Discover Wild Iceland
- Just got back from my mountain hike. (2017-04-15)
My heart is filled with happiness of all the beauty I witnessed just a few km from my back yard
This time I went to an old geothermal valley called Sogaselsdalur, which is almost cooled down but you still can see all the clay in the hill sides with all its beautiful colors. It’s not recommended to walk in the valley itself as the clay gets stuck under your sole and believe me, it’s true. This is one of the beautiful hidden Gems we have here in Reykjanes Peninsula. For me it looks like miniature Landmannalaugar

- The waterfall Öxaráfoss (The waterfall in the Ax River) in the ravine Almannagjá at Þingvellir

Interestingly the waterfall Öxarárfoss is actually a human-made waterfall. As strange as this may sound geologists and historians have discovered that the river Öxará was moved hundreds of years ago, to channel the water into the ravine Almannagjá in the ninth century. The purpose was to provide water for the members and visitors of the Icelandic parliament Althingi in the 9th century. This was documented in the saga Sturlunga written in the 12th and the 13th century.   The name, according to folklore, came from an Ax that killed a notorious and a very unstable female troll famous for killing and terrorizing visitors, inhabitants and travelers in the Hengill area not far from Þingvellir.  Long after the blade was put into her back, between her shoulder blades, it surfaced near the place where Öxarárfoss is now.  According to another folklore, the river changes to wine on new year's eve. If true you should be able to sit by Öxarárfoss and drink good wine from the waterfall until midnight when the river changes back to wine. Not something we recommend as king winter has all the power at Öxarárfoss and Þingvellir at that time. He might be drinking from the waterfall and probably quite drunk.

- The old farmhouse Laufás in Eyjafjörður

Laufás is mentioned in historical records soon after the settlement of Iceland (874-930) and since the earliest period of Christianity a church has been located there. The existing church was built in 1865 and among its special items is a pulpit from 1698. The farmhouse was rebuilt in an ambitious style in 1853-1882 and is an example of the gabled farmhouse, although significantly larger than the ordinary Icelandic farmhouse. The oldest section of the present day house is believed to contain timbers from the 16th and 17th century. The Laufás farmhouse at present equipped with household items and utensils resembles those in use at the beginning of the 20th century.

- Stórihver, Engjahver or Austurengjahver in Reykjanes Peninsula. Iceland

The thermal area of Austurengjar extends from east of Lake Grænavatn to Lake Kleifarvatn in the north. Hot springs, mud pots, and fumaroles are scattered sparsely over the area. The largest and most powerful hot spring, called Austurengjahver, Engjahver, or Stórihver, is located east of Lake Grænavatn
It grew very much larger after an earthquake in 1924.

- Stórihver, Engjahver or Austurengjahver in Reykjanes Peninsula. Iceland

Kerlingarfjöll is a 1,477 m (4,846 ft)) tall mountain range in Iceland situated in the Highlands of Iceland near the Kjölur highland road. They are part of a large tuya volcano system of 100 km2 (39 sq mi). The volcanic origin of these mountains is evidenced by the numerous hot springs and rivulets in the area, as well as red volcanic rhyolite stone the mountains are composed of. Minerals that have emerged from the hot springs also color the ground yellow, red and green.
