Hello, dear friends of Iceland! My name is Konstantin. I am the Iceland travel enlightener. I spent many years to consult unexperienced tourists, organize tours and guide happy guests of Iceland. And my skills are high. I answer stressless to the stupid questions like Can I bathing in geysir? or Why Iceland is so expensive? Well, I am used to. My poor English could be totally enough to help you to prepare for the trip to Iceland. But my native language is Russian. So, you may write to me your weird questions about Iceland in both languages. Well, I am used to. If you have nothing to say but still curious, just check out my blog. I will try to write about something that hasn't been posted yet on Guide to Iceland. Hmm, it would not be easy. But I'm used to.

Local Breweries Around Iceland

Icelanders love beer. In recent year, the national brewing industry has exploded with more and more independent breweries popping up all over the country. Where can you find Icelandic breweries and what kind of beer can you find in Iceland? See Also: Top 9 Beers in Iceland For all you beer enthusiasts, I have compiled a comprehensive list of the breweries to be found around Iceland. What better way to embrace the local culture than to imbibe one of their favourite beverages? So, if you are driving across Iceland, or simply stuck for choice at a craft beer bar in Reykjavík, here is an intro

Nature and adventure next door to Reykjavik

Hello, friends Most of the requests I get from customers are classic day tours such as Golden Circle and South Coast. Without a doubt, this is a perfect option to spend the day in Iceland while you stay in Reykjavik. But what if I tell you about a vibrant, saturated day trip from Reykjavik which is twice closer to Reykjavik and not less interesting than every other day tours? I call this trip “Natventure next door to Reykjavik”, it covers 150 km total and fits for everybody who has a driver license and wants rent a car to make this trip self-drive. There is a plenty of beautiful spots in thi

Better than helicopter flight in Iceland could be only longer helicopter flight in Iceland

The main advantage of a guide´s job is exploring Iceland every day, find beautiful spots and enjoy adventurous activities. But if somebody asks me if I have to choose only one activity and do the same every day I would prefer without a doubt a helicopter flight in Iceland. Read more on Guide to Iceland: The Ultimate Guide to Helicopter Tours in Iceland Iceland from above is magnificent and I never get tired to be amazed. I am sure you have seen a lot of drone video of Iceland on Youtube, but neither 4K resolution picture, none most skilled drone pilot can give you that amazing feeling of fly

Leaving Iceland don't buy magnets. Buy true masterpieces

I try to avoid so-called “lundabúðar” — Puffin stores. That's how Icelanders call Souvenir shops. They are everywhere, sell the same stuff for the cosmic prices. Among other typical things, they are selling air, quite literally. Well, it is pure Icelandic air but essentially, is still just air. In my humble opinion if you want to bring something memorable from Iceland you have to find something more exclusive, more artsy, something that creator makes with love and inspiration, something Icelandic by soul and nature. Replicated magnets and t-shirts are not on that list. So what it may be? H

So, you are visiting Reykjavik for day or two, or you have a free day in the group multi-day tour and you want to spend it highly emotionally, adventurously so to speak. Circumstances force you to stay within Reykjavik but body and mind require for an adrenaline rush that numerous restaurants and museums can´t satisfy. You can get a dose of extreme without leaving the capital of Iceland. There are few options how you can satiate your day in Reykjavik: ATV and Buggy tours Basecamp of Safari Quads is only 20 minutes drive from Reykjavik city center.

Топ-5 активных развлечений в пределах Рейкьявика

Итак, вы в Рейкьявике всего на один-два дня или в вашем групповом туре выдался свободный день, который хочется наполнить эмоциями и приключениями. Нехватка времени или обстоятельства вынуждают вас остаться в городе, но душа и тело требуют выброса адреналина, а многочисленные рестораны, оригинальные музеи и вездесущие сувенирные лавки не могут удовлетворить такой потребности. Получить заряд экстрима можно и не покидая столицы Исландии. Вот несколько ярких примеров того, как можно насытить свой день в Рейкьявике:   Квадроциклы В черте города, в 20 минутах езды от центра Рейкьявика, есть бо

Как написать идеальный запрос на тур и вести переписку с гидом в Исландии

Здравствуйте, друзья Сколько раз вы сталкивались с тем, что гиды в Исландии/Италии/Франции/Испании/ далее по списку игнорируют или вяло реагируют на ваши запросы? Отвечают дежурными отписками и сухими цифрами. Прямо или косвенно отказывают вам в простейшей услуге или решении нестандартного запроса, не совпадающего с лекалами, по которым работает этот гид или даже вся местная туристическая индустрия. “Заинтересуйте меня!” — сколько раз я слышал эту волшебную фразу от потенциальных клиентов! Это звучит дерзко, но, чтобы получить отклик и реакцию гида, вы должны также заинтересовать его. Заинте

The Day when Iceland became great again

Today is the date when Iceland became great again. Bjórdagurinn is celebrated every year on March 1, honoring the elimination of the 74-year prohibition of beer. Prohibition lasted from 1915 to March 1, 1989. Just imagine an island far far on North where people have no joy to drink beer and you will realize how tough their Fridays was. Light has come and the darkness has been defeated! People of Iceland went crazy on 1 March 1989. Beer was sold out very quickly. Emotions were so great! In 1989 I didn't even know about Iceland. I didn't even know about a beer and alcohol as well. I was a kid

Bonus tracks for Golden Circle

Golden Circle is the most popular area in Iceland among travellers (oh, man, such a fresh idea!) I was there hundred times but still love it (yeh, tired to love it). Programme is classic: Thingvellir National Park, Geysir area, Gullfoss waterfall, Kerið the crater.  Sometimes local vendors adds to daytour Fontana Geothermal Baths in Laugarvatn to let customers take a bath and taste geothermally baked rye bread (I recommend). But if you travel selfdrive or book a custom tour you can ask your driver to add some beautiful spots which is not included in classic Golden Circle programme. This ph
