Iceland Stopover Overview
I want to introduce a better way to explore Iceland when using the stopover program. I get a lot of emails from people who want to visit Iceland and often they only have a few days to spend in Iceland, so the big question is what to see & do! I teamed up with Icelandair, Sixt car rental, Hotel Edda, Icelandair Hotel and Fontana Spa to enjoy 5 days roaming around West Iceland. Joining me for the trip was the travel blogger Lola, who runs the blog Where in the world is Lola. Traveling from the US to Europe or vice versa you can stop in Iceland for up to 7 days when flying with Icelandair without any extra flight cost.
US Navy Plane Wreck in Iceland
Useful guide finding Iceland’s Plane Wreck, Sólheimasandur, South Iceland. By Stu, who publishes Wheres My Passport, with his wife Nat.
When we first went to Iceland in 2012, I really wanted to visit the Iceland plane wreck (US Navy Dakota DC-3, it could actually be a C-47 Skytrain) that crashed on the black beach at Solheimasandur, a vast area of sand and gravel in South Iceland close to the town of Vik. It looked like a truly interesting place to visit and one that offered some great photography potential.
Learn Icelandic Vol. 3
Hello, again language lovers!
It is definitely time for an update. I spent two months in Iceland and it is time to share a little more of what I learned. My skill level is still pretty low, picked up a few words and usually guessed the topic of the conversation from the from the context.

Double destinations with Icelandair’s STOPOVER program!
When I discovered that one of my best friends flew from France to Canada recently without stopping by to visit me in Iceland, I was (like his other friends here in Reykjavik), well and truly miffed! Turns out though, despite the fact that he’d lived here previously, he didn’t know about Icelandair’s rather nifty STOPOVER program, which allows people travelling on flights between Europe and the USA and vise-versa, to stopover in Iceland without the expense of additional airfares.
Lebowski Bar - The Reykjavik venue that rocks!
The 1998 film The Big Lebowski by the Coen brothers is not only a film, it has now become a lifestyle. With the emergence of the Lebowski Bar in Reykjavik, everyone can now be a part of The Dude‘s peculiar world.
Lebowski Bar goes all in, in every way, having divided the interior into four separate themes—bowling alley, a southern-style porch, a ‘50s diner, and a kind of ‘60s playboy lounge bar on the upper floor.
