Enjoy 20 pics from my camera:
My no1 experience – horseback riding. The Icelandic horses are so beautiful and kind creatures. There are various horseback riding tours you can choose from, we did THIS one.
A visit to The Blue Lagoon is a must. It’s the best way to relax after a weekend filled with activities with your best friend. Soak in the milky blue waters, order a drink from the bar or even treat yourself to a massage.
All of the above. And sunrise was at 11.20!
Museum of Design. This is the only museum in Iceland that specializes in the field of Icelandic design and applied art, with a collection of 1500 objects such as furniture, graphic design, textile, clothing, ceramics, glass and jewellery.
The unique Hallgrimskirkja is situated in the middle of Reykjavík. It is the tallest and most recognizable building in the country. The architecture was inspired by the Black Falls – another Icelandic natural wonder.
Go for a hand knitted wool sweaters, cardigans and pullovers. The sweaters are sometimes called Icelandic sweater or Lopapeysa. The knitwear design and patterns are both traditional and modern.
Enjoy the incredible nature. Drive it yourself: The Golden Circle.
BEST lobster soup in Iceland? Fjorubordid is the place.
Last stop. The geology of Silfra and the Thingvellir valley are closely connected to the Mid-Atlantic Ridge and the continental drift that occurs along its length. Every year the tectonic plates drift apart by roughly 2cm, putting the land in between under great tension. Every 10 years or so, this tension is released through major earthquakes.
On this girl trip we had the chance to experience Iceland thanks to Icelandair Stopover Buddy and our local guide Addy. You can apply for a Stopover Buddy if you head off to Iceland, for free. You get a personal host for an entire day! Your local guide shows you around on lots of amazing places, to get the chance to see the country from that person’s perspective, based on your interests. Check out their website here. THANK YOU Addy, you made our weekend memorable and special.
