Welcome to our “Adventurer of the Week” series! Each week we will feature individuals that were inspired to make every moment an experience in Iceland by going out on epic tours with us that allowed them to interact with nature.
This week's instalment of our "Adventurer of the Week" series tells the story of two couples, Elizabeth and Wayne Hardy, and Sally and Gene Hatcher, who cam to Iceland on a dare; the dare in question being to go somewhere cold and adventurous! Clearly, they accepted the challenge, and now they are already back home!
What motivated you to visit Iceland?
We came to Iceland ( 2 couples in our 40s) on almost a dare. We had been on a cruise, we had been fishing in Florida and we had been to a resort in Mexico. Did we dare to really get outside of our comfort zone and go somewhere truly adventurous and possibly freezing cold? Somewhere with a truly unknown language and culture that was halfway around the world? The answer was yes, and the more we looked into in the more beautiful pictures we would see and the more we would realize it's not much colder than home and it's no further away than California! And most everyone speaks English and takes US money ;) So at that point , it was on! We continuously were texting each other to say "Are we really doing this? It seems so unreal!"
