Escape to Iceland

Jump to last reply

Looking for something completely different? Tired of the Tropics and the same old haunts?

Try "Reykjavik, Iceland". Airfare was reasonable (1999) around $200.00 roundtrip.
Iceland offers: rough, rugged terrain, amazing waterfalls and ravines, geysir's, lava beds, hiking, Icelandic horse rides, mountain ranges and plenty of fresh air!

On the Atlantic Ocean, you'll find a vast assortment of fresh fish and breezes, bring a scarf. There are tours to the small fishing villages, and the above mentioned items (Gullfoss is the name of the waterfalls and geysir's). I highly recommend the "full circle tour" after you've slept off your jet lag. The tour is via' bus, full day and best enjoyed if rested. I was there in early Dec. while driving the last leg of the tour we were in a mountain range and drove through a "white out" the snow was swirling about so badly we weren't sure if we'd get back. You could hear a pin drop, we applauded the bus driver once we got thorough it! He probably makes most of his tips for his daily success in getting through this part of the ride.

The "Blue Lagoon" is a geo-thermal pool, which is open to the public for a fee. Bring your swim suit and be prepared for a once in a lifetime experience. The 'floor' of the lagoon is crater like, the steam floats above the water making your friends and or partner disappear before your very eyes. There are hot spots where the water bubbles madly. I find these spots to be the best after a day hiking about. The Lagoon is beautiful in a surreal fashion, and better than any spa I've been in.

The entire experience was amazing! if you wanted to make a 'new age trip' this would be it. There are also the typical haunts, downtown, resteraunts, bars, shopping, museums etc. I chose to focus on nature.

tell me if you've been or are thinking of going?
