This day trip to the Golden Circle from Reykjavik is a stress-free way to see some of Iceland’s most beautiful attractions. Don’t worry about mapping out an itinerary: Let your guide and driver take you to Kerid crater, the Blue Lagoon, Gullfoss waterfall, and more. Plus, your guide explains local history and geology that you wouldn’t learn traveling on your own.

I visited this museum also a couple of years ago, and was stunned again by the extensiveness of the information and topics. Certainly the first rooms took me a large amount of time, to soak in all the information and watch the many videos. This museum is absolutely worth the visit!

These are some of the most iconic images in fashion history. That silhouette of the Chanel dress with the full skirt which ended WW II austerity dressing and the front pages of so many Vogue and Harper's Bazaar magazines from the last 70+ years. The museum is tiny and an architectural gem in itself. For those not in the museum habit, this is a great place to start. Just two main rooms and a lovely café. A must see on a rainy day in Reykjavik.

This recently built museum offers a journey across the history of Iceland. Don't miss the LGBTQ brochure which provides insightful views of the Icelandic society from a different angle.
