3 Days in Iceland

DAY 1 

Transport: WowAir - a quick 2h flight from Dublin but it was neither cheap nor comfortable. Be careful of their baggage scam and flight attendants with stinking attitudes.

Accommodation: AirBnb - this arty apartment was ideally located and the hosts were lovely.

Evening: Wander the streets and then chase the Northern Lights on a Private Magical Northern Lights Tour. Get collected in your super-jeep at 8.30pm for 4-5hrs of exploration. 

*Book a Northern Lights tour for your first night because tours are often postponed to the following night due to poor weather conditions.

Dinner: Icelandic Fish and Chips, the best on the island.

 

DAY 2

Full day Golden Circle Super Jeep tour with snowmobiling on Iceland's second largest glacier. This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that you will remember for the rest of your life. Waterfalls, hot geysers, tectonic plates, glaciers, it's simply incredible. 

Dinner: Fishmarkadurinn is the best fish restaurant in Reykjavik. Book a table for about 9pm to allow for a much-needed nap after a full day of explorations.
 
Drinks: Kaffibarinn is a cool, cosy spot. I normally break out in a rash when someone suggests going to an Irish bar on holidays but The Dubliner is actually decent for a game of cards. It's also the only place where drinks aren't extortionate. 
 

DAY 3

Spend the morning wandering around the quaint little city, stopping off at Le Bistro for a wholesome bowl of onion soup. Check out the National Museum of Iceland and discover Iceland's unexpected connection to Ireland. 
 
For the afternoon, relax at the world renowned Blue Lagoon. This place is breathtaking. Try not to be that person who takes too many selfies but do avail of the Experience Premium Package to take full advantage of what the Blue Lagoon has to offer. 
 
* Make sure you book your time-slot well in advance because it books up very quickly. 
 
Dinner: For something special on your last night, eat at Grillmarkadurinn. Wonderful food, great cocktails, cool Scandinavian decor. What Nobu is to Japanese cuisine, Grillmarkadurinn is to Icelandic. It costs a bomb but the food is worth it.
