My Dream to Explore Iceland
Transcript of My Dream to Explore Iceland
island with the size of England the population size
of England It is a great place to clear one's mind and explore a new world that is magically mesmerizing. Not many think of going to Iceland due to its cold weather. Trekking into Iceland Day 1 Arrival July 1 6:35 p.m. local time via Icelandair. A non-stop flight to Reykjavik.
($1150) Check into Reykjavik City Hostel Since most of my stay will be
either trekking in the
wilderness or walking through
Reykjavik, it is important to
pack lightly. A hostel that
is eco labeled and close to the
centre of the city fits the bill (no pun intended). The only luggage I will have is a 50 L daypack. I will stay the night in this hostel before my trek into Iceland. ($20/night) Quick Sightsee Viewing landmarks such as Hallgrímskirkja
and Solfar Sculpture. Day 2 Why trek in Iceland? Best way to experience the beauty of Iceland Get to know people from other nations Unique thrill of adventure “Those who wander are not necessarily lost”

Trekking From Landmannalaugar Hot Springs to Þórsmork glacier valley - 5 days in South-western Iceland
- 54 km of hiking supported by 4WD vehicle
- 6-10 hours of daily walking
- multinational group
- Accommodation in provided tents

a risk factor
- Summer is one of the better times to travel to
Iceland ($1160) A tour run by Fjallabak
"The Icelandic Trekking and Adventure Company" (1-2 hrs hiking) Most of this day is driving to Landmannalaugar - Pick up from hostel at 8:30 a.m. - While driving to Landmannalaugar, we will pass Mt. Hekla.
- Called “The gateway to hell” because it is still active and might erupt any time now - Stop at Ljótipollur crater and possibly see Iceland’s biggest glaciers. - Landmannalaugar exploration and relaxing in natural warm water beside the camp site. Day 3 (8-10 hrs hiking) 24 km trek to Lake Álftavatn The longest day of walking includes: A Stroll through Laugahraun lava field Going up beautiful hills near Brennisteinsalda Have lunch at Hrafntinnusker,
a region covered with obsidian Going through rough terrain at Jokultungur. Arrive at Lake Álftavatn Day 4 (6-7 hrs hiking) 16 km trek through rivers to Botnar Easy trek compared to Day 3... Pass through Hvanngíl gorge Cross Bratthálskvísl river on foot Cross Kaldaklofskvísl
via bridge Get a great view of 200 m deep Markarfjlótsgljúfur canyon Day 5 (6-7 hrs hiking) 15 km trek to Þórsmork, Iceland's pearl One of the riskiest rivers to cross on the trek: Syðri Emstruá River Walk though the Þórsmork valley before pitching tents. Named after the Norse god "Thor" Fortune favours the bold.
- Icelandic Proverb Day 6 (2 hrs hiking) 5 km trek to Mt. Valahnúkur and heading back to Reykjavik - Possibility to sleep in after long trek or get a beautiful view of the whole area from Mt. Valahnúkur - Arrive in Reykjavik before dinner
- Check in the same hostel again before departing the next morning I believe that this dream vacation will be filled with memories that will last forever. "Little by little, one travels far."
- J.R.R. Tolkien I cannot wait to experience the uniqueness of Iceland's beauty. It is amazing how at one moment you are looking at glaciers... ...and the next looking at the green mountains of Þórsmork. Iceland is truly a dreamy and magical land that is shaped beautifully 9
