It’s mid April, yet there is still bitter winter here in the North of Iceland, where team Iceland Unlimited is located at the moment. Four days ago we embarked on a journey around Iceland to scout out new accommodation options and find some lesser known attractions.
We started in Reykjavík and drove along the south coast. On our first day we suffered the unfortunate incident of getting a flat tire. However, in Iceland we have this proverb which says that if you start off on the wrong foot you’ll eventually have a good journey, or as we say it “fall er fararheill”.
So far this journey could not have turned out better, yet we still have three days to go. We have had the most fantastic hosts along the way and tasted some of the best food we have ever tasted in our life, and all on the house! It’s no wonder Iceland has been elected the friendliest country in the world for tourists. Icelanders simply love to play the good host and pride themselves in the service they have to offer.
We at Iceland Unlimited love to collaborate with such people, which are also why we are on this journey to find these wonderfully driven individuals so we can offer our customers the best there is available around the country.
With us is a travel blogger named Seattle. To avoid boring her to death with endless hotel and guesthouse visits, we have tried to spice things up a bit by searching less known sightseeing spots and attraction. Few of the things we have visited are the wreckage of a U.S. military plane that crashed into Sólheimasandur desert in 1973, Fjaðrárgljúfur canyon, tiled shaped lava formations dubbed as The Church Floor, a café in Mývatn where you can watch the cows being milked as you enjoy a cup of coffee and a home baked cake, as well as all the wonderful attractions that Eskifjörður has to offer. One of these attractions is a loft in an old sailor house by the harbour which has been left untouched for almost 100 years.
Today we are staying the majestic Mývatn area and tomorrow we are heading to Akureyri, the capital of the north. You want to know more about our adventures? Then make sure you follow our blog. See you on the road!
