Margrét and Sölvi will cover:

  • Everything you’ve ever wanted to know about traveling to Iceland
  • Why are constant volcanic activities a normal part of their lives
  • What are the top attractions not to miss in Iceland
  • How difficult is it to hike in Iceland & the best trails for beginners
  • What’s must-know info about weather, gear, logistics, accommodation, and more
  • Anything you’d like to know – it’s a Q&A, after all!

They don’t call it The Land of Ice and Fire for nothing—Iceland has forever lived with volcanic and glacial activity. That’s what makes it one of the most unique and spectacular places on Earth.

With its otherworldly landscapes, being in Iceland will feel like being on another planet. It’s one of the hottest destinations right now for outdoor adventurers, but with all the information online, organizing holidays there can get overwhelming.

That’s why we’ll have local guides joining us for a FREE Q&A SESSION, where you’ll get to ask them anything you’ve ever wanted to know about traveling to Iceland. They’ll talk about the best time and areas to visit, what kind of accommodation, weather, and gear you can expect, as well as how to plan and prepare for your adventure in Iceland.

Another thing your guides will address are minor and major eruptions which have been occurring every few years since the island was formed. They’ll talk about what life is like with these natural phenomena and why the recent eruptions have not affected air travel or any other services. And most importantly, our local guides will take away any concerns you might have about traveling to and being in Iceland.

Looking to visit this marvel of a country, regardless if it’s in a couple of months or a couple of years? Make sure to tune in.
