Vagnhöfði 6-20, Reykjavík, Iceland

Hvammsvegur, 845 Flúðir, Iceland
So the secret is out. And unless you love crowds, skip the Blue Lagoon and come visit the Secret Lagoon. You will probably share the facility w/ a handful of people at most. Pretty minimal facilities and changing room/reception don't detract from...

Nordurljosavegur 9, 240 Grindavík, Iceland
Three days in iceland. Doesn't sound like much time? I'm here to convince you otherwise. We experienced glacier hiking, ice climbing, waterfalls, volcanos, Icelandic horses, snow-capped mountains, lava fields, Vikings, Viking beer,...
Geirsgata 1, 101 Reykjavík, Iceland
I can't say I saw too many cows roaming around the Icelandic countryside but that doesn't stop them from making some mean burgers! Near central hub downtown you'll see tons of fun street art - and also a great burger at Hamborgarabullan. Try the...
