We woke up in Reyðarfjörður and then set off to Kirkjubæjarklaustur. On our way we made three stops. First we saw two glacial lagoons; Jökulsárlón and Fjallsárlón. The scenery was impressive, I have never seen something like that before. Our last stop was in Svartifoss Waterfall, we hiked for a while to get there but we took great pictures there.
To finish the day, we made it to a little lodge in the middle of nowhere.
Here you have all from the two glacier lagoons. Just wanted to remember you all the pictues were taken in July ; )
During our last day visiting the Diamond Circle, we stopped at Húsavík to fill the gas tank of our car and buy some food for the day.
Then we visited the Ásbyrgi canyon, we walked around for about an hour, quite an amazing place, all surrounded by trees and endless stone walls.
Our last stop before a three hour road trip to Reyðarfjörður, was to see Dettifoss and Selfoss waterfalls.
I have never seen anything so powerful and big as Dettifoss.
These are all from the canyon but the last one which is from Reyðarfjörður. Some from the waterfall in the next entry, c-ya!
After resting, we went to visit some caves in the area including Grjotagja where Games of Thrones was filmed. It is forbidden to dip in that one, but we found Stóragjá where we spent quite a long time bathing (and we were all by ourselves).
Then we visited Dimmuborgir and we walked around for a couple of hours, we visited the main points of interest. To end the day we relaxed in Mývatn nature baths where I enjoyed a volcanic mud mask : )
After enjoying a wonderful house in our Grundarfjörður apartment we visited Kirkjufellsfoss waterfall which was just 5 minutes away from our house. The Snaefellsnes Península is really worth seeing but we didn’t spend much time there. Then we drove for about four hours to Hofsós.
We just stopped in Blönduós to eat a quick pizza and buy some food in the supermarket. In Hofsós, we visited the pool, we didn’t dip in though, as there were too many people (maybe because it was Sunday), instead of doing that we took a little walk by the ocean.
Finally we looked for our air b&b house (this time it was a farm) in Sauðárkrókur. There we played a little bit with the Icelandic horses, had a light dinner and went to sleep.
