ΜΥ TRIP TO ICELAND - REYNIFJARA, SELJALANDSFOSS, GLUGAFOSS, HEKLA

This is the final portion of my trip to Iceland. A trip so genuine, that truly produced me enjoy this spot forever.

 

My very first day was in Reykjavik and Eyrarbakki though the second a single started with beer tasting, continued with visits to regional farms and the most properly-identified areas of the island, such as the Þingvellir or Thingvellir National Park and the Gullfoss waterfall. The day ended with a classic Vikings meal, to pave the way for the third wonderful day at the island.

ΜΥ TRIP TO ICELAND – DAY three

 

The morning of the third – and sadly the final- day in Iceland was properly-spent as I enjoyed the sunrise at Hotel Rangá which is situated at the South side of the island.

 

If you are in a position to stop by Iceland, neglect the extended naps for a great explanation although. The white nights, particularly in the course of the very first days of summer season when the day is longer, are worth your early wake up. You will have the chance to get pleasure from the extended(er) day!

EXPLORING THE BLACK BEACH

 

The day started with Super Jeep Adventures from Midgard Adventures organization and our very first quit was the Black Beach a spot that I will actually under no circumstances neglect.

 

The Black Beach or Reynisfjara is on the South side of the island and is globally identified for its black sand. It is close to the fishing village Vík í Mýrdal and you can simply strategy it. The fierce Atlantic ocean ‘hugs’ the beach though the complete image of it is a tiny bit… unearthly. Iceland can be thought of as a large volcano considering the fact that it is actually above lots of volcanoes so it really is not strange that this beach has been produced out of ashes and lava.

 

It has been in the prime ten list with the finest, most particular beaches worldwide and let’s not neglect that Mother of Dragons walked right here -thumbs up if you are a GOT fan-.

CROSSING THE THOR VALLEY

 

The Thor Valley (god of Scandinavian mythology) or else, Þórsmörk area, was the spot exactly where we chose to commit our final afternoon. The area is really large and extends mainly to the South portion of the island, surrounded by lots of canyons, valleys, caves and mountains the magic nature of Iceland is identified in just a single spot

COFFEE Quit AT GLUGGAFOSS WATERFALL

 

Correct just after the Hot Dog meal, we had some coffee and hot chocolate with a view to Gluggafoss Waterfall.

 

Its geology is what tends to make this waterfall so one of a kind. It is essentially a mixture of waterfalls which are connected to the Merkjá river. All of them develop the key waterfall which is referred to as Merkjárfoss What is also particular about the connection with the river, is the creation of tunnels and “windows”, the popular “gluggar” ones, from which the water flows. 

 

If you want to get pleasure from the view behind the waterfall, never have second thoughts just do it!

THE ICELANDIC HIGHLANDS

And that was the moment I got at Highlands of Iceland. Spell “magic”.

The Highlands of Iceland are extended to an region of 40,000 square metres though the South ones have been developed just after the final Ice Age. When the ice melts and the nature is clear from it, the scenery is certainly dreamy. You ought to stop by this region, particularly in spring or even summer season, and lay upon the mossy ground -it really is the finest ground you will locate in the complete island!  

You can come by car or truck, as in other areas in the island as well, but make positive you ask the locals for the spots that are worth to stop by.
