Celebrate Iceland’s amazing horses!

Family holidays on a farm, or time spent as a spectator or participant in the company of Icelandic horses is always a treat.  Hardy and incredibly hairy in the winter, sleek and shiny in the summer, when the herd is made even more stunning by the addition of beautiful multi-coloured foals. The Icelandic horse should be a feature of every […]

Don’t miss the Aurora this winter!

Iceland is an excellent place from which to view the Northern Lights.   Named after Aurora, the Roman goddess of the dawn, and Boreas, the ancient Greek personification of the North Wind, they are at their most intense in a circle around the North Pole and are best viewed on the long dark nights between September and April. So what causes […]

Gannets galore on the Langanes Peninsula

This remote natural paradise is home to one of Iceland’s largest gannet colonies and definitely a place to feel that you’ve really got away from it all. Nearby, there are the remnants of ancient farms that were abandoned when making a living this far away from larger settlements became impossible. This uninhabited landscape is beautiful to explore and experience and […]

Go Geothermal

It’s not until you experience it for yourself, that the raw power of the geothermal heat that lies beneath Iceland’s varied landscape really makes an impression.  The concept of swimming in a pool filled with geothermally heated water is easy to grasp, seeing the zig zag pipes making their way towards Reykjavik to deliver hot water to the city is […]

Hubble Bubble Bárðarbunga!

Iceland’s eruption in 2014 wasn’t all that easy to get to and true to from. I flew back from Akureyri only a matter of days before it began so wasn’t able to see it for myself. However, when we received an enquiry later in the year about a trip to see caves and volcanoes we were delighted to be able […]

Iceland’s natural warmth

Harnessing the natural power of heat from the earth has provided Iceland with luxurious spas, space heating, greenhouse cultivation, fantastic swimming and showering facilities and in some places ice-free pavements. Isolated farms use their own bore holes and some of the best salt ever is produced from the sea using geothermal processes. It’s a technology that’s interesting to understand and […]

Jamie’s Aurora Borealis poem with video

This poem below was written by Jamie aged 10, who is very keen to see the Aurora and has been studying frozen landscapes at school. He loves the time lapsed video below which inspired him. The northern lights The frozen snow, Weakens my toe like ice. I then look up, To see if they have come, and then See a […]

Stunning Video of Iceland under Full Moon

One such perspective (no pun intended) is from an Icelandic photographic team called OZZO Photography who provide professional aerial services including drone based videos of hard to reach locations and scenes from Iceland. Their latest one […]

The mysteries of Ásbyrgi

This fantastic and enormous horseshoe-shaped gorge lies to the north of Husavik. Surprisingly, there isn’t a river there, although the geological explanation is that volcanic activity under the Vatnajökull glacier once produced a cataclysmic flood and a river that formed the gorge. But this is Iceland! The much more exciting explanation is that Sleipnir, Odin’s eight-legged horse was responsible. This […]
