Iceland – The Land of Ice and Fire, the land of elves and trolls, the land in which we spend our 5 months semester abroad.
We have traveled around the island with a car and since August 2016 we live here every single day. If you want to know, who we are, visit: About us
On this page you will find everything special we notice about the country and all the little stories we experience, as well as our tips for people who want to travel to Iceland:
The week before Christmas we went on a hunt for the famous Icelandic winter and it looked as if we wouldn’t find it… but then, over night, it found us!

Following route 1 – also called the ringroad – we took a car all the way around Iceland. We summarized our experiences in one post for each day.

After having crossed the Highlands by foot last week, we know rented a Superjeep to undergo the experiences like Ricer Crossing in a full-grown monstertruck as well… Our private Superjeep-Tour
Check out the video of our Superjeep-Tour: Iceland Highland 4×4 Adventure
Last weekend we spent a night in the Icelandic highlands to shoot northern lights. Check out the results here: Northern Lights – Video
Or: How we managed to see neither of them and almost got us killed instead 😀 All about what happened – and why this is probably the most expensive trip we ever did in Iceland: Westman Islands – Home of vulcanos and puffins

Been cut by sheep already today? No? – Well then you have probably not been driving with a car in Iceland!

Sitting in the car, wrapped in my sleeping bag, starring outside the skylight and waiting for something to happen… And then suddenly the sky is plated with a bright green light! More about the background of the Northern Lights – Video and plenty of cool pictures you can find in the following article: On the Hunt for Northern Lights
After having spent a whole night hunting for the Solheimsandur plane wreck, we now decided to give it another try: Plane Wreck – But it does exist!
It had been a long time since I rode a horse… But that didn’t stop me from choosing the fast-riding-group!! (And from hopping up and down on each step so hard I was sure to never feel my bottom again :D) Lavatour – Iceland on Horseback
Everybody who stays in Reykjavik temporarily should once hike the city mountain! But what started as a paseo with our friend’s two grandchildren turned out – as the meters in atlitude rose and the temperatures fell – to be a hardcore climbing experience… Mount Esja – The city mountain of Rekjavik
It’s true, the main purpose of our stay in Iceland is to explore the country. But, to have an alibi, we also have to study a little bit 😛 Actually we do spend more time in uni, than we had expected. In this post we give you some insight how Icelandic universities work: Uni in Iceland
Going abroad requires, besides a lot of hype (which we definitely had from the beginning!), a bit of planning. We will post everything you need to know about that on our site at Studying abroad. In this post we tell you about how we came to the idea of moving to Iceland: How everything started
