We arrived Friday lunchtime and just mooched around downtown Reykjavik in the steady drizzle. Our Northern Lights tour was cancelled due to the cloud cover but we were pretty knackered from travelling so a quiet meal and an early night.
Saturday was an early start and a long day trip to South Iceland. It was fabulous!
Just driving down there was stunning. We stopped at the site of the famous volcano eruption from a few years ago which caused so many travel disruptions. I learned to pronounce it which is surely one of the more useless skills.
Our first proper stop was Skogafoss. A pretty impressive waterfall. We climbed up the 287 steps to the top and enjoyed the views.
Caught a lovely rainbow on the walk down.
What a great appetizer. Next onto my first glacier.
Well, maybe later. I got that far over a week ago and have stalled with the pics and now there's loads of more current diet-y stuff to be chatting about so am going to post this incomplete and come back to Iceland pics from time to time.
Thinking of you Peri and P!
