Blue Lagoon Girl in Rain

From Sea to Soul

Images of Icelandic volcanoes, glaciers, waterfalls, thermal pools and other geological wonders have been hot commodities on travelers’ social networks for the last few years. Set on a lunar-esque landscape, this Artic island, where 350 thousand locals call home, is a popular destination for travelers looking for outdoor adventure, creative cuisine, and collecting memories supported by images. Modern wanderlusts showcase images on their Instagrams posed in the infamous Blue Lagoon, by waterfalls, on vast black beaches, and with exotic food fare.

Icelandic culinary traditions have been refreshed and rediscovered. The reason the food fare has become gained international acclaim goes beyond talented chefs. We offer unique flavors, a global lifestyle feel, wild ingredients, gamey tastes, all with an added wink.

 

Though the natural beauty can translate in images, the magical energy of this strange and stunning island doesn’t. The statuesque landscape beholds an unparalleled aura and natural energy, undoubtedly from the powerful connection between glaciers, volcanic activities, natural hot springs, and dynamic waterfalls. Bathing in natural geothermal pools and hot springs enlivens mindful thinking. Intuition or innæi, is our main muscle in creativity. Icelanders are highly aware of this and believe that seeing inside or listening to the sea within (the meaning of innsæi), guides us forward.
