Join our Community of Iceland Lovers & Travelers

Every week, Aðalbjörn and Steffi let you learn more about the land of fire and ice. How to travel light, Do’s and Dont’s, great stories, and little-known mysteries. Get to know Iceland inhabitants, their everyday life, and what makes this island so unique.

I’ve been listening to tons of Iceland travel podcasts since booking our 2021 trip. This is by far the best! Packed full of really useful and interesting information. You get to hear the point of view from a local and an outsider. Funny, sweet and well informed hosts!

About the show

Glaciers, Volcanoes, Northern Lights, and Puffins are some of the first things people associate with Iceland. We want to add unpredictable weather, long roads, strong wind adventures.

We have seen Iceland visitors coming and going, hearing all kinds of questions and giving helpful tips. Now we want to help you prepare for your Iceland adventure, what to pack, where to go, and how to save money and time.

On the way there, you can get to know Iceland’s culture and people, from the perspective of a native and a German who left everything behind to move to Iceland. Hear stories and old myths, Steffi and Allis first-hand experience and useful travel knowledge. Every week! Thank you for tuning in.
