Thank you for sharing this experience with us. This video recaps our journey, along with some pictures and clips that we have not published yet. We hope you enjoy it.
Life on Iceland’s Ring Road
Our Puffin Expedition
We chartered a cruise to look for the elusive Puffin. Although we did not get to see a Puffin up close -they are surprisingly smaller than expected- we did get to sample some fresh Icelandic seafood.
Geothermal Park Hveragerði
We stopped at Hveragerði to visit the geothermal park. The park has amazing scenery, exhibits, and allows visitors to take a dip in the warm water from the springs. There are also restaurants that use the geothermal heat to prepare food. Please check out the links on the side for the Hveragerði area and Eat in Iceland websites.
Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon
The Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon has spectacular blue icebergs that drift through a channel and into the ocean. The ice can be up to a thousand years old and take up to five years to traverse the lagoon. Please check out the link on the side for more information on Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon.
The Pedaling Pioneer visits a library in Selfoss
The library in Selfoss was neat. The staff were very nice and helpful, and there were a couple girls in the library that are around the same age as our summer school Icelandic Adventure students.
Our visit to the Lava Center
We stopped by the Lava, Volcano & Earthquake Center to learn more about Iceland. Please check out the link to the Lava Center’s website for more information.
