Iceland 2011 - Page Text Content

FC: Iceland October 15 to October 21, 2011 | Iceland 2011

1: We flew out of Seattle October 15, 2011, for our 7 hour flight to Iceland.

2: We arrived at 5:20 Sunday morning. After eating a wonderful breakfast at our hotel, we took off to explore downtown Reykjavik.

4: Of course, we had to find a place to get a good coffee and a pastry.

5: There was a great pond with swans and ducks.

7: Te & Kaffi best coffee in Iceland! | The best hot dog in the world is located in this tiny shop in Reykjavik. | Sweet onions, deep fried onions, 3 sauces, and a great quality hot dog- We ate here breakfast, lunch, and dinner one day.

8: We were able to ride the elevator up to the bell tower for a great view.

11: This was the beginning of our Golden Circle tour. The views were AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL!

12: The wind direction changed!

13: Strokkur Geyser (gayzure) The geysers were spectacular!

15: Gullfoss Water Falls

16: It was terribly cold and windy, and the trail was treacherous.

17: Notice the small rope and posts used for "safety".

18: Blue Lagoon | The air was freezing, but the water was warm. It was like a bathtub carved out of a salt block. We sat right by the hot water inlet to keep warm.

19: Our visit to the Blue Lagoon ended our day tour of the Golden Circle.

20: It was a little windy! | The closest we came to wildlife was in the gift shop.

21: Unless you count sheep, goats.... | or horses.

22: Can you tell we thought this church was beautiful?

23: We toured the Reykjanes Peninsula and crossed the bridge connecting the two continents.

24: We took a tour bus to the south coast and to the glacier. There are many of these large rocks that are hollow. The farmers use them to shelter their animals. | We learned that "foss" means waterfall in Icelandic.

25: Skogar museum | Seljalandsfoss Waterfall | Skogaafoss Waterfall

26: Hiking on the glacier was the highlight of our trip.

27: This couple got engaged at the top of the glacier. | August, our guide.
