Welcome to Your Iceland Playlist!

So you’re heading out on an Icelandic road trip, & you want the best possible playlist…right?!  You’ve got big distances between major sites in Iceland, especially if you’re driving popular routes like the Golden Circle or the Ring Road (which circuits the entire country), or heading out to mega-popular Jokulsarlon Glacier.  Renting a car is ESSENTIAL in Iceland because of these distances, as is having a great playlist for your ride….so with that, welcome to your perfect Iceland playlist!

Perfect Iceland Playlist

Two essentials in Iceland: 1) Renting a sturdy car, & 2) Having a GREAT playlist!!

Iceland = Meant for Road Trips

Iceland is the one country where you HAVE to road trip.  It’s that simple.  Sure, you can hop on a big bus along with 50 other tourists.  BUT ~ if you are independent & adventurous ~ I highly recommend renting a car.  Go where you want, pull over when you want, & stay in each spot as long as you want: all hard to do when you’re on a massive tour bus.

I found this secret, epic spot for Icelandic sunsets by simply pulling over my rental car on the side of the road on the Keflavik Peninsula.

The Perfect Iceland Playlist!

So let’s set the mood for your Icelandic road trip with a soundtrack that matches the rugged, often desolate landscape.  It’s usually stormy, (always) windy, & in one day, don’t be surprised to see about four seasons worth of weather.  Songs that suit Iceland best are moody, sexy, & a little dark.  

Sugary pop music just doesn’t cut it in Iceland.  

Think instead, of artists like Of Monsters and MenThe Weeknd, Sia, Miguel, & Florence and the Machine.  Moody.  Dark.  Mysterious.  Enticing.  So let’s check out this mellow & moody Iceland playlist
