Our stay at Hetta Huskies was one of the most memorable experiences of our Lapland trip. Dog sledding was always on our wish list and Hetta Huskies presented with a perfect opportunity for not just dog sledding but also an insight into the life in a husky farm. [Read more…]
The flight from Reykjavik to Kulusuk is known to be one of the most picturesque flights in the world. And you do not want to miss this because of a wrong seat selection. So how do we select the perfect seat? Let’s plan step by step to select the best seats on Air Iceland for Reykjavik to Kulusuk.
Landmannalaugar is one of the unique destinations of Iceland. Situated near the volcanic Hekla mountain, the different colors of rhyolite hills in Landmannalaugar are truly a spectacular sight.
The Vestdalur hike in Seydisfjordur is the one of the best and the popular ones. It is a 22 km trek, which takes around 5.5 hrs. It ends at Vestdalsvatn lake at the top, which is frozen even during the summers. From this point, you have to return the same way.
The M/S Norrona is an another way to reach Iceland apart from the flights. If scenery is your main interest, except for a few views of mountains near Faroe Islands and Seydisfjordur, the Smyril Line journey from Denmark to East Iceland is not that interesting. After a while, I got a little bored of the ocean. It is a good option if you want to take your motorcycles or cars from Denmark for self-drive tour in Iceland.
The three words in the definition of adventure – ‘unusual’, ‘exciting’ or ‘daring’ –never existed in my life. I was desperate to experience each one of these words but never had the courage. And during one of those desperate phases, I made a decision – a decision that changed my life forever. I took a solo trip to Iceland in May 2013 – an experience that will always be etched in my memories.
Iceland Visa – The last bridge
Now, since this was my first ever experience in applying for a visa, I wasn’t aware of the common tricks like a fully refundable hotel booking. And as my accommodation plans in Iceland were camping, I had no clue how to sort out this clause. I carried the passport and ticket copies of my fellow travellers from Poland as supporting documents for my camping status.
As I was standing near the exit of Keflavik airport, it looked sunny outside those sliding glass doors. Just 10 feet away from my dream destination, I still couldn’t believe I made it till here. That feeling of finally reaching the destination will always be special for me. And it felt so special because of all those challenges and difficulties I had to face while planning this trip.
Iceland itinerary was a tough thing to plan as this was my first ever trip. This was the plan we finally executed.
