DAY 12 – TOUR 2 & DAY 4 – TOUR 3

After a very very windy night and lots of rain we decided that it would be better for the drivers to have a lighter driving day so we had a sightseeing day.    Monday.

I took a video at 4am this morning:

Vík í Mýrdal is a remote seafront village in south Iceland. It sits in the shadow of Mýrdalsjökull glacier, which covers the Katla volcano. Reyniskirkja is a wooden church dating to 1929. Reynisfjara beach has black pebbles, basalt columns and the Reynisdrangar offshore rock formations. The cliffs of Reynisfjall mountain are home to seabirds such as puffins. Just west, the Dyrhólaey peninsula has a large rock arch.
