Planning & Packing For A Winter Iceland Trip

I absolutely love planning trips and creating itineraries for wherever I go - but planning a trip to Iceland in winter was HARD. The limited daylight hours mean you have to meticulously plan what you can see, and the cold weather means you have to pack so much more than, say, a few days in… Continue reading Planning & Packing For A Winter Iceland Trip
