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 on tours that allowed them to interact with nature.
Elizabeth, an energetic person from Washington D.C. with a great sense of style, shares her glacier walk experience with us.
What motivated you to visit Iceland?
It's always been on my bucket list, and I was feeling overwhelmed by the heat wave on the east coast in August. When a dear friend said she was headed to Iceland in two weeks, I said, “Sign me up!”
I am normally a person that plans months in advance for a trip but I had been working so much and was in desperate need of a vacation. Also, the thought of going somewhere cool when it is 100 degrees Fahrenheit and humid outside just sounded perfect.
Did you travel solo or with a group? Which tour did you choose?
I traveled with one of my friends and we did a self-driving tour for 8 Days. We did the south and west coast, as well as the Golden Circle. We opted for taking the Sólheimajökull Glacier Walk that your company provides.
What is one thing you will always remember about your tour?
Seeing a moulin, a hole worn in the ice by water, was great. Our guide Magnús told us a funny story about a man and his sheep that fell down a moulin and showed up 40 days later.
