ICELAND TOUR: Day 7 Reykjavic, Iceland | University of Chicago Volleyball, March 24-30, 2019

By Aasha Dave and Audra Berg

Hi everyone Aasha and Audra here!!

Our day began bright and early back to Reykjavik at 8am. Compared to our last trip, it was smooth sailing.

We stopped at a gas station and continued to eat our way through the chocolate bars of Iceland, our personal favorite being Rís, a milk chocolate bar filled with corn puffs.

At the end of our journey we stopped at two waterfalls, Hraunfossar and Barnafossar. We ate our lunch and walked to see the falls. Hraunfossar is almost a kilometer long and Barnafossar is so powerful it’s water punched an arch into the surrounding rock.

Both were formed from glacier water flowing throw magma. The weather could not have been better with clear skies and no wind.

Finally, we continued on our way back to Reykjavik, immediately getting classic hot dogs, covered with 3 different sauces and 2 types of onions! We then continued to walk around and shop for souvenirs for our loved ones back home, which included going to a chocolate shop.

Food and shops in Reykjavik.

We had a traditional Icelandic meal for dinner. Some people had lamb stew while others had fish soup, both were served in mouth watering bread bowls.

We were able to grab some sweet treats, before turning into the hotel for the night, such as gelato!

It was an amazing last night in Iceland and we couldn’t have asked for a better week or a better team to share this with.

We went to bed to rest up for our last day in Reykjavik, and the long plane ride the next day. Xoxo Audra and Aasha
