On Saturday, the party took a day long bus tour
over the island—learning on the way that “Geysir” is the grand hot
spring from which our term “geyser” is derived. The guests had
ample opportunity to walk and explore the dramatic fields—calling them
dramatic is a gross understatement!
Iceland's climate is kept surprisingly temperate, thanks to the
currents, so walking and even swimming are easy! Volcanic crater
lakes and lava fields give way to glaciers. Natural
geothermal spas beg for a skinny dip!
