Day 3 – tour 1 – friday

Continue through the interior to kerlingarfjoll, drive up to the top then walk down into the hot spring area.

Driving on from there to Hveravellir where we will spend the night.  Very cool area between 2 glaciers hofsjokull and langjokull, but it has a lovely warm pool.

A lot of fun today from playing in the snow to boiling eggs in the geothermal pools.

Start of track

Cool camp across from langjokull, at least there is a breeze so no flies.

Day 1 – tour 1 – Wednesday

The tour will start with most of the group flying into Keflavik airport at 8am, then we have a courier to take us to the docks to collect all of the vehicles.  Andrew will transport the 3 that arrived today to the docks so that we can get on the road to the supermarket.

We will do a supermarket shop stocking up for 3.5 days.

We then head to complete the golden circle, pingvellir, set up camp at geysir but look around there later when everyone has gone, then on to gullfoss for the afternoon. White water rafting has been changed to Thursday morning, so that everyone can recover from the early flights plus sort out the camping and storage setup, ready for a longer day on Thursday and Friday.

13 degrees, cloudy little rain and some sunshine

Lava tube replaced gullfoss today so will do gullfoss tomorrow.

Lazy day before tour 1 starts tomorrow

10 degrees no breeze at all so a few annoying flies at geysir this morning – lovely breakfast all packed up ready for another lazy day before the madness starts tomorrow.

Quick stop at the craters as there is rain heading towards us.
