Experience Iceland in North America

Did you catch Icelandic band Sigur Ros on Game of Thrones last month? If it left you thirsty for a taste of Iceland, then you should stop by Whole Foods and pick up some Icelandic Glacial Water! We’re excited to announce that Icelandair will begin service from Vancouver this month! To celebrate, Icelandair held a social media scavenger hunt to give away free round trip-tickets to Iceland. Icelandair will bring the scavenger hunt to D.C. next! D.C. will also host Icelandic composer Anna Thorvalsdottir for a concert at the Atlas Performing Arts Center.

News About Iceland


The Wall Street Journal published an article on a truly beautiful Icelandic summer home that took one family nearly 10 years to complete. Mashable included Iceland’s Vatnajökull in its list of the best Game of Thrones-inspired vacation spots. However, Game of Thrones isn’t the only major production being filmed in Iceland, as the L.A. Times pointed out. Aside from a generous production rebate, beautiful sites like the Seljalandsfoss waterfall draw Hollywood film crews to Iceland. 

Happening in Iceland


While most North American and European ski locations are closing up for spring, Iceland’s northerly latitude means ski season is still in full swing! If you’d rather take to the water than the slopes, try surfing in northern Iceland's freezing waters like this group of pros. Meanwhile, in southern Iceland, two photographers got engaged in the hauntingly beautiful ice caves of Vatnajokull and Reykjavik will host the Eistnaflug Music Festival, one of music world’s best-kept secrets, this summer.
