Photo Gallery: Behind the Scenes Pics from Our Epic Episode Shoot in Incredible Iceland

 

Iceland, we figure, is what the earth must have looked like back in its original, raw, rugged, wild, untouched and untamed days long before man or dinosaur or most any living creature came along. And it is right up there on the list of the most beautiful places we’ve ever been, for sure. What a place!

Of course, we’re not the only ones who feel that way obviously. Because these days Iceland is indeed practically overrun with throngs of tourists. Though not in all parts of the country, to be sure. The westfjords in particular were a joy to explore for so many reasons, one of them being the fact that it’s so remote and rugged that it’s still relatively free from people. And if y’all know us, you know we’ll do just about everything possible to avoid crowds. Which is one of the reasons we didn’t bother visiting the really crowded and popular places in Iceland (the famous Blue Lagoon comes to mind) and instead opted for a more non-traditional route around the island. No regrets either.

Our trip actually began when we boarded the Variety Cruises ship PanOrama up in the northern part of Iceland in a little town called Akureyri, and we spent the next week hopscotching our way around the north and western coasts, all the way down to Iceland’s capital city of Reykjavik. And it was absolutely epic! There were some ups and downs, some absolutely beautiful days and some rough and rowdy seas, and day after day of some of the most beautiful sights on planet earth. We took a bazillion photos of course, in addition to filming everything for the episode. And we thought we’d share some of the pics with you guys! And through them we hope you’ll get at least some sense of just what an amazing place Iceland truly is. Amazing!

So. Cheers gang! And a huge Texas-sized thanks again to our friends at Adventure Life and Variety Cruises for the opportunity! Hope y’all enjoy the pics, and have a great night!

    I loved Iceland. One night a few years back my husband decided he wanted to see the Northern Lights. So off we went to Iceland in the middle of winter to mark it off his bucket list. And it was a marvelous place to visit. The people were amazingly friendly and the landscape was stunning. And yes, we saw the Northern Lights! Can’t wait to go back and visit in the summer.

    • So so so wish we could have seen the lights! But there’s always next time. 🙂 But it is such a beautiful place! Cheers Terri!
