Tour 3 – day 10 heading into the Landmannalaugar region stunning views and clear skies
We headed to the docks to meet Andrew and the first group stopping to look at the viking ship on the way. Once we were altogether we headed out of Reykjavik towards Hveragerdi picking up cooking gas along the way. Within Hveragerdi we stop at a Bakery amazing, there we highlight the maps with the route for the day, as well as have a shaking experience in the earthquake experience. Shopping takes plce food + goodies needed for 3 days. Off to the campsite at Arnes, tomorrow we head into the interior. After putting the tents up we head out to see some sights. Haifoss (High Falls) a waterfall that drops 122m and next to it is a waterfall called granni. We drop into an oasis Gjain, before visiting the last waterfall of the day Hjalparfoss.
Another stunning day – ending in a canyon some of you will recognise, with a lava tube + bbq area still candle lit but snow in the entrance. Poor signal tonight so will add photographs from today tomorrow.
Next blog – starts mid October final dates to be printed later.
Remember if you are interested in joining our exciting summer adventures you need to book early.
This was a coffee stop at the volcano huts with an interesting river crossing to get there. Everyone was given full instruction before we got to do the crossing.
We still have fly drives for New Year and Easter and May.
🙁 the summer is coming to an end, the final trip to Seyðisfjörður beautiful little town on the eastern fjords. We have stunning views of the eastern fjords as the sky is blue and the sun is shining. We have a stop and a photo opportunity along the mountain pass before we head to Egilsstaðir for lunch. Then we head down to Seyðisfjörður to find our camping spot before the masses arrive later. Lovely late afternoon sitting in the sun. Finally we all catch the ferry home in the morning.
Sightseeing day a bit on the bus off the bus, coffee stop at the volcano huts with an interesting water-crossing, mind you we have done 16 water-crossings to get to the interesting one. The photographs were taken on the way back after the coffee break.
Just testing the landrovers for leaks 🙂 happy to report there were none.
Waterfalls seen, crashed dakota and even some puffins – the sky is blue and the sun is shining and it is warm.
