Activities/Attractions: Despite its name, the Republic of Iceland is far from icy for much of the year and although the summer months could hardly be described as hot, they are mild, pleasant and often sunny, being warmed by the adjacent North Atlantic Current. Iceland is filled with natural interest and attractions, including endless steaming springs and geysers, enormous glaciers and even a number of active volcanoes.
The beautiful Whale Bay branches into the mountainous landscapes between the points Akranes and Kjalarnes. It is about 30 km (20 miles) long, 4-5 km wide, and quite deep (84m). The innermost part is framed with steep mountains, dropping almost straight into the sea, but further west are extended lowland areas.
Travellers here till enjoy a rather beautiful spot of Iceland, the innermost part of the fjord shows an interesting mixture of volcanic mountains and green vegetation in summertime. Lupins can be seen along with different sorts of other flowers and moss, as well as small forests of birch wood and conifers. The area displays a good example of the planting of forests, a project that has been going on in Iceland for some years. A hiking trail to the highest waterfall in Iceland, Glymur, has its origin at the innermost end of the fjord. Nearby the Farmhouse you can enjoy:
