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 …

Hofn to Husey along the fjord

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.

The Mighty Dettifoss

A travel blog entry by jerryroberta


On our road trip from Lake Myvatn to the small village of Egilsstadir (population 2,600) we took a side road to Dettifoss, Europe's largest waterfall.. It is the largest in the amount of water that goes over its ledges, some 17,000 cubic feet a second. The day was also our first day of considerable sunshine with temperatures reaching 18 degrees celsius. We also traveled over a snow covered pass where the temperature was as low as 8 celsius. The road for most of the day ...

... waterfall was about 50 km east, in the Jokulsargljufur Canyon, but we were told that the bad snowstorm caused the road to be closed. We tried to go and were successful as the snow on the roadway melted opening a small path. After a one km hike through a snowy rocky plain we reached to waterfall.

    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.
