Made with love by travelers – for travelers!
Get off the beaten path and away from the crowds (and prices) that swarm the southern region so you can meet locals, eat delicious food, sit in free hot springs ten times better than the Blue Lagoon, find secret waterfalls, and hike trails where you can be alone with the natural beauty of Iceland under the gaze of the Northern Lights.
I’ve visited every region of Iceland. It’s a magical land I’ve fallen deeply in love with. My Icelandic friends have taken me to places not found in other guidebooks or websites. I’ve put everything I know about the country into this book so you can see more, spend less, and get to really experience the magic that is Iceland.
