Iceland — Day 3

image-22After another nice night in our little camper van, we headed over to Sistrafoss.
A short drive later we found ourselves amidst a sizeable crowd of tourists exploring Fjaðrárgljúfur canyon.

After the slight disappointment on the previous day we decided to try our luck with F208 again and started crawling northbound. We were rewarded by a whole lot of amazing scenery. Unfortunately the pictures can merely convey an idea of the landscape.

We headed up to Landmannalaugar and had a quick bath in the hot springs there.

After Landmannalaugar we made our way further up north on F208 and F228 to Veiðivötn to enjoy another amazing viewpoint.
This is our trusty steed up there 🙂

Given the steady switch between rain and sunshine we saw a gazillion rainbows, this shall serve as representation for them:

At the end of the day we were treated to a nice sunset

This is the route for day 3:

 

Iceland — Day 2

We started the day out by taking another peak at Seljalandsfoss

Checking out Skogafoss

A quick hike to the Sólheimajökull glacier

And Reynisfjara Beach

Afterwards we wanted to make our way towards Landmannalaugar, unfortunately for that day F208 was closed between the ringroad and Landmannalaugar. So we tried to go a different way. We ended up having to turn around both on F233 and F210, but didn’t regret a single minute, as it was pretty awesome 🙂

 

 

 

 

In the end we camped at Kirkjubær II

Iceland — Day 1

After arriving in Iceland in the early morning, we picked up our gocamper and headed into Reykjavik for some breakfast.

Stocking up on some provisions we headed out to drive along the coast to head west a little bit. We stopped a bunch of times of course:

 

We ended up at the campsite next to Seljalandsfoss for our first night:

And actually got to see a little light show in the evening!
