  • Day72


    June 10, 2018 in Iceland ⋅ ⛅ 10 °C

    Today's road trip to Vik was a bit delayed due to 'inclement' weather yesterday. We had to turn back and admit defeat after spending 30 minutes driving through the thickest fog I have ever seen. The roads were okay til we got a bit of altitude. Then suddenly we were in complete white-out, literally unable to see clearly 4 meters in front, on winding roads with steep cliff-drops to the right. Knuckles gripping the wheel and windscreen wipers full blast. Life is too short.

    But the sun came out today, and it probably even got up to 10C, an Icelandic summer heatwave.

    Waterfalls galore (Seljafoss & Skogafoss most notably). You can walk behind chilly Seljafoss which was super fun and wet!

    We drove past a glacier to reach Vik, and en route saw puffins on the cliffs (!!!) as well as a dead seal on the beach. The Dyrholaey sea arch, basalt rock formations, cliffs, birds... views were amazing- postcard perfect .

    We drove up to the 1930's church, Vikurkirkja, with views over Iceland's southernmost city. Had a play on the black sand beaches, and (at Jesse's insistence) we hiked out to Solheimasandur- a 3.5km hike (each way) across flat crunchy empty landscape to reach the site of a 1973 US Navy plane crash.

    Huge, great day!!! Beat!

    Vik and Reynisfjara

    February 12, 2015 in Iceland ⋅ ⛅ 36 °F

    Vik has a small clothing store featuring "ice wear." Glenda went inside and found some beautiful and functional clothing, all of which was very expensive. I filled up the tank, but found that because of the requirement to buy a pre-paid gas card, I will not used nearly all of the gasoline I have purchased. We saw white snow on a black basalt beach where I photographed the rocks at Reynisfjara, a three-masted ship turned into stone by trolls, according to legend.Read more

    Mooie zwarte stranden en kliffen met basalt. Boven op staat een vuurtoren die inmiddels een B&B is op een top lokatie!
    Ze hebben zelfs papegaai duikers en Alec smelt daarvoor
    Ook mooi uitzicht op de Myrdiljökull trouwens

    Den 5

    August 28, 2017 in Iceland ⋅ 🌙 16 °C

    V plane bol beach hopping, preto hned po zobudeni sme dali zvedavy pohlad z okna. Prsalo a fucalo. Predpoved ale bola pozitivna. V preibehu dna ma prestat prsat. Obliekli sme teda vsetky vrstvy a navrh prsiplaste z Ikea 😀 Prva plaz bola Reynisfjara Beach ( Nekonecne kilometre cierneho piesku a bielej morskej peny. Boli tu aj tie zvlastne stlpcovite kamene. Nasledovala Kirkjufjara beach ( Toto bol utes 50m nad morom s vyhladom na vsetky smery. Este stale prsalo a fucalo. Od tial sme presli na Dyrhólaey Lighthouse ( majak tak cirka 100m nad morom. Cesta bola zatial navacsi zaberak pre nasu Skodu CityGo. Ani sama neverila ze je 4x4. Ale zostali jej vrzgat tlmice. Tu boli najfotogenickejsie vtaky, mali puffini ( Boli ich tu mraky. Dalsia zastavka bola ako z katastrofickeho filmu. Svet v roku 2200 po 4 svetovych vojnach. Uplna cierna vyprahnuta krajina. V strede nicoho vrak lietadla Solheimasandur Plane Wreck ( Tieto nekonecne plane popola a vulkanickeho kamena su velmi dramaticke. No potom sme sa uz museli ponahlat kupit veceru, lebo v mestecku Vík s 300 obyvatelmi, kde byvame, je obchod otvoreny len do 20:00. Vecer uz neprsalo a nefucalo. Zajtra ma byt prudko slnecny den, ale moc tomu neverime🤔.Read more

    Dyrhólaey 1/2

    September 29, 2016 in Iceland ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

    Direkt neben dem Black sand beach, eine Ausfahrt weiter, gelangt man zur Halbinsel Dyrhólaey, die eine tolle Aussicht auf den Beach bietet. Vom Parkplatz aus sind wir dann noch zu dem etwas höhergelegenen Leuchtturm gewandert.

    Dyrhólaey (isl. „Türlochinsel“) ist eine 115 m hoch aufragende Halbinsel im Süden Islands, etwa 6 km westlich von Vík í Mýrdal.

    Dyrhólaey ist für ihren Vogelreichtum bekannt. Im Sommer nistet hier neben Seeschwalben u.a. auch eine große Kolonie Papageitaucher.
