A fresh perspective of Iceland

by Antonis Yemenaris Personal Travel Guides
One of my personal travel stories which I would like to share is of Iceland where the sky above was crystal ultramarine and there was morning-glory blue. The midsummer noon was so impeccable that no Floridian or African could have looked up to this.

I witnessed to Iceland’s most famous cliff views through Bolafjall. Two thousand feet below, the sea webbed the world into green grass, white snow and black rock. There were Gulls that cawed and wove. Then, there was Hornstrandir which is a wilderness of puffins, arctic foxes and glaciers.

The nights were perilous where we hiked through empty and green Alpine valleys during the day which was alongside the Rocky Mountains belching steam.  The country had its heat but it came from below and it was easy for me to picture the dwarf foundries. In the evening, I joined the after-work crowd which was in the municipal hot pools where I would let the sulphuric bubbling water sooth my muscles. This was everything which every travel guide in Europe would yearn for. 

If you are yearning for the question as to what the weather was like, let me tell you that the temperatures of Iceland are mild all year long. It is more about fewer crowds, lower price and a blanket of tranquillity and silence.

For personal travel guides, there are many winter guides in Reykavik. You can also take up the day tours to the nearby Lake Myvatn which is from Akureyri. Most of the tourist attractions are crowd-free or it is much reduced. If you want something which is of the beaten path and is special, there are personal travel guides which can help you.

You can also opt for fun adventure, i.e. snowmobiling high, which is in Icelandic highlands. You can join a 3-day expedition in snowmobiling in the highlands which is for a breathtaking backdrop of the northern lights.

If you want to perceive Iceland in style, you can opt for Icelander’s favourite pastime, which is to enjoy a languid evening in the hot tub where there are no exceptions when it comes to the winter season. There is nothing better than being in a hot tub in the countryside where there are just clear side and no sound, where this makes up to the best personal travel stories.

You can rent a private luxury lodge which is in the countryside and then you can experience the amazing northern light show from your hot tub. Iceland is no exception when winter is the time for film festivals because they have the Stockfish Film Festival under its abode. This can be considered a great opportunity to catch the art-house films with filmmakers who are from all over the world. There is also “Bun Day” where the Icelanders can gather all together so that they can taste the delicious cream puffs which are in the bakery all over the towns. To know more, please visit my blog@
