Welcome to Your Iceland Playlist!
So you’re heading out on an Icelandic road trip, and you want the best playlist possible…right?! There’s quite a bit of distance between the major sites in Iceland, especially if you’re heading out to places like the #1 rated tourist attraction, Jokulsarlon Glacier ~ which you absolutely should! Places like this are hard to find anywhere else in the world…& Iceland is full of them. It’s a breathtaking country.
But, if you’re planning to explore a lot while you’re in Iceland ~ that means you’re going to be in the car….a LOT. Which means: you need the perfect Iceland playlist.
Because no road trip is complete without great tunes.
Iceland = Meant for Road Trips
Iceland is simply the one country where you HAVE to road trip. It’s that simple. Sure, you can hop on a big tourist bus along with 50 other gawking tourists. But if you have ANY kind of independent, adventurous spirit in you ~ I’d highly recommend renting a car. You can go where you want, pull over when you want, & get recommendations from locals about great secret spots to visit: all of which is hard to do when you’re on a massive tour bus.
Perfect Iceland Playlist!
So to make sure you have a rocking time while on the wide open roads of Iceland ~ let’s set the mood with a soundtrack that matches the rugged & often desolate Icelandic landscape. It’s usually stormy, (always) windy, and in one day, don’t be surprised to see about 3-4 seasons worth of weather. Thus, songs that seem to suit Iceland best are more moody, a little dark, & definitely sexy.
Sugary pop music just doesn’t cut it in Iceland.
Think instead, of artists like Of Monsters and Men, The Weeknd, Sia, Miguel, & Florence and the Machine. Moody. Dark. A little mysterious. Enticing. So let’s go ~ it’s time to check this playlist out. We’re off to Iceland with our mellow & moody Iceland playlist, side of sex courtesy of Miguel & The Weeknd…

Why I Use World Nomads
Whenever I travel ~ especially if I’m traveling solo, I always buy travel insurance. It gives me the peace of mind to go out and have all kinds of adventures, because I know someone’s got my back. Who do I use? World Nomads. They cover more ADVENTURE activities than any other company ~ from sky-diving to Icelandic spelunking to volcano-boarding. They’re not your average insurance company.
