I love Iceland. It is one of my favorite places. That is saying a lot when I prefer warmth to anything cold. Even in the summer, I have been known to use the set heaters in my car. I love heat that much. Just call me The Heat Miser. However, Iceland is a magical land and it has enchanted me. Steaming ground, glaciers, volcanoes, frigid waters and hot springs. Witches, warriors and trolls, folk lore abounds in the land of fire and ice.
Go in the summer months and be treated to sunlight all day. The photo below was taken at around 11PM.
It is Midlina, the point where the North American and European tectonic plates meet. Here, where the world is being torn apart, you can “walk in the footsteps of the gods” between two continents. Cross the “Leif the Lucky” bridge or just slide down into the rift where cool black sands await.
No trip would be complete without seeing the famous Icelandic horses. They are beautiful, easy going creatures. Icelandic horses are not vaccinated, so you are not allowed to wear used equestrian equipment on any tour. These horses have a fifth gait,the tolt. It is a lovely smooth ride. They also just make the cut to be considered a horse rather than a pony. I think they have big attitudes because of that. Just look at these beauties we saw running in the interior of the island.
