If you are arranging a trip to Europe from North America (or vice versa), think about taking Icelandair for a stopover of up to 7 days in Iceland without a extra charge to your fares. Where I spend 72 incredible hours in Iceland, Connect me for #MyStopover with Icelandair!
My trip begins in the capital city of Reykjavik, that functions as my house basel of Iceland. I see the iconic Sun Voyager palaces, and Church of Hallgrimskirkja (with the most incredible views over Reykjavik), statue of Leif Eriksson and what is claimed (and confirmed) to function as the country’s most delightful hot dogs. Only 25 minutes outside the airport- Reykjavik is remarkable!
Next up during my stopover is a flight aboard the Hekla Aurora- the plane in the Icelandair fleet. Using brand new everything and its own miniature Northern Lights show about board- it worth the hype!
Out of here I consider property back and the flight in Reykjavik. The following day we drive to the Gullfoss Waterfall (Iceland’s hottest ), cover a visit to the area’s most famous geyser (going off 120 feet each 4-8 minutes), the ancient crater of Kerio and wash it all down together with Iceland’s best lamb shank at Frost & Fire Hotel (cooked underground from the geothermal heat!)
Stuffed from lamb & bread, we venture off on some views over Reykjavik and an ATV Safari for a outdoor experience. After the enjoyable, we return to some serious company with one of their most loved and despised foods in the world: fermented shark. I gut the test!! despite causing minor olfactory damage
I am able to live a dream of visiting with Iceland’s Blue Lagoon. A giant, man-made pool of waters, this pool is said to have incredible healing powers for all those suffering psoriasis. Each year, there! After a soak and scrub, I head back to the airport with Icelandair at the conclusion of #MyStopover. If you are traveling the Europe/North America route, be certain to reserve with Icelandair and make the most of this amazing travel opportunity!!
