Although we wish all our guests wonderful weather and a worry free vacation in Iceland sometimes small accidents or sickness can occur. Therefore we prepared this small guideline for your trip in Iceland.
Welcome to Snaefellsnes peninsula, full of dramatic volcano peaks, lava fields, golden beaches and even more! This magical place is one of my favorites here in Iceland and it is only a couple of hours away from Reykjavik. Snaefellsnes peninsula is very dynamic and gives you totally different experiences depending on the time of the year.
The ice caves in Iceland are one of the most popular winter highlights. Unfortunately, most of the ice caves are not safe to visit during the summer. This is especially the case for the so-called crystal ice caves in Vatnajökull National Park. There, the caves get flooded plus there is a high risk of collapsing ice when being in a cave during summer.
With the isolation that comes with living on an island, the Icelandic sheep is one of the purest breeds of sheep in the world. It is not only the cutest little animal, but its wool keeps us warm and its meat keeps us strong. There are about 800.000 sheep in Iceland and only about 323.000 Icelanders. This means there are more than two sheep per human on our small island.
Sometimes I have the feeling people underestimate the size of Iceland and a common question I often hear is: "How long does it take to drive around Iceland?". Therefore I collected a few details about the so called „ring road“ that goes (almost) all around the country, its length and the time you need to drive around Iceland.
Close to Kirkjubaejarklaustur, you find an impressive canyon called Fjadrargljufur Canyon. It is not right next to the ring road so many tourists might just pass this spot. The Icelandic name of this canyon is Fjaðrárgljúfur – a perfect example to demonstrate the beauty of the Icelandic language.
A lot of our guests are interested to spot some puffins during their travel in Iceland. Therefore, we have decided to create a list of the best places to see puffins in Iceland, in order to ensure that you will encounter some during your trip.
Iceland is one of the best places in Europe for whale watching. Over the last couple of years, Iceland has become the whale watching the center of Europe, and whale watching tours are operated all around the island.

In this blog, I will point out and recommend the best whale watching spots in Iceland.

We know that a lot of our guests come to Iceland with an image of the milky blue waters of the Blue Lagoon in their minds. And there is a reason. The Blue Lagoon is an experience that will add some value to your stay in Iceland.
We know that a lot of our guests come to Iceland with an image of the milky blue waters of the Blue Lagoon in their minds. And there is a reason. The Blue Lagoon is an experience that will add some value to your stay in Iceland. But is it the only place that will offer you such an experience? Not at all! And this is what we want to discuss in this post. There are some Blue Lagoon alternatives in Iceland available, where you can enjoy bathing in naturally heated waters and relax while enjoying the wonderful scenery around. This time around, we would like to mention the Secret Lagoon (www.secretlagoon.is) and compare it to the infamous Blue Lagoon. In the pictures below, you see the Blue Lagoon on the right and the Secret Lagoon on the left.

Team Iceland Unlimited celebrated their 2nd annual „Ugly Christmas Sweater Party“ in early December. Christmas is a wonderful time of the year, but those first weeks of December can be quite stressful for many. During this time, we are working hard to finalize everything for our Christmas and New Year´s Eve tours. As we try our best to prepare everything in time, we also feel it is important to let loose every once in a while. Although Christmas is the time to care for each other, (in our case - our multicultural guests from all over the world) it is also the season to be merry! And that is exactly what our Christmas Ugly Sweater day is all about.

Many people who travel to Iceland would like to visit at least one hot spring. Often you might think: “What hot springs can I bathe in?” or “What hot springs should I visit?”. The hot springs in the Westfjords of Iceland are extremely cozy, relaxing and comfortable.

Island ist einer der besten Orte in Europa um Wale zu beobachten.

Seeing Iceland from above is indeed very special and unique: fly over glaciers and their crevasses, volcanos and their craters and lava fields, mountains and their birds and sheeps, make a stop or two and experience what remote really means and the peaceful silence that comes with it.
