Seal in Dalvík harbour

Oh yes, it was back then in November, when we discovered that a seal is enjoying himself at a Dalvík harbour.
Apparently, a seal comes from time to time even to this fishing village harbour hidden in Eyjafjordur.

It was for the first time, when I got to see a seal here and even-though with a month delay, I want to share a picture of him here.

Otherwise, we hope that you´ve been enjoying festive time without stress and wish you great travels full of true experience not only in 2012.

PS: We´re preparing for a welcome of a new member of our family and will be publishing with less frequency. However, we like hearing from you and also your comments so keep on posting and feel free to browse through our older articles - you might find some inspiration for your travels in Iceland.

all the best Lenka and Eggert and a little one still in the belly :)

Iceland covered in snow

December 9th, an Icelandic meteorologist Einar Sveinbjörnsson published a satelite picture of Iceland on his blog showing Iceland totally covered in snow.

If you´re one of those, hesitating 'should I go or should I stay?', this might help you decide. From our part of Iceland, we can proudly report that we have a lot of snow. Great conditions for skiing and AURORA shows up from time to time too. Temperatures have been below zero, but outdoor pools stay nicely hot, as long as there´s no wind - and there hasn´t been a snowstorm for quite a while.

Last but not least, cultural life is totally blooming, not only in Akureyri, but also in small villages, such as our little Dalvík.

Christmas markets, concerts, name it.

So, if you´re up for some proper relaxing and revitalization in the middle of nowhere with great food and unusual things to do - dipping yourself in outdoor hot pot, even-though it´s minus 10, then go and book your ticket and give us a shout.

We´ll gladly assist with the rest.

Iceland - THE destination

Here, in our beloved small fisihing village of Dalvík, proper winter has come. We´ve already had a proper snow storm and now are enjoying lots of snow and temperatures below zero.

There´s also considerably less daylight during the day, so we tend to sleep more and go to the pools more often :).

And, we just wanted to remind you that whatever the time of the year, you´re more than welcome to explore this island from inside out and we´re here to help you to get know many places that you´d otherwise not get introduced to.

If you´re asking yourself: What is the best time to travel to Iceland?', then we encourage you to think about what experience you´re undry for - what is it that you truly want to try out and live while exploring this island.

Our answer would be that whatever the time of the year, Iceland is such a unique destination that it always has a lot to offer - the most important thing is that you harmonize your expectations with what is likely to be found here during the particular part of the year.

Well, and we´ve also read that Iceland is the most desirable destination for world travelers in 2012, both according to Lonely Planet and National Geographic.

No matter, whether you follow such advice or not, we keep the fingers crossed and wish you that you´ll be able to come and enjoy (N)iceland whenever the right time comes for you.

We´re here to help and assist, so do not hesitate and contact us.
