What you need to know about volcano tourism in Iceland

Volcanic activity in Iceland has been rumbling on for months, centred around the Reykjanes Peninsula near Reykjavík, in the southwest of the country. After multiple earthquakes, the most recent series of eruptions kicked off at the end of 2023, when an explosion along a 2.5-mile fissure sent lava into the air a couple of miles northeast of the fishing village of Grindavík; another followed shortly afterwards.

Interview With Funny Phil Rosenthal: New Season Of ‘Somebody Feed Phil’

Award-winning Somebody Feed Phil—the delectably illuminating food-travel show hosted by big-hearted, energetic funnyman Phil Rosenthal on Netflix—premieres its 7th season on March 1. The series’ eight new episodes spotlight Dubai, Mumbai, Kyoto, Taipei, Washington D.C., Orlando (with a twist), Scotland and Iceland. Rosenthal’s TV career is rooted in comedy. He was the creator, writer, executive producer and showrunner of the sitcom Everybody Loves Raymond, starring comedian Ray Romano, which ran for nine seasons on CBS. These days, Rosenthal’s well-fed, globetrotting gallops have inspired an enormous fan following. Rosenthal and I recently sat down to dish up behind-the-scenes scoops, sentiments and surprises about the new season. (Stay tuned for my upcoming Forbes review of Somebody Feed Phil.)

On Location: How ‘True Detective: Night Country’ Turns Iceland Into Alaska

The nail-biting action of True Detective: Night Country takes place in the fictional town of Ennis, Alaska—a.k.a., “The End of the World.” Although the filmmakers, led by creator and showrunner Issa López, did go on a research trip to Alaska, the HBO series really came to life in Iceland, where most of the episodes were shot on location, at night, in the dead of winter. It was a massive undertaking for series producer Mari-Jo Winkler and production designer Daniel Taylor, who spent 14 months in Iceland to prep and shoot.

Boston's Creative Seafood Scene Shines Brightest in Winter

When the explorer Bartholomew Gosnold arrived at the Cape of St. James in 1602, he was so taken by the abundance of the fish there that he renamed it Cape Cod. Within years, New England soon cemented itself as a global leader within the fish trade, and some four centuries later Boston still owns its reputation as a seafood town. There’s something about the chilly, high-salinity North Atlantic waters that just produces excellent fish—and any local would admit that no visit here is complete without getting a lobster roll, chowder, or at the very least some fried clams.

This Low-cost Airline Is Celebrating Valentine's Day With $99 Flights to Iceland — or a $129 Europe Stopover

A new low-cost airline is giving passengers the opportunity to travel to two different countries for the price of one.  This week, Play Airlines announced a new sale that provides discounted fares combined with the opportunity to add a multi-day stopover in their main hub of Reykjavík, Iceland. For example, a traveler can book a ticket from Boston Logan Airport to Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport, and add a several-day visit to Iceland in the middle, for no extra charge.  The carrier operates services in the United States departing from New York (SWF — Stewart International Airport), Boston (BOS), Baltimore (BWI), and Washington (IAD). The flights often connect in Iceland to various destinations in Europe including London, Paris, Amsterdam, and Berlin. The fare sale offers $99 flights to Iceland from the U.S., or $129 on fares that continue to one of the Europe destinations. The promotion is valid from now through Feb. 6 at 11:59 p.m. EST for travel through December, with the exception of June, July, and August. The maximum stopover in Iceland is ten days. The fares include all taxes and are booked in the «PLAY Basic» category, which only includes a personal item. Travelers can bring carry-on or checked bags for additional fees.
