Well we have had a few busy last couple days in Iceland. Yesterday we took in the most popular tour in Iceland – The Golden Circle which consists of 3 sights. Geyser Geo Thermal area where hot springs are in abundance, geysers explode and pools of mud bubble. Our second stop was Gull Foss which is the Queen of Icelandic Waterfalls. Our last stop was the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Pingvellir National Park where Iceland’s most historical events have taken place. We definitely got our exercise in with all the hiking we did and the rain didn’t start until we were on our way back to the hotel.
Sunday morning we boarded the Puffin Express Boat for our last tour. They took us out past the bay to view the Atlantic Puffins on the islands just outside of Rekjavik. We saw many Puffins resting on the rocks, swimming in the water and flying around us. After our tour ended we wandered around some more and tried the traditional lobster soup.
We are now just winding down and preparing for our trip home.
