Distant Getaways

Time passes so quickly and this is already our last day in Southern Iceland. We still have an entire day ahead of us before heading to the US. Today we plan to go for a hike in the Reykjadalur Valley to reach the hot spring river of Hvergardi, then have a short visit of Reykjavik and finally end up in Gardur, at the most western part of the Reykjanes Peninsula.

So many surprises await you in Iceland, even if you believe to know it well. On this third day we decided to visit several of the major sites in the Golden Circle, including those of Geysir and Gulfoss but also another little known jewel, the waterfalls of Brúarfoss.

It's already time to wake-up and get ready for our second day in Iceland. Today, we have to leave our guesthouse in Hella we rented for two nights and head-up for our second place in Selfoss where we'll stay for another two-nights to explore the Golden Circle. The two villages are not very far apart but we'll be on the road to see as new places. If you missed our day 1 adventures in the Southern parts in the region of Vik, I invite you to read them here.

There are trips you're waiting with a lot of impatience. Iceland was one of those. I've spent five wonderful days with my family visiting the Golden Circle and southern parts, during a stop-over before heading to Boston, last August. This country surprised me from the first to the last minute, crossing incredible landscapes and ever changing a few miles apart. Here's my story.
