Iceland: A treat for the eyes.

Okay. So, we’ve officially been back from Iceland for almost a week and we haven’t posted anything. In our defense, we have hundreds of pictures to sort though and we had such an incredible time that we don’t even know where to begin. We will say that Iceland is one of the most magical places that we’ve ever been and we’ve already vowed to go back in the future.

This past week has been spent uploading photos and footage while recovering from minor jet lag. Not wanting to leave you with nothing, we’ve decided to post a little sample of the beauty that we encountered while in Iceland. All of these pics are from our Instagram feed so our apologies if you’ve already seen them. If you haven’t, you might want to grab your sunglasses because some of these pictures are so damn HOT they might burn your retinas.

Behold, we bring you Iceland.

 

Yes, the Blue Lagoon is just as gorgeous in real life as it is in pictures.

So, yeah. It’s safe to say that Iceland is so pretty it hurts. We hope you enjoyed our pictures and we can’t wait to share more of our adventure with you. Be sure to check back here again soon as we have stories about trolls, haunted Viking caves, and Lola’s quest to become an elf whisperer.

Have you been to Iceland? Is it a place you would want to see for yourself? Let us know in the comment section below.

We decided to travel to Iceland because it’s been on our bucket list for years and we found ridiculously cheap airfare. While we would have done the trip on our own we were fortunate to partner with Tiny Iceland, Icelandic Farm Holidays, Trawire Mifi, and Sixt Rental Car. As always, all opinions are our own. Le duh.

    Great shots guys! Looks like you had a blast. I can’t wait to get to Iceland hopefully in the next year or two. I don’t think there is another country quite like it in the world which makes visiting pretty special. Looking forward to reading more about your experiences!

    Looks like a wonderful experience and those chunks of ice look impressive! Iceland is still on my bucketlist. Hope I can find the cheap airfare too.

    Iceland is one of those places whose story is best told through pictures and it looks like you guys did it right from this preview. It’s so captivating and a place I hope to return to many many times. Not surprised you fell in love too. (Shall we add it to our running list of places we should go together?) Thanks for bringing me back for a moment. Looking forward to more photos!

    We just found out about the free stopover deal in Iceland. Had we known this during our RTW. Iceland would’ve been a stop for sure! Also. That horse reminds me of Bon Jovi. Just sayin.

    Been to nIceland three (3) times, absolutely love it. I recommend going north, to Akureyri and the surroundings (Lake Myvatn, Dimmu Borgir) as well! And the Snæfelssness peninsula.

    Hey, loved this post! Both of you are truly an inspiration which is why I began my own travel blog, http://goinglost.com. Though I am only beginning to grasp travel writing and photography, I would love if you will check it out and give me some advice. Thanks!

    I don’t know how I managed to miss out on your guys’ fabulous blog for so long. What rock have I been living under?! I also lived in Korea for a while btw!

    I’m just catching up through a bunch of various posts and these photos are beautiful. Ugh, I’ve been dreaming of Iceland this year….it looks so amazing. Hopefully I’ll find time and get there soon!

    Iceland in 2015! That is my mantra for the rest of this year. Are there places you would put on a list to visit for families? Kids under 10? I can’t wait to see the Blue Lagoon and all of the ice. So beautiful.

    I love your pictures, the landscape is amazing and the hotel looks very interesting. I definitely put Iceland on my travel map as I love the snow and the filling of frozen air. By the way, how cold was it during your stay?

    We spent a week in Iceland last year and definitely plan to return – it’s a long way from Australia!
    We did daytrips from Reykjavik but would hire a car in future.
