Sometimes when we are working on an article about a particular place or a particular region we come across a place that we absolutely loved.  When working on the text and processing the photos we are reminded of the joy and pleasure while visiting.  One such place is Krossneslaug swimming pool in the fjord Norðurfjörður at Strandir in the Westfjords.  It is a place so unique and so different that we are determined to travel there again next summer.  It seems that Strandir has a special attraction. A place that has a kind of magnetic force that keeps calling you back, even though Strandir does not have any particular natural wonder like a stunning hot spring area, a stunning waterfall or a glacier lagoon. It is simply a large natural wonder, a sanctuary and a place to find peace and quiet.  It is a place that is good for recharging the “batteries” and a place that is excellent for short, but magnificent hiking tours. Hiking tours that last for a few hours or a day or two. It is a place of stunning landscape, grand view and unusual geological formations. So if you really want to come to Iceland, stop at one place and enjoy nature and have the opportunity to drain the effort of the day in a warm pool, you should definitely select Strandir. Here you can also find a wonderful restaurant during summer and a very nice accommodation at Urðatindur guesthouse.
