Around Iceland – Hiking Stórurð


This hike was amazing! Not only because we had good weather for once, no – the goal of the day was Stórurð “the giant boulders”! No need to explain the excitement of the husband. Giant boulders! The boulders lie below a small glacier next to Dyrfjöll mountains and with a lot nice clear blue ponds. The hike itself is wonderful, but relaxing next to those boulders is just awesome. We even (ok, mostly I did, super badass) took a dip into one of those pond – extremely cold. Maybe one of the coldest dip I took! And the husband a lot of fun climbing up the boulders! If you are in East Iceland – go and hike Stórurð! Continue reading “Around Iceland – Hiking Stórurð”

Around Iceland – Hiking with Osprey


For hiking in Iceland we were super excited to test the Osprey carrier! My Grandpa carried me in one of those up the mountains when I was a child – so we just had to do same with our little one. And she liked it very much! What can I say? The Osprey carrier is super comfy, has extra space for lunch or rain clothing and even a little mirror, which you can use to see what your child is doing. Or for making fun! Since Iceland I used the carrier for hikes, but also little walks, where I was alone – means no extra person with an extra backpack! Totally works, so much space and I think a big bonus is, that you can adjust the length of the backpack with one move for small people to big ones. So this one we will use quite often! 😉

Around Iceland – Puffins in borgarfjördur eystri


We ended our journey around Iceland in Borgarfjödur Eystri – a hikers paradise. But the little town itself is nice to visit as well. Specially when you haven’t seen the puffins before, this is the place where you won’t miss them! Just drive to the little harbor outside the village and walk up a few stairs and tadaaaaa – puffins! We camped a little bit outside the village… Continue reading “Around Iceland – Puffins in borgarfjördur eystri”

Around Iceland – Westfjords


Another highlight in Iceland are the Westfjords. I’ve also been there before, if you wanna watch a little video about my 4-days trip, click  <<here>>! The Westfjords are the part of Iceland, where not that many tourists are – yet. A lot of the people traveling around Iceland are leaving the Westfjords behind, because you need some time to drive them. 😉 We had time and it was one of the best parts! So many hot springs – all to our own and a really cool waterfall, I haven’t been before. It’s called the “nameless waterfall”, super small hike but worth it! And yeah – the hot tubs in the westfjords are the best! I think we went to 5, but in the photos are only two. 😉 Continue reading “Around Iceland – Westfjords”

Around Iceland – Snaefellsnes Peninsula


I’ve been to the Snaefellsnes Peninsula before – but didn’t remember how amazing it is. So if now someone asks me what to do in Iceland, when you have not that much time, I always say – go to the Snaefellsnes Peninsula! There is so much! A glacier, hot springs, cliffs, caves… You can spent one day or a week! Either way, it won’t get boring!  Continue reading “Around Iceland – Snaefellsnes Peninsula”
