I recently had the opportunity to go to magical Iceland and immediately jumped on the opportunity. It was truly one of the best trips of my life! I am sure you’ve heard by now how unique and special Iceland is and I am here to report that it really is one-of-a-kind. Magical Iceland is the only way to describe the serene and peaceful heaven on earth. Also, it is surprisingly easier to get to than I expected, especially from New York. From hot springs to unique dining at a tomato farm, it is a place full of unique experiences. Below I have included some of my recommendations. Also the beauty in the photos is my mom who went with me. Can’t wait to go back!
Magical Iceland Recommendations:
Hotel: Kvosin (www.kvosinhotel.is) – Contemporary hotel in the heart of Reykjavik with a cozy bar on the main level
Lunch: Fridheimar (www.fridheimar.is/en) – A unique, fantastic dining experience at a tomato farm where you’ll enjoy a hearty meal of foods that include their fresh tomatoes. It is an absolute must!
Dinner: Grillid (www.grillid.is) – Enjoy a coursed meal with the most incredible views of Reykjavik, seriously the food was beyond stellar!
Shopping: Laugarvegur Street
Adventures: Blue Lagoon, Secret Lagoon (www.secretlagoon.is)
Tour Guide: Ýmir Björgvin Arthúrsson (www.magicaliceland.is) – I can’t even begin to tell you how amazing Ymir is, so do yourself a favor and request him specifically as your tour guide. He was born and raised in Iceland and consequently knows it like the back of his hand. He may be my favorite tour guide of all time!
