When outdoors, taking a deep breath of clean, fresh air is something that Icelanders take for granted. But the abundance of fresh and healthy air comes at a price. Iceland is located at the border between Arctic and temperate seas and between the cold air masses of the Arctic and the warm air masses of lower latitudes. This makes Iceland’s climate extremely variable. In fact, it is not unusual to experience all four seasons in a single day. The local have a saying, “If you do not like the weather wait five minutes and it will change.” Thanks to the gulf stream, winter temperatures are milder than in New York. Iceland is a volcanic land and has many glaciers and other countless natural wonders. I embarked on many adventurous tasks during my visit and I look forward to returning to do more. I loved all of my climbs at different waterfalls and especially my glacier hike. It is the best place for anyone who loves nature and outdoor activities. Some of the highlights of my trip included a northern lights evening tour, a visit to the blue lagoon, the golden circle tour, south shore adventure tour, and just wandering aimlessly around Reykjavik looking at rainbows. I could not believe my eyes during some of my daily events. The natural beauty is in abundance. I kept staring at my surroundings and thinking is this real?
