Iceland is fast becoming a bucket list destination for the jet-setting elite as seen on hit reality TV series Keeping Up With The Kardashians airing on the E! Entertainment network.
The Kardashian-West clan landed in Iceland to explore Iceland’s fiery South Shore and celebrate Kourney Kardashian’s 37th birthday. Hotel Ranga served as the luxurious home-base while Kim Kardashian-West, Kanye West, pal Jonathan Cheban and birthday beauty Kourtney Kardashian explored Iceland by Super Jeep. Hotel Ranga located on a lush salmon river in South Iceland with views of the famed Eyjfjallajokull Volcano.
The gang made stops to pose for selfies at Gullfoss “Golden” Waterfall, Geysir hot springs and a tasty lunch stop at a local greenhouse that serves organic, pesticide-free hothouse veggies grown from geothermally heated water.
While in Reykjavik #Kimye & Co stayed at the boutique-chic 101 Hotel where they did some city sightseeing including Hallgrimskirkja Church, easily the most recognizable building in the city.
