Iceland road trip - day 4 glaciers galore

... mini icebergs in a body of water at the feet of a glacier. Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon was next, which was like Fjallsarlon's bigger brother. The sun was beginning to set when we got there at 10pm and as we were admiring the calmness of the glistening water, 3 seals popped their heads up from the water to say hi. They wee probably hiding out in the lagoon seeking shelter from the open seas. Unfortunately they refused to be ...

... the road. Oh, did we mention that Icelandic road have no guard rails to speak of? Although the road are pretty good generally, they are narrow and have no shoulders as well. The roads are also elevated as compared to ours in Canada. We assume that is for snow control. The snow just blows off the road surface which is higher than the surrounding land.

Djupivogur was the next fishing town we reached. Here we saw the unloading of cod from a ...

... after the eruption of 1918 when the coastline was extended by 5 km (3.1 mi) by laharic flood deposits. So I found myself just sitting there and gazing off towards the glacier occasionally take a photo and just relaxing, plan for the day turned out perfectly, oh and by the way the rain disappeared and there has been blue sky all afternoon I am really hoping it sticks around as I would love to see the Glacier lagoon in the morning under bright sunshine. Fingers ...

... tempting in light of the truncated Iceland travel season.

Tonight’s hotel is a case in point. Our preferred hotel was unable to take the group, so we were booked into another 20 minutes drive away. Both were isolated from any town or village (Until about 200 years ago, Iceland was a completely rural society with no villages – just farms. Even today, there are relatively few towns throughout the island, and a population ...

... good luck as we got the second-last table and sat and watched as sad-faced people got turned away in droves. We had the langoustines for which Höfn is famous, and they were WONDERFUL - as was the service, for a change - so far we have spent a fair proportion of our time in Iceland sitting at a table covered in dirty crockery, wishing it would all go away. We wished our prawn-loving son-in-law Mike had been with us - this would have given him a new ...

Great price and great conditions

We stayed in one of the cabins, very cosy and warm and the 2 toilets was a great thing. The main guest house is also very cool, fully equipped kitchen was definitively a plus.

The only bad thing is the Internet connection, having wi-fi only on the entrance hall is not enough for such a nice place in this day and age.

Would definitively recommend to any travellers or people looking to explore the area!
