    This hostel is really out in the middle of nowhere, miles down a dirt road. Incredibly isolated, but worth the drive. Amazingly beautiful setting in the open open field near the confluence of two rivers flowing to the sea. Best thing here is riding the Icelandic horses. Small rooms, no sink in the room. No water pressure. Don't plan a shower here! We enjoyed the European women who were spending a week riding.

    At last, our hostel!

    I could have ridden them all day. These beautiful, gentle, friendly horses are unique to Iceland. People come from all over the world to ride them. I would come back just to ride them again!!

    This was the first hostel where we actually met some other women travelers. These women from Germany, Switzerland and France came to spend the week …

    This morning, we decided to go to a small place for a Viking breakfast. But first, we need to explore the last of Hofn before we could have breakfast and coffee! The breakfast was disappointing, but we walked around the area (site for some Viking movies); then we set off to explore the countryside between Hofn and our next hostel, in Husey.

    ... me a few days ago, another French couple, and later a couple of Belgian guys. The Belgians tell about how they were picked up the other day by a man named Magnus, who introduced himself as "I am Marcus, and I am a strange man". It turns out he is the person who runs the Elf University in Reykjavik. He even gave them a copy of the "study guide" for the course. I have a flick through, it seems like a collection of Icelandic folk tales and legends about the elves and ...

    Myvatn to near Egilstaddur

    ... Curiously, there was no name at the location. I puzzled it out from the description of a geocache located near it.

    The night's lodging is not in town (the nearest would be Egilsstaddur). It is more of a country hotel. Nice enough but it limits the dining options. We opted out of the grand Icelandic traditional buffet for 6700 ISK. Items like dried horse, sheep tongues, cow cheeks, horse filet, etc. just weren't appealing. We went to the ala carte dinner which was just ...

    ... it appears they are itching each other/s back’s and hind quarters so you we’ve all had that back itch that we just couldn’t reach well I think the horses are itching that spot for their friends. Back at the beginning of our vacation we stopped and petted the horses and both Cindy and I were “nuggled” by a horse of two. The first time they did it it scared us but then we realized it ...
