Tour 4 – Day 14

Heading back to Seydisfjordur, the rain is set in for the day, low cloud over the mountain pass.  Stopped a a beautiful fishing village Djúpivogur for a coffee stop and a look around before heading to eglisstadir for lunch.

TOUR 4 – DAY 13

Glaciers, Glaciers and more Glaciers along with the odd reindeer.  Having had a very wet few days, we managed to get the tent down before the drizzle started again.  When we got to Jokulsarlon the low cloud and mist made for a very atmospheric experience.  The afternoon was cloudy but no rain still warm though.

Tour 3 Day 14 & Tour 4 Day 8

It rained heavily over night but stopped in time for the 2 families from Tour 3 to take down their tents for the last time as they are dropping their vehicles at the docks today.  Pingvellir visit first then the bakery before Tour 4 have an afternoon in Reykjavik whilst we sort the vehicles back to the docks and the airport.  The weather stayed clear whilst we visited Pingvellir but has started raining again as we make our way to the bakery.

TOUR 3 DAY 13 + TOUR 4 DAY 7

After a stunning sunset coming down from the top of kerlingarfjoll, we have a warm night and wake to a cloudy but dry day, the forecast had been for rain so was surprised.  We spent the day making our way through to the golden circle (lots of people) and our destination for the evening Geysir.  The rain finally caught up with us in the evening so another lovely day.

TOUR 3 DAY 12 + TOUR 4 DAY 6

We traversed through the interior to Hveravellir with Hofsjokull as our companion for the day, then on to our destination for the evening Kerlingarfjoll. We are travelling up to the top this evening when it is quieter. The weather has been a little windy and cloudy but visibility has been very good, when we got to Hveravellir the sun was shining and it warmed up, but it is now cooler as the sun is behind a cloud, hopefully there will be a good sunset.
