Iceland Glacier Walk

Iceland Glacier Walk

Iceland is a country of exceptional beauty and the sharply increasing number of visitors proves that. One of the most memorable experiences of my Iceland visit was the glacier tour. You can do it in several places in Iceland and my choice was the Sólheimajökull glacier in South Iceland. This glacier is located about 160 kilometres and a two hour drive from Reykjavik. Experienced Icelandic Mountain Guides have been leading tours there since 1994. If you don’t have a car, do walk as part of your South Coast and Glacier tour by Reykjavik Sightseeing and also visit other top sites on the South Coast.

About the Sólheimajökull Glacier

Sólheimajökull is an outlet glacier that flows from main Mýrdalsjökull glacier where the mighty Katla Volcano rests. It last erupted in 1918, therefore, the glacier is partly covered by a volcanic ash. The glacier tongue boasts a surface area of about 8 km in length and 2 km in width. The spectacular surroundings are marked by rugged and majestic rock formations thoroughly shaped by the glacier.

How to become an expert of Riga’s Art Nouveau architecture in half an hour

How to become an expert of Riga’s Art Nouveau architecture in half an hour

If there is just one reason for visiting Riga, the capital of Latvia, it is the fact that the city has the finest and largest collection of Art Nouveau buildings in the world, with over 800 houses built in this style. More than 438 hectares of the historical Centre of Riga are inscribed onto the UNESCO World Heritage List, recognizing its great collection of outstanding Art Nouveau (Jugendstil) architecture. Janis Krastins, a professor of architecture, said: "In Brussels you pass one or two Art Nouveau buildings when you walk down the street, but here, Art Nouveau is everywhere you look." I am Latvian and sometimes I have a feeling that Latvians are too self critical and reluctant to praise their own country. With this photo essay I would like to make my contribution to advocating the beauty of my beloved Riga. How it all started The Art Nouveau golden age coincided with the city’s rapid economic growth in early 20 century. It was more than 10 years before the disastrous First World War.
