Iceland: The Elements of Iceland Adventure w/ Becoming an Outdoors Woman
Small on the map, but big in person, Iceland offers a massive in-your-face raw landscape to experience nature’s elements of earth, wind, fire & ice and to interact with a culture over 1,000 years old!
Iceland is a country of sharp contrasts. A place where fire and ice co-exist. Where dark winters are offset by the summer’s midnight sun. A country where insular existence has spurred a rich and vibrant culture. It is far from the ice-covered land of darkness many people envision when they think of the country. On the contrary, it is an amazing place of every conceivable shape and color!
Unlike the Vikings pioneers, we come to Iceland, not for religious freedom, but to enhance our own personal stories of adventure. With very little effort, many of Iceland’s treasures are accessible by nearly any type of traveler. Short hikes unveil cascading waterfalls. Easy paddles get you up-close to wildlife. A little effort gets you on top of an ancient glacier!
Iceland is vibrant and alive! The land is steaming, pouring, carving, raging, and pounding. The geothermal energy of the Strokkur Geyser sets off an eruption every 6-10 minutes.
