Tea Party Museum (with a quick stop in Boston favorite, Dunkin Donuts). We were immediately given new identities & let through an interactive tour, complete with period actors […]

After our Reykjavik tour, we quickly hopped onto our next excursion…dog sledding! This easily tops my list of favorite life experiences. The van that picked us up was warm & I hadn’t slept in a few days so I dozed off in the car. I was quite disoriented when I woke up and instead of […]

We booked our trip to Iceland for January, the darkest, coldest time of year so that we would have the best shot at catching the Northern Lights. With all of that cold though, I was really looking forward to visiting the famous Blue Lagoon for some warmth & relaxation. After we bought the tickets to […]

Our final stop on our Golden Circle Tour was Thingvellir, a national park that sits along the continental divide of the North American and Eurasian plates. Its unique rock formations made it perfect for orators. Before the days of amphitheaters with big sound systems, the Icelandic government held court & council right here. There Senate […]

The Golden Circle Tour continued on from the Thermal Power Plant to the Gulfloss Waterfall. This popular waterfall is more powerful than Niagra […]

One of the “must see” things to do is take a tour of the Golden Circle. It’s the road leading out from Reykjavik that incorporates the national parks & waterfalls. We opted for a big bus tour that left far too early in the morning for our sleep deprived eyes, after hunting the Northern Lights […]

The largest city in Iceland is Reykjavik. Our tour guide informed us that 2/3 of the entire population lives there. We opted to base ourselves out of Reykjavik & take trips from there. We loved staying in town and getting to come back at the end of each day. We stayed at the gorgeous Fosshotel. […]
