In January 2018 our first recipients of the International Travel Awards spent a week in Iceland.

This exhilarating trip took in everything from a black sand beach to a glacier walk, the Blue Lagoon, tour of Reykjavik and visit to the university.

See what they made of it all in their vlogs or read Kameron Lord's blog.
