While driving on our longest driving day from the North coast of Iceland to the South, we made a lot of stop offs. It wasn’t hard, as we’d notice something pretty to see and shout at Adam to pull over. This waterfall was one such stop.
For this photography Friday, I present to you the Icelandic horses! Some are friendly, almost all have epic hair do’s. I probably got more excited than we should as we drove across Iceland and I squealed and pointed out every group of horses we saw. Which was a lot. We stopped a couple times to say hi and give them a nuzzle because you can’t just ignore them when they are near the road.
As I mentioned in my last post, Mývatn is full of geothermal activity, making it an ideal place to have a complex with nature pools to soak in. Jarðböðin is about five minutes outside the centre of Mývatn and has two big pools to soak in. This was our first experience of going to the baths in Iceland, and I was glad it was to a very quiet one!
Iceland is well known for it’s geothermal activity, be it active volcanoes or their natural hot baths dotted around the country. Right outside Mývatn is Hverir, a small area with bubbling mud pools and water pools. It’s free to go and see so if you are passing by I’d really recommend it as the landscape is actually quite beautiful. Prepare yourself for the sulpher smell though, it’s very strong and when it’s windy you just can’t escape.
So there are a zillion (estimating) waterfalls in Iceland, but there are several pretty well known ones. As in they are actually on maps and a destination for people to go to. Our first one we happened across was Goðafoss, and it was pretty awesome to say the least.CONTINUE READING
