A city boy from the country side!

Being from the north part of Iceland, living in the city, I need to get out to the country side as often as possible. These are my top 3 places in Iceland.

Hofsós

One of those hidden gems around the country, with one of the most amazing pools and hot tub around the country. Also the home of the Icelandic Emigration Center where north-americans can trace their origin back to Iceland.

Check out our Hofsós page.

Skaftafell

Skaftafell is a preservation area in Öræfi, southeast Iceland. It used to be a manor farm and a national park, but has been a part of Vatnajökull National Park since its establishment in 2008. The scenery around Skaftafell is full of stark contrasts. The various glacial tongues are flanked by jagged mountains, with the glacier-topped peak of Hvannadalshnjúkur rising highest. Evidence abounds of the erosive forces exerted by glacial ice and rivers.

Reykjavík

The colourful capital city of Reykjavík that never sleeps (unless there’s Eurovision or our boys playing football at the World Cup).
