Glymur

Glymur

The main destination for today is the Glymur. It is a waterfall despite its name does not contain “foss” 🙂 The weather is not so great anymore (because it is our last day in Iceland? 🙂 ) – we get some rain as well.

We drive a bridge across a fjord and then to  Hvalfjordur fjord (wales fjord). Further we follow the coast to the end of the fjord and here the turn aside to reach in 3km a Glymur’s parking place.

Snafellsnes peninsula

Snafellsnes peninsula looks like an elephants trunk that reaches far into ocean to the West. Snafellsnes and Westfjords peninsula together viewed recalls the animal jaws. Westfjords is the head and Snafellsnes – the lower jaw. We cross the neck of the animal for the beginning that connects Westfjords with the rest of Iceland.

Dalvik and the North Iceland

Dalvik

Today we have a plan to explore the North Iceland. The first intention was to drive the shortest way by the Ring Road. Luckily we decided to follow the suggestions of the David and drive by the ocean shore to the North. One more sunny day – just a bit of light rain in the evening.

Dettifoss and Asbyrgi

We completely changed our plan for today according to suggestions of David – our host in Selfoss. Instead of lake Myvatn we go to explore Dettifoss waterfall and  Asbyrgi canyon. The weather is still sunny 🙂

Sveinsstekksfoss

Sveinsstekksfoss

Amazingly the weather is still sunny (where are the famous Iceland weather flips?). About 250km to drive today from Djupivogur to the today’s destination Egilsstadir. At the beginning we drive 18km by the ocean shore to Sveinsstekksfoss waterfall on a shore of Berufjorsur fjord. The waterfall is visible from the highway already. We climb to get closer to it and then follow a little bit further for a couple of smaller waterfalls.
