A genuine Icelandic Farm experience

In Skagafjörður (North West Iceland), three farmers recently created a program called The Icelandic Farm Animals, which invites visitors to immerse themselves in daily life on a farm. Evelyn Ýr, Eydís and Sigrún are living next to each other and all working with different animals (horse, sheep, goat), therefore they decided to take advantage of their complementarity. “It has been great working together, we share knowledge, thoughts, compare our visions of things, and at the end great ideas emerge out.” explains Sigrún.

A ten day tour of Iceland

A ten day tour of Iceland

The lovely couple behind Pure Adirondacks, Evan & Hilary Williams contacted me to help them plan an 10-day road trip around Iceland. They drove around the island, hiked mountains, explored, and took some amazing footage. Here is their official blog post filled with ideas what to see & do while road tripping around Iceland. "In early June 2013, after months of excitedly researching and planning our trip, Evan and I finally landed in Iceland.  Our friend Morgan had flown in earlier in the day, picked up our trusty rental car and camping gear, and made his way back to the airport to rendezvous with us."

Heading South to Reykjavík ~ #IcelandChallenge Day 7

On our last day, we traveled from Akureyri to Reykjavik which takes about 5 hours.

We spent the time exchanging good music, enjoying the scenery and discussing our favorite parts of the trip. I don’t recommend making this trip in such a short time, but we were excited to get to Reykjavik to enjoy a night on the town!

We were thrown together by chance on a #IcelandChallenge trip of a lifetime. Things were bound to go astray, right?

An Alternative Way to See Iceland

An Alternative Way to See Iceland

I first became fascinated by this country when a friend introduced me to Sigur Rós in 2008. There was something special about the band. Granted, I heard them after the release of their most upbeat album, Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust (2008), but the music touched me all the same. The falsetto of lead singer Jónsi Birgisson and incredible combination of instruments pulled me in. By Laura Hundersmarck
