Our itinerary:

– Landed in Keflavik and immediately rented a car from SADcars, www.sadcars.com as they seemed to have the best prices. A bit of advice here, consider opting for a larger SUV than your typical RAV4: we could barely fit all of our luggage and 3 people in such a tiny little car. We went straight to the Blue Lagoon, www.bluelagoon.com

– We mostly stayed at airBnBs or random guesthouses, which can be found at either www.airbnb.com and www.booking.com

– One of the coolest lodging options was ‘The Garage’ located enroute to Vik,

– Major excursions were all of the typical ‘must see’ options: lots of waterfalls, the DC-3 plane wreck, the ice cave and glacier lagoon (book with

– We traveled to Myvatn (which we called Martin), which is in northern Iceland. Driving up the east coast of Iceland is recommended, due to the fjords and vistas along the way.

– Cities we stayed in: Reykjavik, Vik, Hofn, Myvatn, Akureyri, Selfoss.

– Believe it or not, you *CAN* drive the entire ring road of Iceland in 1 week. Just be prepared for long days in the car, which is completely acceptable with such awesome scenery.

we're here at the North Pole with the Snug Harbor science true we've done a twenty two point seven kilometer hike towards the north part of the landmass we're going to drill down to the core to pull a nice sample I'm here with my science expert Lindsey Hatcher Lindsey just kidding we're actually still in Iceland and we're walking towards a really sweet waterfall called dettifoss we're at the Blue Lagoon and Iceland I thought of right Jimmy it's my thirty degrees outside and Durban 89 degrees cuz we're all know we're going to the corner over here so we were doing manmade non-natural with you however it is often on the first stop and it's on the way from the airport to Reykjavik so it's a good place to stop I'm like really amused by this and I really amused that we get to walk on a frozen sea so we are here in Reykjavik which is in northernmost city in the world this is a northernmost city in northern risk capital northernmost capital city in the world and fun fact the world's most expensive city in the world and we need to go over something about earlier bad in Busan we were at the Blue Lagoon we may have misstated a few things number one the lagoon itself is man-made however the water is heated by volcanic activity and sea water that comes up through the aquifers of volcanoes and it is naturally occurring as well as the silicon now the silicon that you put in your face it's really good for your skin you go get that from a little Hut so maybe when you saw Maggie and then they putting it on their skin maybe that was secondhand silicon that had come up brother to Google skin or they found six this light at the bottom of the balloon so there's that I think we've had enough of this prism so we're not in the city anymore because we saw enough to the city we've driven an hour to the east to a waterfall which we will show you so we're at a waterfall and you think set it just like really active the presence of volcanic activity at the tops forming the ice not right okay no not at all alternatives out fail is not an invention the word itself Dylan's thoughts in the 65-year waterfall if you look at the top of the cliff you'll see that that means the top of the sea floor and one of the ice ages is something like that the water has fallen out in the clip and we're not sure we're going to check on this but we think that maybe you really have waterfalls even in the winter here in Athens because the ice is top of the structure is melted by volcanic excuse normally in other places for the one for there is no water did we say so they'll kill him so feel this gel and pause subtitle here this is what the waterfall is called subtitle here there's a trail that we can hike up and it's over here we're going to go ahead and try to hike behind the waterfall there's a lot of water coming off of it you might have to put the camera under our jackets for the frigid journey the passage code was 2 inches thick of ice so you're pretty much is falling really low here I'm everything and not commence attention as we got over here I stop there with me today oh there's more falling hey so basically there's chunks of ice from 5 and 20 pounds falling from the top of the cliff this adds to the fun you know little weapon here open a camera win voice behind the waterfall this is your casual drive in Iceland look at that now we're in another waterfall scatterplots and there's an old legend that the sky one of the old founders of Iceland that suspended just a soul behind the waterfall awesome so we're going to the dc-3 plain racket to Old Navy plane wreckage I've been here for quite some time analysis themselves in places spending a long beginning cap as you'll see as we get them you'll be pretty neat you get your eyes ready I am saving it to be the best day ever and encompass our self headed into the ice cave supposed to be really pretty come on jolly oh you can hear water running yeah I don't like this Honda I don't want to go secret exit from ice cave we're going so scary change is windy there's more than one way to get in and out of a ice cave in a glacier how are we getting down god I don't watch that what the glacier like forms and melts and forms and melts and the water will carve out new caves as it runs out which you can see right here the only glacier one of the few glaciers overall is zero degree so it's constantly melting going back into the hole oh this is very vertical okay I can't see anything they call this diamond beating basically because all of the pieces of a glacier they come through this channel and in the ocean kind of meets in the debt crushes them and they wash up onto this Beach and house the sun shining clear is really pretty or converse sir so we came over to the side of the road where there are a lot less people which is amazing because it's a lot more natural and abandoned and I think that that's mostly what Iceland is we have this whole trail to ourselves and there's like nobody here and look at this you what are those seals potato fuels you behind us is another good reason to pull over in Iceland this is private land but the owner took offence and he set up instructional signs one of them says no no paper please respect our land one of them says danger at your own risk and don't take selfies on the edge of the cliff because you'll die picture give me a line as you read the sign this is Maggie keep asking where are we and the best explanation we can give is we are north of the wall we started seeing this fog in the distance which was with fog it was geothermal activity and there's so much of it up here the northern part of Iceland has a ton of geothermal activity and there's tons of hot springs like what you see behind me a lot of them have signs I say absolutely no bathing we tried to research it we tried to ask people but no one told us about any secret local free hot springs so we paid $40 and went into the safe very touristy resort like hot springs the grounds boiling bubbling smells like sulfur it's muddy here so if you come here know that it's money behind that's a very loud pile of rocks in Iceland they have loudrock I think really cool about this part of Iceland you look at these lava fields and since we're in the northern central area this land is only 700,000 years old whereas on the east and west coast item is like around 3 million years old so this is literally new earth super cool thanks blue we can train this you what you're doing there coupon I look at it and it's like you can really scrub it off how did this happen there's a lot about our socks into the hot tub so Eddie it's not bad because my sister made me do sauce Anita just so you know the reason I'm throwing these away we checked into our being Airbnb and then I got poo on it

