Travel Blogs from Laugarvatn
... br> Laugarvatn is a very, very small village of about 200 people, and there really wasn't a lot to see there, but it was right in the middle of the main sights so it made sense to stay there. Iceland is, of course, next to impossible to see without a car (buses worked well enough for me but they just aren't as practical, especially in a place like this where there is only one bus a day back to Reykjavik!). I luckily ran into some people with a car who agreed to let me ...
Today we saw the top tourists sites in all of Iceland; gulfoss and Gysir. We first went to Gulfoss which is a huge multilayer waterfall! It had a huge amount of water flowing down, it is so big with so much water that it is impossible to see the bottom of the waterfall.

We tried to stay up to see the midnight sun but that didn't happen, way too tired so fell asleep. Will aim for tomorrow ...

I then headed off again to drive on, another 30km or so, to Geysir where, you've guessed it, the famous Geyser is (well actually several of them). A warming lunch of Lamb soup - yes, I know, it sounds ...
