Dear Jórunn and team
We have had a wonderful time!!
Thank you so very much for putting together such a great itinerary. We stuck to the route faithfully and visited nearly all the sites you recommended. (Well, not all the restaurants…)
We loved Gulfoss falls, and the Seljalandsfoss falls too – where we got drenched. The children were so excited to walk around the back of the falls! It was completely wonderful to hike to the Seljavallalaug swimming pool and swim in the warm water there: that was a great highlight. The hotel at Vik was something we loved too: really comfortable, spacious, stylish. We would return tomorrow! And we liked the beach at Vik too – sun shining through the mist, very atmospheric. I even paddled in the sea! (No ‘sneaker waves’.)
Hotel Ranga was great. By complete coincidence we met our very good friends there (a family who we have skied with for the last 10 years/Rowena’s godparents). So we had some good evenings with them – and great dining!
And Reykjavik was a treat at the end. We ate at Laekjarbrekka (and the shark!) and made the (nicely short) journey to Grotta lighthouse to see the northern lights. They were pale-ish, but they were there!!! We saw them on our last night!
And the Blue Lagoon was a perfect finale. Thank you so much for making that booking for us!
We are sad to be home. We loved your country. Our appetite is whetted and I know we’ll want to visit again!
Very many thanks again for setting everything up for us.
Susan, Ed, Max, Annabel and Rowena
