Some may think of Iceland as a land of not such a lively environment. Although there’s not many forests and there’s only a few permanently living mammals – Iceland is bursting in others forms of life. It’s paradise for bird lovers and heaven for fans of marine life. It’s definitely different from what you’re used to and that’s what makes it special!
Anyone who loves nature and walking in the mountains appreciates the opportunity to reach the highest peaks. What is “most” has the power of attraction like a magnet. It arouses interest and draws attention. Especially when we are talking about the highest mountains. Whether it’s a country, a continent, or even the world.
Travelling in a campervan or sleeping in a tent is one of the most popular ways to travel in Iceland. Especially if we want to be free, unlimited with bookings and explore the island as much as possible. Sleeping in campsites is also cost-effective. So it’s definitely an option worth considering for those who don’t need luxuries… okay, sometimes just comfort to travel.
Iceland is known for its harsh climate and most tourists are aware of that. That may give an impression that the island lacks in animals and wildlife, meanwhile it’s actually not so true. The species who have been here for centuries perfectly adapted to the conditions, so let’s find out a little bit of their story.
As Icelanders often like to say: ,,Iceland is the best country in almost everything per capita.” You could easily say that Iceland has the most waterfalls…per capita. Even this is of course just a joke, you can find waterfalls almost literally everywhere in Iceland. Some of them are hidden or hard to access, in some cases you can park your car straight under the waterfall.
Packing up for a several-day trip, especially if it will be a mountain trip or you intend to mostly hike, is quite a logistically demanding task. First, because there is no such thing as “too much food” on a hike. Food is always useful, if only because – if we do not eat ourselves – we can rescue our companions with a sandwich or a piece of chocolate.
One of the main characteristics of Iceland is its unpredictable nature. Which is why so many of us adventurers are so passionate about this land. On March 19th 2021, after weeks of powerful earthquake swarms shaking Southeast Iceland, nature gifted us with a very special event that would soon become a very popular attraction, as a volcanic eruption finally occurred on the Reykjanes peninsula, in the Geldingadalir valley next to the Fagradalsfjall mountain.
How is it possible that a volcanic eruption has become the country’s greatest attraction? The new Icelandic volcano in the Geldingadalur Valley near Fagradalsfjall on the Reykjanes Peninsula, just 60 kilometers from Reykjavik, draws crowds. From the first day after the outbreak of March 19, hundreds of people went on the hiking trail from Grindavik, […]
Since the first big earthquakes started in February 2021 I was hoping for something new, big and changing to happen. And three weeks after it really did. On the night of 19th of March, an eruption started. I was in downtown Reykjavík in the bar with my friends at the time. Well, one more reason to celebrate. When I woke up the next day I was excited and I knew I wasn’t the only one. Many people went to see the eruption that day. I wanted too.
