Day 14 – Tour 3 & Day 8 – Tour 4

We loose 3 of our group today – clear skies and sunshine lovely start to the day, although we did have rain over night.

Heading to pingvellir today.

Pingvellir  is a historic site and national park in Iceland, east of Reykjavík. It’s known for the Alþing (Althing), the site of Iceland’s parliament from the 10th to 18th centuries. On the site are the Þingvellir Church and the ruins of old stone shelters. The park sits in a rift valley caused by the separation of 2 tectonic plates, with rocky cliffs and fissures like the huge Almannagjá fault.

Glorious sunny day.

Then in to Reykjavik for a couple of hours whilst the 3 vehicles are taken to the docks and hotels, then into a crater for the evening.
