Today we decided that we could take a trip round the most northerly point in Iceland. Kopasker through to the campsite at Raufarhofn. Taking in the fjords and the lighthouses, with the bird population. Heading down towards the campsite at Raufarhofn we follow the drift wood covered coastline. We stopped to look at the Artic henge site. The weather has been beautiful tee-shirt weather.
Glorious sunny morning we are wishing we had brought shorts. Exploring some local tracks today.
Arrived at Myvatn our destination for the night, tent set up and our tea is underway. The wind has dropped and no rain so a very pleasant evening.
The only problem with it not getting dark are the birds do not seem to sleep
Cloud coming in
It has definitely been tee-shirt weather today, going a little damper and cooler now.
Heading off to collect land rover from the docks then heading north, our goal is to explore the north east.
Leaving the city behind, through the tunnel
Lovely lunch stop
Arrived in Iceland to cloud and light rain, temperature is 7 degrees C, but not windy. We collect the little car that we have hired for a day until we can pick up the green truck tomorrow. Heading along the south coast we stopped at the cliffs and Gunnuhvers, before heading to our accommodation for the night to catch up on some sleep after our 1 am start. Gunnuhver geothermal area is stunning and gives you a real impression of the power of nature.
Just about to check-in for our flights back to Iceland 29th May.
Update on the old Landrover 110. if you remember our old Landrover that stays in Iceland suffered a head gasket failure just before the start of the April Fly-Drive and we had to turn to the dark side using a Toyota Landcruiser very comfortable.
The Landrover is back in the UK, the reconditioned engine that has been bought for it is now in, there are a few bits and pieces that need sorting timing etc… during this week, then it will be ready to head back out to Iceland, where it will stay until after Christmas.
