I feel so lucky to have been in so many parts of Iceland! I know now the hidden treasures and spots that are worth a detour, a visit or even a contemplation. I'm working in environment protection and I have always been attracted by this vast and unspoilt island and its many birds. I can give you tips for your trips to Iceland, and, of course, some small spots where you will be able to observe the local wildlife! Instagram: @icelandic.frenchies

J'ai la chance d'avoir pu arpenter l'Islande en long en large et en travers... je pense connaître les coins qui méritent un détour, une visite voire une contemplation. Je travaille dans la protection de l'environnement et j'ai toujours été attirée par cette vaste île vierge et préservée et par ses nombreux oiseaux. Je peux vous donner des conseils pour vos voyages en Islande, et, bien sur, sur quelques petits coins pour observer la faune locale ! Instagram : @icelandic.frenchies

Summer is Coming | Activities, Excursions and Tips!

I've already written an article about my favourite season in Iceland (winter :) ) and its most famous activities but I must say that summer is really great too. As a bird lover, summer is a dreamy season for birdwatching. Summer means also endless days, hikes, access to remote areas that you cannot reach during winter. Don't think about seeing the Northern Lights during summer but let's be fair, you will easily forget about them as there are so much more to do!  In this article, I will share some recommended activities as well as some very worthwhile excursions. This blog is not intended to b

Jökulsárlón, I Love You!

So yes, when we think of Iceland, we all have pictures of ice, glaciers and..... of Jökulsárlón (pronounced Yeu-Kul-SaOr-leun). This is also one of my favorite places in Iceland, magical, hypnotic... I love it so much that even after 25 times there (!!!), I always take my camera and pictures. Special light, iceberg colors from blue to black, high tide or low tide, seals playing in icebergs, terns fishing in the lagoon or resting on icebergs, great skua that contemplates the sea ... so many unique moments that I would be "almost" frustrated to not have my camera with me.

Raufarhólshellir : experience an adventure in a lava tunnel !

After many years around Iceland, visiting the most exciting sites, I wanted to go on an ice cave tour (see here)... but it turned out that the tour got cancelled as there was a massive wind storm coming by the east of Iceland! At first, I got disappointed but then I just jumped on the occasion to do something else as I was stucked in Skaftafell : hiking in the park and brave the elements! Iceland is like this : you can plan whatever you want, the weather is always the boss! Cliquez ici pour voir l'article en français. Since I couldn’t reschedule my ice cave tour, I wanted to do something c

Either winter is coming or winter is here, tips you need to know

What time of year should you visit Iceland? If you ask me, I will probably answer that it depends on your expectations! My favourite season is winter: I love freezing myself, especially in Iceland. Winter makes all the landscapes white, the days short and the sunlight make them look even more beautiful as the sun lazily rises and sets. You also have the chance to be amazed by stormy skies, which paint the sky with shades of yellow, orange, blue, pink, sometimes all at the same time. The long nights are quite special when you're standing outside in the dark and then suddenly you're surrounde

Askja, between the moon and mars, floating in space!

Since a long time, I wanted to explore the remote places of the highlands and especially Askja. As many of the sites in the Highlands, Asjka can only be reach by a 4x4 and I must say, after being on the road, that you cannot by the smallest 4x4 you can rent! They are a few rivers to cross and one is quite deep and subject to quick level changes as it's a glacial river. I decided to book a day tour to Askja, as I was in Myvatn on holidays for few days. Myvatn is accessible by the ring road : 6h from Reykjavik, 1h20 from Akureyri, 2h10 from Egillstadir. If you are in the north of Iceland, it's

Kerlingarfjöll, the land of ice and fire in the Highlands

Well, I must admit that when I think of Iceland, I think about ice, glaciers and also volcanoes, steam, geysers... Volcanic activity is what brings me the first time in Iceland, as I remembered the eruption of the Eyjafjallajökull in 2010, that almost killed my holidays :) It's not called the land of ice and fire for nothing. I had the chance to have both ice and fire in a place called Kerlingarfjöll in the Highlands. It's so beautiful.. especially during a sunny day ;) Consultez ici l'article en français What's Kerlingarfjöll? Kerlingarfjöll is an amazing spot in the Highlands. Kerlinga

Ingólfshöfði, a Puffin Paradise Near Skaftafell !

Ingólfshöfði (a difficult name to pronounce) is the destination not to be missed for bird lovers. Ingólfshöfði, an Icelandic toponym literally meaning "Ingólfur's residence", is a cape of Iceland measuring 75-meter-high and is an ancient island of the Atlantic Ocean. The site is the supposed place of the first berthing of Ingólfur Arnarson, the first permanent settler of Iceland, in the 9th century. Cliquez ici pour voir l'article en français. Why go to Ingólfshöfði? I must admit that I love history but what I love the most is birds: Ingólfshöfði is a wonderful natural reserve where man

Glacier Hiking Experience, Tips You Need to Know

When you travel to the land of fire and ice, it's difficult not to be tempted by a glacier hike. There are several spots where you can go on a hike: the departures are either from Skaftafell, or from the Sólheimajökull parking lot. From Skaftafell hikers normally go to the Svínafellsjökull glacier (a part of Vatnajökull glacier), but Sólheimajökull is a part of Mýrdalsjökull glacier. It is, of course, also possible to book a tour from Reykjavik, check the tips below. I must warn you that you should only ever book with an agency and not go alone onto the glaciers, as they are dangerous and

Birdwatching in Látrabjarg : a perfect place in the Westfjords for puffin lovers

Látrabjarg (LaO-tra-byarrg) is still a destination not to be missed for bird and puffin lovers. Látrabjarg is located in North West Iceland, in the Vestfirðir peninsula, and in the westernmost region of Europe. Its coastline are made of cliffs fourteen kilometers long and rising to an altitude of 440 meters. The cliffs are home for millions of nesting seabirds, including the Razorbill whose population on this site represents 40% of the world's population of this species. They also shelter the largest puffin colony in the world. Cliquez ici pour voir l'article en français Why Go to Látrabj

Skaftafell: The Spot That You Can't Miss!

Skaftafell National Park is definitely my favorite place in Iceland! I was a volunteer for two and a half months and I walked the park through all the hiking paths! In my opinion, Skaftafell is a site you can't miss if you come to Iceland. The landscapes, the proximity of the glacier, all the different kind of activities that you can practice there are reasons why you must stop in Skaftafell, not to mention that the park is accessible all year and by the ring road!
