After four nights in Reykjavik, I’m back in a surprisingly snowy Paris. It was so nice to spend some quality time with my American girlfriends and I’m already looking forward to where our next girls’ getaway might take us! For those of you considering Iceland for your next vacation, I definitely recommend it. it’s such a beautiful country with delicious food, friendly people and some amazing outdoor experiences.
As with all my trips, here’s a link to access our Reykjavik itinerary. The one thing I would’ve changed was combine the Reykjavik sightseeing with the day we went to the Blue Lagoon, and used Sunday for another outdoor excursion – i.e. glacier hiking or riding an Icelandic horse. Here are some of my favorite pics from the vacation:
Bundled up to watch the Northern Lights.
View of Reykjavik City from the top of Hallgrímskirkja, the church in Reykjavik.
That’s some geyser!
Gullfoss Waterfall – Iceland’s most famous waterfall. Also known as “The Golden Waterfall”.
Getting a lesson in snowmobiling.
On top of a glacier!
My attempt at jumping on a glacier in oversized snow overalls with a slightly bum ankle. I swear my foot is off the ground…
This is the jeep that took us through The Golden Circle, off-roading and to the glacier for snowmobiling. I highly recommend Arctic Adventures!
We enjoyed slathering silica mud all over ourselves and massages at the infamous Blue Lagoon.

And last, but not least, a group shot from our Iceland Girls’ Getaway!
