VISITING PHENOMENAL ICELAND WORKS GREAT WITH CHILDREN.
Halló, -and that’s Icelandic for hi. I’ve just spent a weeks holiday in beautiful, wild, clean, and melancholic Iceland. Initially this was a birthday present for my mum, but it was just as much a present for me and Viola I found out.
We stayed in the south region close to ‘the golden circle’. Here we had rented a nice cabin (with an outdoor hot tub yay) through Air bnb and we picked up a car at the airport. From our cabin we did day excursions like a day of horseback riding on the sweetest Icelandic horses (the only horses you’ll find on Iceland by law), trips to Geysers, whale boat excursions, swimming in natural hot spring and so on.
Iceland was much more than I had expected and we all fell for the country. There’s no doubt that we will return, one week is definitely not enough, there is still so much to explore!
Next time I want to travel inside the country, see a glacier up close, spend some days in Reykjavik and Viola want to go on a 3day horse riding trip in the mountains.
View from our cabin
A geyser with the most crazy milky blue color, with a stinky egg like smell to it though.
Steam coming up from the ground all random places is a common sight.
This was such a great day horseback riding with the view of Volcano Katla. We rented through Nups hoses because they took children on trips and Viola loved it (hi that’s my mum in the back), we did tolt and pass which is a special walk of only Icelandic horses I think ,-fast as gallop too..
Viola in her new Icelandic hand knitted sweater made with Icelandic lambs woll of course (She’s worn it every day since).
Having a break on the edge of a volcanic crater.
Probably the most crazy natural phenomenon I’ve seen. A geyser approx 30m high and 100c warm.
This was bliss! The oldest natural hot spring pool in Iceland, the air was around 11c but the pool was super warm (sometimes almost too warm.)
We went on a whale watch trip, but only saw the back of a Minky Wale and some dolphins. We also found out that only 2percent of the population eat whales meat, the rest is the tourists…
Hopefully I’ll come closer to the Glaciers next time I’m here.
