September in Iceland is the month of Réttir – a nationwide roundup of sheep from mountains and valleys. The ancient tradition involves spending days on foot, in the saddle of Icelandic horses or ATVs followed by a grand party, where friends, family and neighbours come together to play music, picnic outdoors and help each other marshal the sheep. Fun fact – there are more sheep in Iceland than there are people. Some 800,000 roam the country vs. ~330,000 human population.
