With Wow Air and Iceland Air now serving the USA, it has opened a whole new door for cheap transatlantic flights to Europe (and therefore England)! Whether you’re going to Iceland to explore the country or just to use it as a stopover for an onward flight, here are some practical tips that I picked up during my trip to Iceland in April.
I hadn’t heard of Icelandic Hill Climbing (also known as Formula Offroad) until my Dad told me that he wanted to go to Iceland. He’d found an experience to be a passenger in a crazy 820bph (brake horse power) nitrous powered off road buggy that is capable of going up near vertical hills and can even aquaplane across water. He needed a ‘buddy’ to lower the cost of the trip and I was the only one that could help him tick this mission off his bucket list! Formula offroad is a popular motor sport in Iceland, they hold competitions that include: hill climbing, offroad tracks and freestyle, it’s a sport that’s even reached the USA now!

As a part time traveller and living in the UK, Easter is a great time to travel as it means extra ‘public holiday’ days off work! It almost means that I’ve been able to experience how other cultures celebrate Easter and Iceland tops it when it comes to their AMAZING Icelandic Easter Eggs. Iceland has its own chocolate factory ‘Noi Sirius’ located just outside of Reykjavik. Noi Sirius were established in the 1920s and are the masters behind these eggs!
