In the context of the past 12 months, the news I am about to share is positively momentous: Iceland is now welcoming all travellers who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19, including citizens outside the Schengen area, such as the UK and the USA! Vaccinated travellers are also exempt from covid-19 related border measures, such as testing and quarantine, and are free to explore the country at their leisure. Only vaccinations authorized by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) are accepted, and this currently does not include the Johnson & Johnson Vaccine. With the current information, only international travellers with the vaccine are exempt from the border measures, and hence children would not automatically get a free pass. I ammonitoring the updates, and if this changes, I can let you know. See more information also here: Visit Iceland (link). The magic of travel is at your fingertips again, and I cannot wait to assist you with your plans! Working with 50 Degrees North, I can design private self-drive tour with premium inclusions, see our suggestion below.

Snorkelling in Silfra
Snorkelling in Silfra is one of Iceland's best-kept secrets. The water is so transparent that people have been known to get vertigo as they hover on the surface, floating as if on air over the fissure below.
