Reykjavik, the world’s most northerly capital, is a little-known gem of a destination. Relax in the swirling steam of geothermal swimming pools. Dine on fresh fish in one of many celebrated restaurants. Explore galleries and museums filled with fascinating Icelandic and international works. Enjoy nature's own artistic palette awaiting you in the nearby countryside.
The country is a natural wonderland with its volcanoes, geysers, waterfalls and ancient mountains. Learn how Iceland's unique geology has been sculpted by fire and ice over eons. Straddle two continents as you step onto the Mid-Atlantic ridge, the boundary between North American and Eurasian tectonic plates.
There is a distance for every level of fitness. Choose either the marathon, half-marathon, 10K, marathon relay race, or 3K fun run. You will be joined by hundreds of Icelanders in perfect running temperatures and the cleanest air imaginable since the entire city is heated with geothermal energy.

Snaefellsnes extension tour: it had two things I really was pumped about - the Viking Sushi tour (i love that kind of fishing experience stuff) and the Shark Museum (I recently just published a book about sharks and was dying to try hakarl that was in the book and frequently mentioned on my show.) Also Stykkisholmur was just a great local town, a lot less touristy and a lot more character. The public pool there is super underrated and it's such a treasure!!!
So many things to list. Weather was a total blessing - nothing like 5 days of sunshine and blue skies with 60-degree weather. Planning was superb - never had to worry about where to be. This made the more nervous members of my travel party feel less anxious. The race course was beautifully laid out, easy to follow. Iceland itself was positively wonderful - the scenery, the stops on the tours, the people we meet, the ease of the experience - so laid back. There honestly isn't a single thing I didn't like.
