On one of our days in Iceland, we split up and took separate adventures.  The girls and my wife went horseback riding and the boys and I decided to do a hike to a volcano.  We used Reykjavik Hiking.  Elva was our guide and is what you would expect from an Icelandic guide – extremely nice, knowledgeable about the area down to each plant we came across, and really made the tour fun.  The best part was we were the only ones on the hike.  It was well worth the time and money.

Elva drove us from the city to the beginning of the hike.

When you get outside of the city, you start to see the real Iceland.  It’s gorgeous and barren at the same time.

Where we parked, there are nesting birds.  They are protected by the rock formations.

And then we started to walk.  And were we treated to some beautiful sights.

This is the beauty of Iceland.
