This is the final portion of my trip to Iceland. A trip so genuine, that truly produced me enjoy this spot forever.
ΜΥ TRIP TO ICELAND – DAY three
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 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-.
ΤΗΕ SELJALANDSFOSS WATERFALL
Subsequent quit was the popular and most Instagram-friendly waterfall, named Seljalandsfoss, Its uncomplicated access tends to make it a single of the most properly-identified areas in the island. It is not possible to stop by it on your personal you will almost certainly locate other guests as well as they can attain it by way of the south side of the island.
The waterfall is 60 metres higher! Adventurous or not, you ought to take the possibility to stroll behind the rapid-flowing water. But never neglect to have waterproof garments and the suitable footwear!
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
Plus: if you enjoy physical activities in nature, like hiking, walking or just cave exploring, this spot will turn into your favourite!
And for the reason that I am a single as well, I believe I deserved the Incredible BBQ that followed.# Sorry, I had to. Standard hot dogs in the middle of nowhere –amazing expertise just like its onions!
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.
We are someplace in the finish of my great trip to Iceland.
I guarantee I will get back with glacier photographs and Northern Lights!
