Having lived in Scandinavia for about ten years, I was familiar with elves, trolls and nisser, but coming to Iceland was magical, they are all there, you feel them, see them and understand why Tolkien was inspired by the landscapes. We traveled around in a “Bush taxi” (a Toyota 4×4 Landcruiser that feels home, with bed and kitchen and all you need), clearly the perfect way to discover Iceland, it was the most magical and relaxing trip I ever had.
