“"When you drive in a car or coach, you cover the ground quickly but you miss so much. When you take the natural way, riding a comfortable Icelandic horse, biking or hiking, you see and hear much more—especially when you’re in a place like the unique Ásbyrgi canyon—one of the natural wonders of the world.".”
