    ... weather is too cold to make use of it. Akureyri is the main gateway for whale watching in the North and also has boats heading to Greenland. It would be a great place to base yourself for a few days to really explore this area but we don't have time to do much other than visit shops and the few tourist areas in the town. Tomorrow we head off back to the West of the island and, all being well, will end up at the Snæfellsnes ...

    ... black thing that could seat 10 easily, 7.3ltr engine, 46in wheels, tyres deflated to 12psi to deal with the Highland roads. I also visited some of the local sights - black bubbling mud pools, the crater from Oblivion, Krafla, the crack between the plates where a mountain split in two, Dettifoss which is the most powerful waterfall in Europe (aka the waterfall from the beginning of Prometheus), Ásbyrgi which is a massive horseshoe shaped canyon and home via ...

    ... Just outside the restaurant we walked a trail for some photos of pseudo craters and Lake Myvatn. They are called pseudo craters because they we formed by vented steam rather than volcanic activity. It is one of the volcanically active regions on earth. Beautiful views on a sunny day!

    Our last stop was to Godafoss. The “Waterfalls of the Gods” is not only one of Iceland’s most ...
