Iceland is: Weather !

Iceland sits in the middle of the northern Atlantic, warmed somewhat by the gulf stream, but subject to extreme weather. Especially wind.

We experienced that on day one in Reykjavik, when the wind was blowing so hard that the rain was sidewards and the umbrella… well – it snapped … this is where we found out why most Icelandic people do not carry umbrellas. So – we made due with our raingear (a great pre-trip investment).

Near Þingvellir – Iceland’s oldest national park, protects a scenic 84 sq km lake, the geologically significant Almannagjá rift, and is the site of the original Alþing (National Assembly).
