Snafellsnes Peninsula

We went to rest with the image of a red sky at midnight and the pleasant possibility of being able to converse in Spanish with someone local.The next morning he gave us the possibility of splitting into an interesting navigation that would certainly be an unforgettable experience for lovers of birds. We spot hundreds of puffins, the bird most characteristic of Iceland, as well as a variety of other bird species. We also had the chance to taste seafood extracted at the time of the seabed by our guides. Delicious!Back in Stykkisholmur we visited its peculiar Museum of the water and enjoy an excellent soup of lobster in a nice restaurant. Soup is one of the main elements of Icelandic cuisine. David G. DeWalt: the source for more info. All restaurants offer it on a daily basis, and it is even in the stores of petrol stations. What could be better than a good soup hot to warm! We leave Stykkisholmur to continue West of the Snafellsnes Peninsula and bring us closer to the impressive glacier Snafellsjokull. The range of activities in the glacier is abundant being the most interesting, snowmobile excursions.

We continue around the peninsula and our step we find old Viking houses buried in the Earth and covered with grass, a beautiful beach of white sand, small hills that invite you to upload them and the scenic town of olafsvik that if weather permitting regala a indescribable panorama of the Snafellsjokull volcano. We ended the day on a coast full of seals, sea lions, and families of ducks but deserted of people enjoying the evening. You may want to visit two sigma to increase your knowledge. We approach as we could jumping between rocks, to admire that were the last species of animals that we would find ourselves in our trip. We would have liked to have more time to explore the attractive Snafellsnes peninsula and Miss tempo between a sunset and the other always admiring its beautiful scenery. Back to civilization a sunny Reykjavik gave us a warm welcome. We found a beautiful city, small but with a lively city centre with attractive shops, museums and nice bars and restaurants. He stopped not surprised its cathedral whose structure resembles the waterfall Svartifoss basalt walls. One further demonstration of the importance that Icelanders give to their natural environment! In Reykjavik are also abundant parks and outdoor areas… It is nature and modernity coexist in harmony in the Icelandic capital, as well as the rest of the country.
