Upon arrival, we transferred to the Hotel Borg where we enjoy luxury accommodations in the very center of Reykjavik. The Hotel Borg overlooks the beautiful square of Austurvollur, and is situated across from Althingi, the Icelandic parliament and the cathedral.

Standing directly in front of church is a statue of Leif Eriksson–the first European to discover Ameria. (Landed 1,000 A.D.)
