Pack Your Bags: The South Shore, Iceland

Is it cold yet where you live?

It's pretty darn wintery feeling here in England.

Almost about the same temperatures

that we were experiencing two months ago in Iceland.

Not that it is too surprising to find yourself

bundled up in a land named, well, after frozen water.

Don't worry though.

Despite the low temps,

you are typically so excited by the endless rainbows and waterfalls

you can find yourself jumping and skipping

your way into a nice sweat.

Here are some of the gorgeous sites we saw

after leaving Reykjavic

and heading out into the unknown

under the care of our awesome outfitters,

Nature Explorer Iceland.

Getting my baby bump on at Skaftafell National Park.

The glorious (and famous) waterfalls,  Skogafoss.

Heading to Iceland's fourth largest glacier, Myrdalsjokull.

As close to the glacier that we could safely get. You can fall hundreds of feet in the cracks. Beware!

See what I mean?

This place could have anyone

 finding themselves in a hot fuss

over how gorgeous it is.

Just pack some warm boots, a bit of Gore-Tex

and your acclimating emotions will take care of the rest.

If you're planning a trip to Iceland,

here are some of the things we did (and loved) on Iceland's South Shore:

We stayed at

Hotel Laki


took a boat ride through a glacier lagoon called


went horseback riding on funny little Icelandic ponies at



visited the stunning waterfalls of

Skogafoss Seljalandsfoss

and hiked through

Skaftafell National Park.
