Glymur Waterfall
Exeter:Only a 45 drive from Reykjavik and a beautiful hike...you'll have to cross the river, so be prepared for sharp rocks on your bare feet.

Exeter:Only a 10 minute drive from the center and will give you beautiful views over Reykjavik.

The Reykjadalur Hot Spring Hike on Your Own
Exeter:This is my favorite hike! Make sure the trail is open. Bring your bathing suit and towel and be rewarded with a hot river at the top!

Þórsmörk Hike with a Local Guide
Exeter:I haven't done it, but it looks amazing and it's something I really want to do.

Hot Springs & Swimming Pools

Unwind and let the mineral rich waters work their magic. Below are a few tours where you can hike to natural hot springs, or if you want to combine your soak with visiting some of the highlights. I also included an article about the local pools...as it's a very "locals" thing to do.

Another World

Be utterly transported! These tours and articles will take you to places where you will question whether you are still on planet earth.

Icelandic Horses and wildlife 🐴

They aren't ponies...they are horses. They are resilient and hardy and have great big personalities. There will be lots of opportunities to find horses to take a picture with. I'm not really into whale watching so that's why I haven't put any on my list.

Northern Lights 💚

Seeing the Northern Lights in Iceland is a bucket list item, but it's by no means a sure thing. Weather, solar activity, temperature, light pollution...it will all have effect how you see the lights. That being said your best chance to see it is here in Iceland.

The Best Time to see the Northern Lights in Iceland
Exeter:A very helpful article


About 11% of the land area of Iceland is covered by glaciers. Below you can choose how you want to experience the glacier....snowmobile, hike, ice climb, super jeep or helicopter...pick your poison, but be sure to pick one!

Local Culture in Reykjavik

This small but mighty country has an incredibly rich cultural heartbeat. Street art decorates the city, the music scene is pulsing (Icelandic rap is amazing...no joke), plus there's the whole vikings thing. So switch up the nature with something from this list.

Car Rentals and Airport Shuttles 🚗

Did you know that Keflavik International Airport is a 45 minute drive from Reykjavik? Here's everything you need to make this easy and seamless!
