The fire, frost and water symbolized by the red, white and blue of Iceland’s flag are manifested in this land. Reykjavik, or Smoky Bay, was so named in 874 A.D. by Ingolf Arnarson when he sighted the numerous hot springs on the Seltjarnarnes Peninsula. Today this remarkably pollution-free city is wrapped around a sweeping bay and has managed to retain its charming Old-World atmosphere. A pastiche of red-blue-and green-roofed houses together with the tall gray tower of Hallgrim’s Church dominate the skyline. In Old Town, many of the wooden buildings have been lovingly restored and stand side by side with modern timber and concrete structures. There are fine museums and art galleries; historic pubs present activity in late afternoon. The beautiful countryside outside of Reykjavik includes such natural wonders as volcanoes, geysers, glaciers, mountains and spectacular waterfalls.

6/14/2020

The town of Isafjord is a bona fide hive of industry. This busy fishing port runs to sizable shipyards as well as shrimp and fish factories— all ready to handle the catch of the day from the icy waters of the Denmark Strait. Recreational activities around here include hiking, kayaking, and of course, fishing.

Vigur Island

Vigur Island is small but significant, as the second largest island within the ice-fjord it occupies, Isafjordur. In a leisurely hike, see Vigur's highlights: Iceland's only and oldest light-house, birdwatching (puffins and purple sandpipers among many others), and meeting the sole family that lives on the island.

Heimaey

6/15/2020

Heimaey, off the coast of Iceland, is one of 15 volcanic Westman Islands - home to "Keiko" the star of the "Free Willy" movies. The island is buzzing with life and there are some truly spectacular sights. The perfectly formed natural harbor area has tall cliffs tenanted by multitudes of puffin, fulmar and guillemot. Sprangan is a cliff where young islanders are taught the rope swinging sport. Herjólfsdalur Valley has ruins of old farmhouses dating back to 650 AD. The western part of the island provides an opportunity to view outer islands. 'Stórhöfdi' has magnificent views over the island and majestic glaciers of mainland Iceland and is home to the island's largest puffin colony. Two volcanoes in Heimaey are 5,000-year-old "Helgafell" (Holy Mountain) and the Eldfell (Mt. Fire), whose history is more recent and which offers a viewpoint. A road through the lava field passes the center of the volcano's crater, the ruins of a house buried in lava, and the main streets. Skansinn wooden church was donated to the people of Islands by Norway to commemorate the millennium of Christianity in Iceland.

The unique history and geology possessed by Thingvellir makes this UNESCO World Heritage Site one of the most popular tourist destinations in Iceland. Iceland’s Parliament was established in this city in 930 and remained there until the late 18th century. In 1930, Thingvellir National Park (the first of its kind in Iceland) was established to preserve the remains of the original parliament site as well as the natural wonders in the surrounding area. The city is home to Thingvallavatn, the largest natural lake in Iceland, as well as the Silfra fissure and the magnificent Gullfoss waterfall. Diving or snorkeling through the crystal clear waters in the rifts between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates is also a very popular activity for visitors to Thingvellir.
