DAY 13 – TOUR 4 & DAY 8– TOUR 5 – THURSDAY

An eventful day, last night the Range Rover Classic managed to loose a brake pad and all of it’s brake fluid, so today has been sourcing replacements.

One of our group has now left after a trip to Pingvellir  – their vehicle was then taken to the docks and them to the hotel 🙁

After our trip to Pingvellir we then headed to Mosfellsbaer amazing bakery then into Reykjavik for the afternoon.

A second night at Geysir which I must say is lovely.

DAY 11 – TOUR 4 & DAY 6– TOUR 5 – TUESDAY

Late start.to allow people to look around Akureyri the sun is shining although cloudy and warm.

Headed into the interior the prospect is rain and the actual outcome is ☔,  we arrive at Hveravellir to rain and 5 degrees lovely.  Tents up in the ☔ but there is a cafe to get warm.  Dinner is underway under the foxwing all is good.

Been around the geothermal area bitterly cold as there is a strong wind.  However it is still brilliant.

 

DAY 7 – TOUR 4 & DAY 2 – TOUR 5 – FRIDAY

Waking to cloudy but no rain although it did rain in the night.

Looking across the area to Askja we made a conscious decision not to head to Askja as there was very low cloud and lots and lots of rain.  Instead we went for a hunt for a canyon waterfall before heading towards Myvatn.  At Myvatn we have the blue Myvatn baths & pizza after the choice of rain (which was still hanging over Askja as we passed the turning where we joined the F88 at 3pm) or Myvatn the choice was unanimous.

Arrived in Myvatn sunshine and cloud and the very high northern light forecast, although it maybe cloudy here.

Visit the ice caves first, all alone.
