Iceland Part V (July 22-23)

After Kirkjufell I Planned to go to Landmannalaugar and stay there over night before heading back to the Airport. Went through Thengvillir national park and made a stop at the fall called Öxararfoss. Then I planned to stop by the mighty Gullfoss, but it was a real misty day and the rain fell as usual, so I didn’t even bother to take out the camera when I stood at the fall. I got to the Landmannalaugar from the north, really glad I had a Jeep due to the bumpy road. Hiked up one mountain near the base camp looking at the ryolite coloured mountain, it really is a sight!

Due to head ache I decided to cut my hiking short at the landmannalaugar and decided to try and get a hotel room in Reykjavik instead. Looking out the hotel window at sunset the colours was everywhere, just my luck. Didn’t have any strength to get my gear and head out so I closed the drapes and went to bed instead. Last day I spoiled my body with a trip to the Blue lagoon before checking in to my last hotel stay in Keflavik.

All in all a great trip, of course I would have liked to have some better weather for sure, but this is Iceland and I knew that it could be this way. I will certainly go back in a few years time, cause it is a real mecka for those who likes waterfalls and dramatic landscapes.

Have a great weekend!
Cheers
