We arrived in Isafjordur at 8:00. The town of 3000 is in the far northwest of Iceland, the oldest part of the country, geologically. The weather looked pretty bad. It was windy, rainy and only about 45 degrees. But we were scheduled to go on a tour with BS-Tours (www.bstours.is) to Dynjandi waterfall.

The sweet little lady who served us could not have been more adorable, and neither could the house. Lots and lots of old family photos lined the room we had our TINY cups of coffee in, and we loved ...
