We lived in a cosy wooden cottage with our own outdoor hot tub.
From the hill on the eastern side of the Haukadalur valley you have a great view of Strokkur. Head up the trail from the F333.
Great for hiking.
Cross the bridge in the Mountain Resort and follow the creek southwards. After a 20 min walk you’ll find a small but wonderful natural hot spring.
Impressive waterfalls; not to be missed when in this area.
Look for the beautiful little black glass stones, up on the hill.
This area is very important in Icelandic history because the Icelandic Parliament was established here in 930 AD. It’s also home to a beautiful national park.
It is the myth that the good troll Bergþór used to live in a cave on the mountain Bláfell.
This lake exists thanks to the glacier to the north. Also located north of the waterfall Gullfoss.
Our thoughts about Iceland South
The wilderness! Iceland is a breath-taking country full of beautiful nature, wonderful food and inspiring art and culture. It has so many different facets and surprises wherever you go.
Sigur Ros, Olafur Arnalds, Björk, FM Belfast, Seabear, Vök…
Bathing in natural hot springs, watching the Northern Lights, cross country hiking, eating Skyr, attending a concert from a local band, talking to the trolls and elves.
Take a vacation into Our life
We are a family of four currently based in Berlin but we love to go on adventures near and far. Tanja (with both Swedish and Austrian roots) started Nectar & Pulse in 2010. Chris (originally from Hamburg) and Tanja met in 2011, fell in love, got married, and became parents to their beloved kids, Jonathan and Victor. Chris worked for BMW and holds a PhD in Mechanical Engineering but switched over to working at Nectar & Pulse in 2015. We are soulmates with a shared love for family, business, travel, transformation, fashion, music, exceptional hotels and wonderful places made with love. From luxury trips to getting up close and personal with nature and locals, we love it all. Come along and follow us! ☺ We love to show you the world from our perspective.
Oh so many, but mostly the tiny little moments in between, when we realise we’re living the life we always dreamed of.
People of all kinds. Smart people, happy people, passionate people, funny people, successful people, small people (=kids ☺ ), old and wise people, people who dare to be pioneers and do something really well or love to do it.
Travelling. Nature. Sex. Urbanity. Fashion. Photography. Music. Films.
Each other. Love.
Soulmates who just HAD to meet! Make babies, business and life together. ☺
Love. Family. Business. Wanderlust. Nectar&Pulse.
