After a very very wet and windy night, a few soggy campers and sullen faces greet us this morning.  We are heading off to snowmobiling but it is very low cloud i fear that there will not be much to see.

Once snowmobiling is completed we then press on to jokulsarlon which is just as very wet and very low cloud the icebergs in the water look very spooky.

Day 6 – tour 1 – Monday

Back into the interior for 3 days.

Heading from Myvatn to Askja, via some wonderful craters as well as some very interesting driving and a relatively new lava field from

The 2014–2015 eruption of Bárðarbunga was an eruption in the Bárðarbunga volcanic system in Iceland, that began on August 29, 2014 and ended on February 27, 2015. The eruption emitted large volumes of sulphur dioxide and impacted air quality in Iceland. There was no effect on flights outside of the immediate vicinity due to a lack of a significant emission of volcanic ash. The eruption took place in the lava field of Holuhraun northeast of the Bárðarbunga caldera proper.
