Waterfalls in Iceland
A wild land settled in the 8th century by the Vikings, Iceland still feels ancient. On the high sea cliffs in summer, sea birds nest as they have for thousands of years. The fjords are so deep that whales breech close to the coastal roads, and seals bask on rocks. Sheep and horses graze on soft grass close to stunning waterfalls. In rocky fields, locals point out boulders that used to be trolls. In tiny fishing villages nestled around harbors, people keep elf houses in their gardens, in case any of the huldufolk or “hidden people” needs a home.
We’ll visit inland to the northwest of Reykjavik before we head to the incredible south shore. Black beaches, lava fields, and waterfalls will keep you in awe with their beauty. In October, we’ll have cool days and nights, perfect for taking nature walks. Iceland is famous for it’s hot mineral springs, and at this time of the year, if we are lucky, we’ll be able to watch the magnificent Northern Lights.
While on the south coast, we’ll travel through lava fields, black sandy deserts, past glaciers, waterfalls and stunning mountains. We stay in comfortable hotels or guesthouses in different locations while we explore the dramatic Icelandic nature. You will also enjoy the local cuisine in all its forms….from the freshest fish in the world to the most tender lamb and everything in between. Perhaps you will get to try the renowned Icelandic shark!
There are not many places in the world where you can see volcanoes that erupt on a regular basis, mountains covered in frozen deserts of ice and snow, boiling hot water flowing freely out of the ground and stunning waterfalls, all in one day. Iceland is truly a land of the opposites. This is where the hot and the cold, the black and the white, the hard and the soft meet.
Join us and create memories in this ancient and unique country, the land of fire and ice.
