Landmanalaugar, place where hot river is! in that river water is about 38 to 45 C degrees! There are beautiful mountains too. To get there you need to be with 4x4 car, because there are hard driven roads, and you need to drive over two rivers! Thought those rivers were small, after our last trip in summer 2003, when rivers were very deep - almost to car's windows!!!!!

Wow! I am so envious. What a beautiful area. Those waterfalls are gorgeous! I would have wanted to play in them. And, I love the Icelandic ponies. They are so cute. That buckskin looking one so cute. Looks like you had a great time. Getting to swim in that hot water place would have been neat, too. Makes me want to visit Iceland. That church is so pretty.

Oh my goodness, what beautiful pictures! All of us are so lucky that you have joined Pet Talk and share your beautiful country with us.

All of the pictures are wonderful, but I loved seeing the rock formations and the horses. Ha! I would have been right in there with you petting the horses. They are so beautiful and I love their full manes and sweet faces.

I think all of agree that we would love to see as many pictures as you can show us.

Thank you!
