And what better way to explore a glacier than with Into the Glacier, a company specializing in tours inside the longest ice tunnel in the world at 1220 meters. So off I went mid-June on a Happy […]

May 23, 2017 Journey to Vatnshellir Cave on Snaefellsnes

“Please turn off your personal flashlight and then close your eyes”, our tour guide, Soffía, said before turning off her super-powered lamp. “Now, open and listen.” Total darkness surrounded me, blinded without an ounce of light. Drip, drip, drip.

For this reason, modern caretakers of these horses are very protective of them. If you’d like the chance to ride […]
