What’s On in March in LGBTQAI+ Iceland?

March is a month of transition in queer Iceland. As the winter gradually loosens its grip, there’s a palpable sense of anticipation in the air. The days are perceptibly longer, promising the imminent return of sunlight and warmth. Despite the lingering chill and sporadic snow, March holds its own charm for those visiting or residing in Iceland.

While snow may still cloak much of the landscape, March marks the beginning of a gradual thaw. It’s a time when the country emerges from its winter hibernation, awakening to the promise of spring. For LGBTQ+ people, this transitional period offers a unique opportunity to experience Iceland’s queer scene in a distinct light.

March is an ideal time to explore the diverse LGBTQ+ events and gatherings across Iceland. From Reykjavik’s bustling queer events to intimate community gatherings in smaller towns, there’s something for everyone. As the tourist crowds begin to trickle in, it’s still possible to enjoy popular attractions without the summer rush.

Icelandic queer communities are known for their resilience and creativity, and March is no exception. Despite the lingering winter blues, there’s a vibrant array of events and activities to keep spirits high. Whether it’s theatre shows, comedy, meetings or lively social gatherings, there’s no shortage of ways to connect with the local LGBTQ+ community.

As March unfolds, so too does the promise of brighter days ahead. It’s a time of transition, so grab your coat, embrace the crisp air, and join in the celebration of diversity, resilience, and community that defines LGBTQ+ Iceland in March.

So, we always start with our taste buds and follow our instincts. Our team searches for the finest ingredients in the world and new ways to improve chocolate. This obsession with knowing where our ingredients come from has led us around the corner to dairy farms in the Icelandic countryside and all the way to rainforest cacao farms of Nicaragua.

        Blue Lagoon
        - One of the 25 Wonders of the World

        Named by National Geographic as one of the 25 Wonders of the World, the Blue Lagoon is a shimmering expanse of warmth, relaxation, and rejuvenation. Its unique geothermal seawater
        comes from 2.000 meters within the earth where seawater and freshwater converge in a tectonic realm of porous lava and searing heat. Propelled by extreme pressure, the water ascends to the earth’s surface, emerging enriched with silica, algae, and minerals—the elements that endow Blue Lagoon geothermal seawater with its radiant, healing properties.

        From its humble beginnings in the shadows of a geothermal power plant, Blue Lagoon has evolved into a world of wonder, now encompassing two hotels, three restaurants, three
        geothermal lagoons, a subterranean spa, a renowned line of skin care, a thriving research center, and a wealth of spa and refreshment facilities.

        Achieving harmony with the volcanic landscape, the lagoon and its surrounding architecture embody the unification of the man-made and the natural, and adhere to the highest principles of sustainability.

        The Blue Lagoon. A wonder of the world. A world of wonder.

          Ísey skyr
          - once tasted never forgotten

          Our Story
          Once upon a time, 1,100 years ago in fact, Nordic settlers began arriving in Iceland. They brought with them the skills and knowledge for producing skyr. As time passed, the know-how and recipe for this nutritious food slowly faded out elsewhere in the Nordic region. Luckily, the Icelandic skyr-making tradition continued.

          For centuries, Icelandic skyr formed a cornerstone of the national diet, helping to keep people strong in living conditions that were often harsh. On family farms countrywide, it was the women who nurtured this dairy and passing on both the recipe and the original Icelandic skyr cultures from mother to daughter.

          Ísey skyr builds on this remarkable legacy. It was some of those very same women, the recipients of their mothers’ expertise, who, around 90 years ago, taught Icelandic dairy scientists the art of skyr-making. The production process is more high-tech these days, and the quality standards more rigorous. However, the basic recipe and the use of original cultures to ferment the skimmed milk remain the same. Protein rich, fat-free, creamy and delicious – Ísey skyr is as relevant to consumers now as it was all those centuries ago.
          This is our secret and you are in on it

          You can read more about Ísey skyr on our website.
