New Year’s Eve in Iceland

New Year’s Eve need not be over rated, anti-climatic and overpriced. Having spent the last six years in different cities, from London, to Orlando, Las Vegas, New York and Abu Dhabi, we love finding a new destination to enjoy the celebrations of New Years Eve. To ring in 2016 we picked Iceland. Iceland has to be one of […]

Icelandair Hotel Reykjavik Marina

Icelandair Hotel Reykjavik Marina is quirky and conveniently located in the heart of Reyjkavik. The views from the room over the marina were breath taking. The hotel has a rather interesting lobby with lots of little characters around the place. With a man sitting by the fire place and another by a urinal, and lost dog roaming. […]

Fire & Ice -The Best of Iceland

A trip to Iceland was booked slightly naively, solely to hunt for the Northern Lights. Then realisation dawned that if we didn’t see them it would be a pretty disastrous trip. Fortunately Iceland has so much more to offer, than just the Northern Lights, so much so, we almost forgot they were the sole purpose […]

The Blue Lagoon, Iceland

The Blue Lagoon in Iceland was a surreal experience. In -2 degrees Celsius the thought of braving the elements in swimwear was slightly daunting. The changing rooms are well equipped with heated floors and sophisticated locker systems. We were impressed with the well maintained, pristine, luxury facilities, given this is a tourist hotspot. You can […]

Kol, Reykjavík

Kol has a lovely, modern Icelandic feel and serves some of the best cocktails and food in Iceland. With experienced head chef, Einar Hjaltason and Karl Porsteinsson having worked at  London’s Le Manoir Aux Quat Saisons,  Dabbous, and Noma in Copenhagen we had high expectations. The menu is varied and service friendly and attentive. The homemade lemonade […]

Fish Restaurant, Reyjkavik

Iceland is renowned for fishing so it is a must to savour some of the fresh fish by the old harbour. The Reyjkavik Fish Restaurant is in the Old Harbour area. It’s a nautically themed and the breaded cod and chips are the gem on the menu. The batter was light and crispy and the meal itself […]

Northern Lights, Iceland

To catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights we booked a trip to Reyjkavik. We had our fingers and toes crossed to see the Northern Lights. The phenomena arises from charged particles from the sun reacting with the earth’s atoms causing electrons to move to a higher energy state. The drop of electrons energy state […]
