Winter is travel planning time! Well in Iceland it’s also time to see gorgeous snowy landscapes but I can’t wait to explore these new places too! Here’s my top 5 Things to do and Places to visit in Iceland travel goal list! 1. The Highlands of Iceland So now it’s winter and the roads up in the Highlands are closed but as soon as they open I will be getting my ass up there to see gorgeous places like this. […]
I will freely admit that I don’t do well in the winter, even in Ireland. I get lethargic, it’s difficult to motivate myself and unless I have to get out of bed it’s downright impossible some days. So why the hell did I move to a country where on the shortest day of the year the sun will rise at 11.30am and set at 3:30pm for a whopping four hours of daylight. And this year there’s very little snow and a […]
I’m currently living in the middle of the Golden Circle, the most visited place in Iceland outside Reykjavik. That’s not to say that these places aren’t lovely. They are beautiful but sometimes it’s nice to escape the crowds and have the place to yourself. With that in mind here are some ideas of alternatives to tourist traps/the most visited spots in Iceland. These are just some hidden gems in Iceland that I’m particularly fond of and I hope to add to these so […]
I’ve been a busy busy bee preparing some new travel photography books for you which are now available to buy through my online print store. As well as the Ísland (Iceland) and Føroyar (Faroe Islands) I’ve added the Northwest Passage, a record of Young Larry’s transit of the Arctic and the first by Irish women and Kalaallit Nunaat (Greenland) focusing just on the world’s largest island, its people, landscapes and culture. Take a look here, and as usual I’d love your feedback!
As I had two whole free days together this week and the weather was going to be good for at least one of them I decided to head off on a road trip to Jökulsárlón Lagoon in the south-east of Iceland. I had been very briefly months ago but I wanted to spend some time exploring the area properly and with the added bonus of snow to make everything extra pretty. Driving in Iceland When I saw the weather was going […]

Winter is here in Iceland and it seems every week there is another storm or at least where I am it’s perpetually raining. My knitting is going well but is more an evening thing – so what are the things to do in Iceland when the weather is bad, where there are no northern lights, you need a break from cafes and you’ve already been to all the museums? Iceland’s Swimming Pools Just about every town in Iceland has a swimming pool and […]
Right now I’m based north of Selfoss and find myself (for the first time since I was old enough to drive) car-less while living in the countryside. At this point I’m getting cabin fever and on my Sunday off a couple of weeks ago, I really wanted to go to Gullfoss, only about an hour north and so I packed my bag with my camera gear, positioned myself on a bit of road where it would be easy for cars to […]
I meet a lot of tourists now who are travelling in Iceland and have a lot of common questions like “Will the northern lights be visible tonight?” or “We want to go to Landmannalaugar tomorrow” – right after a lot of flooding! So what are the best apps for Iceland to help you get the most out of your trip – and safely? Veður I used this everyday. Several times a day. It’s probably the most accurate weather forecast for Iceland […]
