2020 was a bit rough but we are happy to say that finally we are looking at much brighter times ahead.

APRIL 6th - TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS EASED

We're super thrilled about the latest news! Iceland's Justice Minister just announced that from April 6th everyone who can provide valid proof of a full vaccination or proof of prior infection will be exempt from travel restrictions to Iceland.

This means that we can finally start welcoming vaccinated travellers not only from the Schengen area but also from outside of Europe. Yaaay!!
