Trip - August-September, 2012
This 8-day trip to Iceland via Goose Bay, Labrador, was amazing. We saw most of the country during a 1050 mile
drive that took us from Reykjavik, the Blue Lagoon, a visit to Harpa the new Opera House, Gulfoss Falls, Haukdalur,
Vik, Klaustur, Lagoon Jokkulsarlon (boat tour of Iceburgs), Vagnsstadir (snowmobiling on Iceland's largest
glacier), Hofn, Egilsstadir, Lake Myatan (Nature baths), Hverarond (boiling mudpots), Krafla, Akureyri (Iceland's
second largest city), and return to Reykjavik.