  1. Some great clay pigeon shooting opportunities in Iceland. Well by 'Clay Pigeon' I mean drones. As for the jerks piloting them, 'please God, lead me not into temptation…'

  2. The blue lagoon is a total tourist trap. I have been to visited Iceland 4 time heading there again next week, and never would I suggest going here. Plenty of free and much more beautiful places.

  3. This video is so great to see! I'm going to Iceland at the end of March this year and I'm in between renting a car and traveling on my own OR booking a tour. I wasn't sure if you guys had a driver or booked a tour but any suggestions or insight would be highly appreciated. Great content!

  4. Many thanks, it was a good video. As a person with a disability, I would not be able to make some of the journey you did on your travels but your video gave me the opportunity to be there and this was a fantastic experience.

  5. Awesome vlog. Interesting to see how you captured some of the same spots I visited but portrait it in a completely different way. I would be honoured if you could check out my video and let know know you think 😀

  6. there is thousands of secret places of the grid and u will never get a icelander to tell u where they are cose they dont want u to know where they are they dont want it to be over runned by turists and blasted on youtube

  7. Hey, yep it was the best Iceland video I have seen till date!! I can't wait to go in January, need to get ready for the freezing cold weather. Thank you for your time and effort to put this together. I thoroughly enjoyed watching it!! Xx

  8. why do you poor people go to iceland in the winter ( i know cause its cheaper ) , now do you folks think that you guys are very good looking ? Coz all i can see is there's less of iceland in the vlog and more of your stupid faces ! Grow up ppl , no one clicked on this video to see your dull faces.

  9. Didn't you think the worst/funniest? part of the mud pots was how BAD it smelled?!! It was the worst. I thought it smelled ok then WHAM I'd get a whiff of the worst smell every jammed up my nose. We stayed a couple hours Ha! Loved every minute of Iceland and hope to go back.
