Family Day by Lake Mývatn

The staff at Saga Travel traveled to Lake Mývatn for a family day last Sunday 6th of December. Our first visit was Vogafjós Restaurant, were we enjoyed a hearty winter stew with a glass of fresh milk and a massive dessert, a tiramisu, home made icecream and a pancake with cream. After a wonderful lunch we drove over to Dimmuborgir, to search for Icelandic Yule Lads, but rumor has it that they hang out there during the day. We found two of them in good spirits, Skyrjarmur (Skyr-Gobbler) and Þvörusleikir (Spoon-Licker). They promised the kids some nice presents in their shoes and told stories of their family members. We also found out that a filmmaker had made a few videos of their adventures, they can be viewed here.

After an entertaining visit with the Yule Lads it was time for a Christmas bath in the Mývatn Nature Baths. A welcomed and warm treat after all the snow in Dimmuborgir. The water there also does wonders for the skin, if you aim to look your best over the holidays.

A wonderful day for all the family.
