You are going to Iceland in January? Are you crazy? Not at all!!!
Iceland is isolated from the rest of the world and is leading the world in becoming a 100% sustainable energy society. There primary energy source is hydro power and geothermal springs and is a society making every effort to preserve its natural beauty. Its culture is loaded with fables and folklore with the characters being trolls and elves. The land is covered with lava fields, glaciers and waterfalls. Some of the vistas seem unreal as if a backdrop for a screen play. The weather and winds were always daunting and we had too much cloud cover to be gifted with a sighting of the aura borealis. My five day adventure only wet my appetite and I count the days until I can return.
