This week's instalment of our "Adventurer of the Week" series tells the story of Daniel and Amanda, two intrepid cavaliers from La Viva Vida Travel with big plans coming to Iceland without really knowing what they were getting themselves in for. They told us all about how they conquered their fears and took a million-too-many photo stops on their journey around Iceland. They glacier walked and ice climbed with us out in southeast Iceland and had a great time. Here they are, in their own words.
What motivated you to visit Iceland?
Honestly, Iceland wasn’t in our original travel plans. But then we saw some awesome flight deals from the USA, and decided to cut short some of our time there and spend it in Iceland for the landscape and incredible photo opportunities. It’s such a picturesque country and so much more beautiful than any photo could ever portray!
How long was your stay? Did you travel solo or with a group?
We spent 10 days in Iceland and hired a camper van to travel around the entire country via the Ring Road. We made a million stops along the way because of all the beautiful sights: you kinda just want to photograph everything! It was just the two of us too, so there was a lot of bonding time.
