    This hostel is really out in the middle of nowhere, miles down a dirt road. Incredibly isolated, but worth the drive. Amazingly beautiful setting in the open open field near the confluence of two rivers flowing to the sea. Best thing here is riding the Icelandic horses. Small rooms, no sink in the room. No water pressure. Don't plan a shower here! We enjoyed the European women who were spending a week riding.

    At last, our hostel!

    I could have ridden them all day. These beautiful, gentle, friendly horses are unique to Iceland. People come from all over the world to ride them. I would come back just to ride them again!!

    This was the first hostel where we actually met some other women travelers. These women from Germany, Switzerland and France came to spend the week …

    This morning, we decided to go to a small place for a Viking breakfast. But first, we need to explore the last of Hofn before we could have breakfast and coffee! The breakfast was disappointing, but we walked around the area (site for some Viking movies); then we set off to explore the countryside between Hofn and our next hostel, in Husey.

    ... the fence and stop charging.

    Our hotel was next to a small shopping center where we enjoyed checking out the supermarket. Bonus is the big supermarket chain in Iceland that seems to carry everything from frozen and packaged foods to baby clothes and cleaning supplies. Their cartoon pig logo can be seen all over the country.


    Myvatn to near Egilstaddur

    ... around so it was not a problem. The craters were caused by hot steam erupting the earth away leaving a crater-like shape -- just no lava going on. The fresh mowing made the area resemble parts of a golf course fairway. Adding the volcano cones immediately made me recall my nemesis of putt-putt mini-golf, the volcano-shaped hole.

    From there we went clockwise around Lake Myvatn to pick up the Ring Road. On the north side of the lake we saw what they meant about midges. What I ...

    ... keep the moisture off of the camera. Again don’t know that for a fact this is just this writers’ speculation.

    We did actually do some sightseeing today. We actually drove from the southeast corner of Iceland to the north east corner of Iceland. We visited (drove through) several small fishing towns. The first one and definitely the best was Djupivogur. There was nothing really remarkable about it ...
