If you’ve been reading my articles about spas around the world, you might have noticed an emerging pattern. If you haven’t — newsflash: I seem to have taken a liking to getting buck naked in public. I mean, who doesn’t? Right? Righhhhhhttttt? Anyone? Well, ok, fine. Today, for a change, let me tell you about this one time in Iceland when I did not in fact get naked at the spa. It does happen, sometimes. But can you go to the Blue Lagoon naked? What is wrong with you, you perverts!
If you are traveling from America to Europe, then taking Iceland self drive tours is a brilliant idea, as it is pretty much smacked in the middle and it is honestly one of the most fascinating countries I have ever been too. Icelandair understood that and is now offering up to a seven-day layover at no additional cost on many trans-Atlantic routes. Once you’re in Iceland, because of the poor public transport system outside of Reykjavik, there are two ways to explore all the things to do in Iceland: either by A – joining a group tour (and you may have read that it isn’t exactly my thing…) or B – by renting a car and doing your self drive Iceland trip like a big adult baby.
When I started researching options for where to eat vegan in Reykjavik, I honestly wasn’t expecting much of vegan Iceland from a nation that eats puffin, shark and whale. But there is nothing I love more than being proven wrong about something, and Reykjavik emerged quickly as one of the most vegan-friendly places I have ever travelled to. For such a small capital, Reykjavik boasts more vegan-friendly restaurant options that I could visit in 10 days and the options were as diverse as they were exciting. Looking for a vegan brunch Reykjavik spot? They have it too. Here are my picks for vegan Reykjavik. I would love to know if I missed anything, so please let me know!
Reykjavik is definitely a bucket list destination for many and is growing in popularity by the day. It’s really no surprise — it is bloody beautiful.

Have your camera equipment charged and ready to go and enjoy a lovely stay at one of the best hostels in Reykjavik in store for you.
Do you sometimes think you’re a little too cool for organized tours, yet you’re often feeling too lazy to go through the hassle of researching your next travel destination and wished someone would just do it for you? C’mon, just admit it, we’ve all had those thoughts. Ha, I’m kidding! Kinda… Tour groups can be a great way to travel, especially if you are a solo traveller, but what I want to talk about today is a fantastic new way to have your itinerary all sorted and activities cherry-picked for you while retaining all the freedom of independent travel. Sounds too good to be true? Planning a trip to Europe soon or maybe you’re just a master-procrastinator and want to do a bit of daydreaming? Enter the award-winning trip-planning platform TripCreator.
