cosmictypewriter asked: Hullo, gorgeous blog you have! As someone of Scandinavian descent, I adore the sort of endlessly foggy, wet regions that you always see in pictures of Iceland - rolling green hills, stone outcroppings, rivers. Not the extremes of snowy tundra, but the milder, foggier regions. The littler sun and heat, the better! Where would I find these geographically? Thanks so much!
The mid-south of Iceland is probably what you have in mind. The south coast is the part of Iceland that gets the most rain and is therefor abundant with grass and lush moss. Something like, Þakgil and Seljalandsfoss.

Anonymous asked: Hi! I want to do some hiking in iceland but i'm only free during the first half of June. Are any of the trails open then? Or do they all only open late June?
Most hiking trails in Iceland are not that organized that they officially open or close. However if you are thinking about the most established hiking route in Iceland, Laugavegurinn, then early June is a gamble. The route starts in Landmannalaugar which is up in the highlands and the roads to there can open anywhere between mid May to mid June.
Lower lying hiking routes should however be accessible without any trouble. But keep in mind that you can experience full winter weather any time of the year up in the mountains. Check out SafeTravel.is for some good tips.
