ICE ICE BABY Kids are staying home and mom and dad are heading to ICELAND in two weeks for an adventure of a lifetime! After dropping their bags and a bit of breakfast at the famed five star RETREAT AT THE BLUE LAGOON where they will later indulge in treatments and massages, lava facial maybe? - they will head out with their private guide for their private experience at the Silfra fissure where they will snorkel directly in a crevice between two continental plates. Amazing! Next thrilling adventure will be snowmobiling on Eyjafjallajokull Glacier. Another day will have the pair exploring the ice caves and tunnels on the biggest glacier in Europe, Vatnajokull, only accessible in winter. And if that is not enough adrenaline, landscape and adventure they will view cascading waterfalls and the black sand beach formed by the volcano Kafla by ATV. Last days will be spent more leisurely back in Reykjavik taking in a guided shopping tour of local craftsmen and an evening of gourmet chefs tastings and wine pairings visiting a few of the best restaurants and meeting with their chefs. Final night has the couple taking a Northern Lights cruise from the old harbor where they will hopefully see the skies perform. @icelandencounter#exceptionalexperiences#iceland

Ice cave exploration, snowshoeing, the blue lagoon, star gazing, super Jeep excursion, waterfall walk, ice climbing and more! Incredible family time. Not to mention pre stay visit planned with snowmobiling, Icelandic horseback riding and a day in Reykjavik. Bucket list! @backroadstravel@icelandencounter#iceland#exceptionalexperiences
When neon meets midnight sun.
A Reykjavík gas station, snapped at 10.51pm, which felt like something straight out of an Edward Hopper painting.
The natural light mimicking the neon - or was it the other way around?
The second photo is from the @kexhostel bar - where lights reflected in the window created the star effect. I’m sure some would prefer the photo without them, but I like it - a bit of sparkle to remind me Iceland is a pretty magical place 🙂
