After breakfast, which consists of a selection of cereals, yogurt, toast, cheese, cold cuts etc, our guide Elizabet lays out the plan for the day. She was concerned that the road which slices through the stark and desolate upland plateau of "the Interior" would be closed due to a road washout. But after consultation with the authorities, she …

A lazy day in Akureyri.

As yesterday had been a tad too hectic and due to the weather, we decided to spend the day in this small and picturesque town.
With less than 20000 people living here, this is a tiny town and it takes less than 10 minutes to walk from one side of it to the other.
Still, we had a nice calm day touring the town, the frozen botanical gardens, …

Hello, northern Iceland!

A travel blog entry by theshis on Apr 17, 2014

We left Egilsstadir heading north. The weather was rather grumpy and we hit a blizzard going to Dettifoss. We barely arrived to the park and started walking towards to waterfall. Unfortunately, the wind was too much for us. We then drove to the Viticrater, but were unable to reach it due to the weather. We visited the thermal mud pools of Hverarond …

For Iceland....this was one of our better and most modern stays. The rooms were clean and had huge picturesque windows. We were upgraded to a luxury suite which of course made our stay even better.
