Southern Iceland – Hauntingly Beautiful
Southern Iceland - Out of this world! We started with a visit to the Harpa Concert Hall and the Hallsgrimkirka Church - both impressive structures. The Golden circle Pingvellir National Park was our first stop. Then onto Geysur home to Stokkur most active geyser in Iceland and wonderful to watch as she blows! The Gullfoss Waterfall is magnificent with unbelievable scenery like nothing on earth. We were glad we weren't blown into the waterfall with the rain wind and snow! We did a snowmobile ride on the vast snow cap Langjokull. It was impressive and we only had two spills! The view from the cave at Reynisfjara Black sand beach is spectacular. We were amazed at our photo's with NO filter to show the simply stunning Vatnajokull glacier the largest glacier in Europe. We travelled north-west to the Snaefellsnes Peninsula which is well worth a visit and so is the Blue Lagoon, even though it is expensive it's still a must do. The Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon formed only 90 years ago has Deep blue ice block and photo's don't do it justice! Iceland was an epic Journey and an incredible experience. We would recommend a visit for sure!
Tips for other travellers
Go to the Blue lagoon early in the morning when it's not too crowded.
