Inspired by Icelanders

Iceland is a small country, with a even smaller population… only 329,100 infact.
Although there is only a handful of Icelanders, Iceland is definitely packing a punch when it comes to talent, with a wide selection of role models from athletes, models, actors/singers, public figures, artists, designers, bloggers and entrepreneurs all of whom who have a wide following internationally, especially on social media. Here below is a selection of my favourite folks to follow on Instagram, who inspire, entertain and give us sneaky peaks of what life is like in Iceland.
Please note these are not listed in any particular order and there are so many to name that these are just a handful.

Anníe Mí
Well, of course Icelanders can brag about having numerous ”World’s Strongest Men” But what about this beauty Anníe Þórisdóttir?! The only woman to have won the CrossFit Games twice and have a spread in VOUGUE, yes Vogue!

Ragga Ragnars
Mother, wife, swimmer, writer, actress, model, blogger and mega babe Ragga has competed in the Olympics representing Iceland, has thousands of followers looking to her for daily photos and healthy lifestyle inspiration.

Fitubrennsla // Telma
Superwoman Telma competes in Triathlons and creates delicious healthy recipes and food inspirations with plenty colourful photographs that make it a joy to follow her and her lifestyle.

Birna Magg
This girl is amazing, everything about her is just brilliant to follow, her quirkiness, entertaining videos, honest product reviews and most of all her amazing make-up skills make her the one to watch.

Rannveig Hildur Gunnarsdóttir 
For all the ladies competing or thinking of competing in Bikini Fitness, Rannveig’s Instagram is full of fitspo, workouts and meal ideas. She recently placed 3rd in the world championships – not bad for this wee country!

This is just the perfect example of small inspiring businesses here in Iceland, Hlín operates her studio out of Reykjavik and hand paints all of her goodies, which are simple, yet stunning. She also works very closely with charity and part of the proceeds of her accessories will go to selected charities.

Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson –
aka Thor aka ”The Mountain” This actual mountain of man is a very strong man and a Hollywood actor, he enlightens everyone with his strong antics on Instagram.

The Police
Okay, so in Iceland the cops are very friendly, they don’t carry guns, they resuscitate cats and the take selfies to share with you all, not much else to say on that topic.
