We were able to finally go horseback riding today on the beautiful Icelandic horses. I had so much fun trotting and galloping on my horse as well as seeing all the pretty sights. In the afternoon we were separated back into our groups and were able to go around the city to take pictures, have snacks, and buy gifts.

Today was our first day in Hofn. In the morning we went into a fishing museum and were able to learn more about the fishing industry as well as the surrounding area. In the afternoon we were separated into groups of four and were able to go off on our own and tour the city. We saw many beautiful sights such as the mountains and glacier and also met an amazing artist and learned about her life and family.

The past two days we have been camping in tents near the biggest glacier in Europe. We took a hike across the glacier yesterday and it was beautiful! We were able to see all the land around us and all the beautiful colors and designs of the glacier. Today we got on zodiac boats and headed right up to the wall of a glacier. It was located in a beautiful bay filled with icebergs that eventually would make it past the black sand beach and into the ocean which we also saw.
