RE: Hornstrandir - the most desolate corner of Iceland

in #travel4 years ago

Wow such an amazing trip, you shared it so beautifully! I've always wanted to visit this part of Iceland, and now even more!

Wow, thank you for promoting my post! What other parts did you see? You seem to be a true free spirit! Maybe we'll meet somewhere on the road :D

I've just been very quickly to Island many years ago with my mother. I guess it must have been in.. 2007 or -8! I was in a hard moment in my life and decided to go with my mother to the Iceland Airwaves Festival in Reykjavik. We were just there for 6 days I think, but managed to go and see the typical tourist spots (Gullfoss and the geysirs.. blue lagoon). It was a very fast a touristy kind of way - since I've travelled in much more alternative ways, mildly said ;) But Iceland made a very big impression on me anyway and helped me through my personal struggle in a very profound way. I knew I had to go back one day and I see the more remote areas!

I'm glad to hear it had healful impact on you! But yes - it's definatley worth seeing more than Golden Circle and Blue Lagoon, but as you can see - it's hard to find a spot with no touristic touch :( Keep in mind that tourist industry grew few times since 2008.
