Learn From The Locals

Hey everyone! I hope everyone is doing well, staying home and healthy.

Firstly, I apologise for being extremely irregular with my posts, I’m struggling with ideas for my posts. However, I’m working on this problem. As I have discussed in my earlier posts, keeping oneself busy during quarantine is tough. Procrastination and endless naps get the better of us, unfortunately. So, let’s use this time to learn more about our world. You all may be aware of how much I post content on Iceland, but something is better than nothing, am I right?

Coming back, yesterday I received an email from Inspired by Iceland regarding a few webinars that are going to be hosted in the coming weeks.

They are launching a series of live webinars to educate and expand the knowledge of travelers. Focusing on Iceland’s six fascinating regions, these webinars will take a deep dive into each of the regions’ history, culture, experiences, and topography as well as accessibility for those visiting.

Each webinar contains a general introduction to the specific region followed by an overview of their hot spots and USPs, updates on new developments in the area, selling tips, helpful tools, and more.

How to join: Join each webinar with the links provided below, which will either take you to a video or live webinar on Microsoft Teams. 

Once you click on the link, you will be directed to page that will look like this:

WESTFJORDS

Isolation has preserved the region in relatively unspoiled wilderness. Largely uninhabited, Iceland’s Westfjords are frequently distinguished by travel guides as a destination of excellence.

NORTH ICELAND

The North of Iceland truly is a land of contrasts. Its long valleys and peninsulas are interspersed with mountains, lava fields and smooth hills carved out by rivers.

The first few minutes of this video are a must watch!

REYKJANES PENINSULA

The peninsula, with its diversity of volcanic and geothermal activity, is well suited to be a Geopark as it is the only place in the world where the Mid-Atlantic Ridge is visible above sea level.
