... to see. It's still a great dive, after your face becomes so numb you can't feel it any more, it is quite enjoyable. The dive lasts around forty minutes and it's then a slog back to where we started for a warm drink. I have the option for a second dive but as it's the same route as the first I decline. Really enjoyed the dive but don't feel the need to do it again. Back to HQ where Deb has returned from the pool. It was four different pools all of various ...

... 8221; usually within 12 – 24 hours the deepest blues begin to whiten because the compression is no longer as strong. In Iceland the main reason pieces break off of the glacier is because of the tidal flow. The tide in Iceland changes the water level by 1-2 meters each tide cycle which causes the glacier to move up and down. This uneven movement ripples through the glacier eventually causing the calving. ...

... perch on the cliff. I had forgotten to put on my wool cap before we sprung out of the car, so with my wet head we decided to warm up with coffee at the small food stand adjacent the car park. I hadn’t yet eaten, so we purchased a smoked lamb sandwich to enjoy on the road.

A short time later we passed Eyjafjallajokull, pronounced AY-yah-fyad-layer-kuh-tel, the volcano named for the family farm that sits at its base, made world-famous in 2010 when its ...

... 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 ...

Glaciers and Icebergs, Check

7 April 2014: This morning, Sigga made us breakfast again and then hugged each of us goodbye as we grabbed our bags and hit the road. Our next planned layover would be in Hofn, on the east coast and about a four hour drive from Skogar. However, we had two important missions to accomplish first, walking on a glacier and seeing some icebergs. In order to tackle the former, we drove northeast along the ...

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!
