... to end. After that, we walked down to the black sand beach of the Atlantic where the seafront has smaller icebergs which have washed down the 1km long river into the sea. A memorable day. By now it's time for lunch and our guide takes us to a restaurant/museum called the Thorbergur Centre. This centre celebrates the life of Icelandic poet and philosopher Thorbergur Thoroarson. The lunch was very simple but ...

... the map, out our head torches on and went exploring. The entrance was all caved in lava chunks and these continued for the whole cave making a jagged block floor. We climbed up and down, over and around for some time, deep into the darkness which was proper black....until you shine a light on a rock.... the rocks were like rainbows. So colourful and shiny!

    I was the only guest in the hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The food at dinner and breakfast was excellent.
    The bedroom was comfortable. I thought the bathroom was a bit too small.
