Awakening Your Inner Viking!
“Thingvellir is the spiritual and symbolic heart of Iceland. You can feel that it’s a place of power when you're there.” This is where representatives of all the tribes of Iceland began meeting once a year, beginning around 930. The yearly assembly continued until 1798. In 1944, the nation gathered at Thingvellir to celebrate Iceland’s independence from Denmark. Imagine this… meditating on the site where Vikings gathered. Here, among other things, we will call for any past life information and connection. The Thingvellir site is also significant for its geology, for it sits on the fault line between the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates. Known as The Continental Divide. You can have one foot in the US and one foot in Europe. Can I hear “picture moment?!”
Gullfoss Waterfall-The water in Hvítá River travels from the glacier Langjökull before cascading 32 meters (105 feet) down Gullfoss’ two stages in a dramatic display of nature’s raw power. This incredible site is seen by most visitors, as it is on the Golden Circle sightseeing route.
Because of the waterfall’s two stages, Gullfoss should be considered two separate features. The first, shorter cascade is 11 meters tall (36 feet), whilst the second drop is 21 meters (69 feet). The canyon walls on both sides of the waterfall reach heights of up to 70 meters (230 feet), descending into the great Gullfossgjúfur Canyon. Geologists believe this canyon was formed by glacial outbursts at the beginning of the last age.
Strokkur Geiser, located in Haukadalur Valley- Strokkur is Iceland’s most visited active geyser. Active geysers like Strokkur are rare worldwide because many conditions must be met for them to form. They are thus only found in certain parts of highly geothermal areas. Strokkur is found in the Geysir Geothermal Area, titled after the Great Geysir, which lent its name to all others worldwide. It is the greatest active geyser on site; Geysir is in a period of inactivity. Strokkur erupts more regularly than Geysir ever did, blasting water to heights of around fifteen to twenty meters every five to ten minutes, although it is known to reach up to forty meters.
September 16th- South coast of Iceland. Reynisfjara Black Sand Beach, Vik, Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss Waterfall
Reynisfjara- The most beautiful black sand beach in the world is located in Iceland, and it is called 'Reynisfjara' in Icelandic. Be
careful of the tidal waves, but check out the cave on the beach carved out by the ocean waves.
A black sand beach cannot be found in many places on Earth. The pitch-black sand strikes a perfect contrast against the white foam of the waves and the blue water. The most beautiful black sand beach is located in Iceland - and this is not just our personal opinion. Many world-renowned magazines such as National Geographic or the Condé Nast Traveller have listed this extraordinary place among the most beautiful beaches on the planet!
Seljalandsfoss Waterfall-the waterfall does not look like much from the front, but once you walk behind it, it reveals its magical beauty. I loved it!
Skogafoss Waterfall-the 60m waterfall is quite impressive with this straight curtain-like drop. You can get close by walking to the platform (500 steps)
September 17th- A full day in the capital city of Reykjavik. You are on your own to explore, snoop, shop, eat, and absorb.
September 18th– Snaefellsness Penisula- Borgarnes town, Ytri-Tunga beach where we may see seals, the black church at Budir, Arnarstapi settlement and coastal walk 30 minutes, Djupalonssandur pebble beach, Kirkjufell mountain, and waterfall. Visit Helgafell and hike to the top of the hill. Return to Reykjavik. Visit the Sky Lagoon at 8.30 pm (the last slot of the day - we can stay for 2 hours)
Snaefellsness is known as “Iceland in miniature” because many of the geological and landscape features that make Iceland famous are gathered here on a smaller scale:
The Snæfellsnes glacier lies atop what is widely regarded as the most beautiful mountain in Iceland (as with many of the peaks in Iceland, a volcano simmers beneath the ice).
In the Icelandic histories known as the Sagas, Snæfellsnes was identified as an opening to the underworld. This tradition inspired Jules Verne to write his novel Journey to the Center of the Earth. Mary’s Well lies at the base of Snæfellsnes.
Helgafell, located on the north coast of the Snæfellsnes peninsula, is a low-lying mountain also mentioned in the Sagas. In ancient times it was a pilgrimage place, particularly for those nearing death, for it was believed to be an entry point into the afterlife. It was said that from its peak, one could sometimes see Valhalla, the paradise of warriors. Today people climb it in hopes of being granted three wishes, provided they follow these rules: As they ascend, they cannot look back. They must walk in silence. And they can never reveal to others what their wishes are. We will do this!
A night trip to the new Sky Lagoon. Soaking in the healing water, staring at the stars, and hopefully the aurora borealis.
What a perfect way to wrap up our week of adventures!!!
September 19th– Depart this wildly intense country.
We will walk on lava, we will touch glaciers, both of which are millions of years old, and we will experience the renowned mineral waters, soak in the sites, smells, tastes, and energies, stir up our Viking ancestry, laugh, lounge, learn, and have the time of our lives. We sure hope that you will join us!
We will, of course, at all times, keep our eyes out for John Snow...swoon… ooopppssss….just kidding, Dale!
There is a large percentage of Icelandic people who believe in Elves. This is a tradition passed down for years. There are even places where you can stop and give offerings of food to the Elves. This will be fun!
