Our tour guide was funny, knowledgeable and personable. She even sang me happy birthday and bought our bus candy to celebrate Women's Day. Plenty of stops for beautiful sights and restroom brakes in between. It was so nice to see all of the sights and get to nap in between while we fought jet lag.

We did the Blue Ice Glacier Tour and the Northern Lights Explorer, both of which were fantastic. The Glacier Tour included stops at some incredible local spots, and it was a once-in-a-lifetime experience to trek across the various terrains during the height of winter.

We signed up for a glacier hike on Sólheimajökull. We expected it to be cool; however, we didn't realize just how spectacular it would be!! Our guide (I wish I remembered her name), was so knowledgable, and this adventure really felt like an otherworldly experience--truly one of the highlights of our week in Iceland.
