Iceland - The Land Of Light And Dark

The nordic island nation famous for its rugged and contrasting landscapes. Iceland is home to over 125 of the world’s most active volcanoes, at the same time around 11% of its land is covered by glaciers. But don’t be fooled by the name, Iceland has plenty of lush green scenery in places like the Westfjords, home of the wonderous steps of the Dynjandi waterfall. Speaking of the name, did you know the original viking settlers purposefully misnamed both Iceland and Greenland? This was so their enemies would go to ice-covered Greenland instead of following them to their home in Iceland. A majority of the population lives in the capital city of Reykjavik, where you’ll find the national and saga museums which look into more of Iceland’s fascinating viking history. If you dare, try Iceland’s interesting selection of traditional food. Sink your teeth into delicacies like puffin, fermented shark, sheep’s head and pickled ram’s testicles at your own risk. Ironically, the most popular food in Iceland is actually hot dogs. Once your taste buds have had enough be sure to check out the The Great Geysir on the slopes of Laugarfjall hill, or kick back for a hot coffee in Reykjavik. Coffee has been an important part of Icelandic society since the 15th century. The glittering Northern Lights are also a must see in the winter months when the nights are longest.

Travel Iceland

Ride An Icelandic Horse

Originally brought to Iceland by Vikings, Icelandic horses are as tough as the unforgiving climate they live in. There are plenty of Icelandic tours you can take and it’s one of the best ways to experience the culture and scenery Iceland has to offer. Icelandic horses are also unique in that they have two extra “gaits.” Gaits are how horses move, for example: walk, trot, and canter.

Kick back in comfort and enjoy the light show from the outdoor hot pools with drinks and snacks in hand.
