About Me

Hey, I’m Jeannie!

Iceland lover, waterfall seeker, adventurer, virtual tour guide

In 2014, my husband and I visited Iceland for the first time on our honeymoon. We were HIT HARD with the beauty and nature of this country.

The impact Iceland had prompted us to completely uproot our lives, sell everything we own, and call this country home! That was 2015. 

Since then, I’ve traveled all over Iceland! I’ve repeatedly driven the Ring Road, ventured through the Highlands and Westfjords, found hidden gems (aka Jeannie’s gems) around the Golden Circle, road-tripped through the South Coast, hiked glaciers for breathtaking views and hunted the Northern Lights! 


Iceland With a View is all my knowledge, expertise, tips, and advice for people planning to visit Iceland. I don’t just tell you all the basic must-do’s or favorite sights… 

I help you consider…

  • The best time of year to visit based on what you want to experience
  • What to pack
  • The best gear to wear
  • How much time you’ll need to see all the things

I’ve created Google Maps resources to tell you where the bathrooms are, gas stations, ice cream spots, and more!

My mission is to make planning for Iceland FUN and EASY! I want you to have the best.trip.ever. My goal is for you to experience everything Iceland has to offer – beauty, culture, and nature, with an itinerary you feel confident and excited about!
