      Managed to hit 5 hikes, mostly easy hiking, today.

      Hike 1 - although I didn't get to do my target hike at Thorolfsfell because of weather and snow pack, I hiked a steep but technically easy mountain just to the west of it.

      ... to see the icebergs that were bobbing around. It was breathtaking to catch the first glimpse of the lagoon and very surreal being hidden amongst misty mountains with a glacier on one side and icebergs on the other. We couldn't believe our luck. Now we have ended up at our hotel in Vik. Tomorrow morning we plan to head to the black sand beaches that Vik is famous for. It is a very quiet area - like much of Iceland. Most of ...
