Welcome Home

Welcome Home

Best friends for more than 20 years we’ve dreamt about moving abroad and living somewhere wild for almost just as long. In 2015 we came to Iceland to spend a summer up north. We stayed, for good. Got married to two locals, adopted two cats, bought homes and found happiness. The kind you only find when you overcome your fears and follow your heart, whatever it may seek.

 

Dear Heima is an ode to life, to Iceland, to nature and to all those days spend in the wilderness. We cover our travels around the country, take you with us while hiking, biking, exploring and chasing our very personal dreams. Like getting a van, moving into a cabin, learning how to surf, start climbing, again and just overall grow closer and closer to our amazing planet and the Far North.

 

We try to live, eat and consume consciously. We believe in slow living, in soulmates, in endless possibilities, in finding your path, empowerment, honesty and well, love, we guess. This is a website for all those wild at heart who want to live fearlessly, take a leap, find peace of mind and believe all this is best found outdoors.
