Did you know there are wild reindeers in Iceland? well I didn’t know either, until I saw some. What a surprise to see them on the side of the road!!!
They’ve been imported there in the 18th century, they were supposed to be domesticated, but that has been a failure, so nowadays, they run free!
They seem to be seen normally in the Eastern region of the country, and I have seen a herd not very far from the Jökulsárlón glacier. So if you are on the road in Iceland, watch around you!
I haven’t had your luck, I haven’t seen any, but it’s nice to know that this is possible.
Yes definitely! It seems they’re normally higher but they do come down to the grassland and I guess I was lucky to see them. that was in the middle of April
