As we branch into Iceland, we’re excited to showcase life in the country; the landscape, architecture, food and people. Lucky for us (and you!) there are lots of great photographers where you can get a peek into the beauty of Reykjavik and the whole of Iceland. As Instagram continues to grow, the ability to see the world through your phone becomes easier and easier. Take a look!
Here are the insta-photographers you need to know about:
In addition to a fun, informative photo account, IHeartReykjavik is also a blog that focuses on travel to Iceland – you can even take a tour with the creator, Auður! A great starting place for learning about Iceland.
Lögreglan á höfuðborgarsvæðinu (Reykjavik Police Department) @logreglan
It may seem strange, but the Reykjavik police department have become quietly famous for their adorable, lovely Instagram feed. Obviously everything here is low-key – no perp walks or high-speed chases – and for the most part, very cute (like an officer-with-a-golden-retriever-puppy cute).
Iceland Travel @icelandtravel
A gorgeous look at the seasonal Icelandic landscape, from mountains to waterfalls to lagoons to vast fields.
The Blue Lagoon @bluelagoonis
The official account of the Blue Lagoon thermal spa, this is a great account to get you excited about an upcoming trip or just to learn more about the lagoons. It’s almost a spa-experience just to go through their feed.
Stunning photography that focuses in equal part on Iceland’s natural surroundings and architecture in Reykjavik. The city-based Hans-Olav is a Norwegian architect and his excellent eye for buildings in their natural context is obvious.
Where to get food in Reykjavik? And what about when you’re feeling like the perfect cocktail, or a fresh salad? Let this account show the way with all the best places to eat and drink around town.
