Iceland - day 11

Another day, another location. This time we entered Western Fjords and travelled through the main road up to Isafjordur, where we stayed for the night. Western Fjords are amazing and full of wonderful landscapes, unfortunately for us sunny weather has ended and we even didn’t see them in full glory and all of its colours. Smurf house at Holmavik aside, all photos were made “on the road” without tracking specific locations.

Iceland - day 10

Day 10 started with Akureyri - the Capital of North Iceland. Lovely city in a very picturesque location.

More photos from the road number 1.

Glaumbaer (Glaumbær) - an open-air museum of traditional Icelandic turf houses. Such architecture provided insulation in harsh weather conditions and was also a solution to insufficient amount of wood available. I think that from all sites of this type, this was one the best. The biggest and also very well preserved. If you want to see the buildings from inside there is a need to buy a ticket.

Few more shots from the road. :)

Iceland - day 8

8th day meant driving into east coast of Iceland. Not many waterfalls there but a lot of amazing landscapes to photograph. I honestly had a hard time choosing photos to show and there are more that I wanted to show in the first place, but what the hell. ;)

After the night at Haukafell camping we rode to Höfn.

Next stop was little town called Djupivogur. We saw the most amazing landscapes driving there.

After quick lunch in Djupivogur we went further north along east coast, driving road number 1. We settled for the night at Egilsstadir camping before exploring north the next day.

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.

Svínafellsjokull from a different angle.

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.
