Sight-seeing day, watefalls, gigjokull glacier, puffins and basalt columns.
Gigjokull has changed enormously
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.
😂 View from our window this morning.
We are heading around a few tracks near pingvellir before heading to the docks to drop off the green truck by 3 pm.
Interesting day through a couple of interesting routes, then to the docks to drop off the truck, finally at the airport ready for the flight tomorrow.
Well what a day, fjord, fjord oh and more fjords. Within one fjord we can across a colonie of seals, then whilst watching the seals we saw 4 humpback whales amazing. We travelled down a lovely 4×4 valley route then finally we left the western fjords. Headed back towards Rekjavik, staying in Bogarnes in a hotel over looking the mountains and a wonderful hot tub.
more photographs to follow from camera:

Beautiful view view to wake up to, -10 degrees, cool but stunning. Off further west today but first we are heading to Reykholar.
Geirþjófsfjörður, Dynjandi; the largest waterfall in the western fjords then on to our destination for the evening Ísafjörður.

Route after coming through the tunnel our destination for the evening Ísafjörður.
Arrived a little later than usual short delay at Luton. After a short stop and to put some temporary headlights on the defender, as the headlights are playing up a bit on the old truck,
we head off. The weather is -1 degrees C no wind and sunny.
First stop bakery and an order of soup.
Heading north and west now.
Finally in a lovely hotel room, just heading towards the west, we have seen some amazing scenery along the way here are some of the sights we have seen.
Not long now until our trip to the west of Iceland – we will be arriving in Iceland on the 26th October and will hopefully update the blog with our travels, and not forgetting the photographs. We do not have any clients with us we are just going for a trip to investigate the north west for ourselves.
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.
