Iceland - day 7

Day 7 started with a short hike to Svartifoss waterfall. Very picturesque with amazing stone formations. It was much less crowded than other waterfalls, much to my liking.

Next, we visited two “tongues” of Vatnajökull glacier - Skaftafellsjokull and Svínafellsjokull. I enjoyed Svínafellsjokull better. There was even path along the ice, sometimes quite narrow but it really gave the overview of how large this glacier really is.

Next we visited beautiful, little church in Hof. Very unique. And next two photos are from a stop along road number 1.

Main point of that day was to see ice floating on water. That was one of the things I really wanted to see. We visited two lakes in close proximity to each other - Fjallsarlon and Jokulsarlon. Definitely something to see if you’re in the area.

Practically the whole day we were running from the storm. In most of the pictures you can see storm clouds on the left (coming from west while we were travelling east). Every place we stopped it seemed to catch up with us. At the end of the day we finally left it behind. Our last stop was Eskey view point.
