Wanderungen auf Island Juni 2021. Zuerst Westfjorde, dann West-Mitte, danach noch Südwest mit dem (damals) aktiven Vulkan Fagradalsfjall.
Our last tour in Iceland took us to the famous Blue Lagoon. Entrance to the bathroom is very expensive.
Behind it you can see a very large geothermal power plant (energy from hot sources, common in Iceland).
Conclusion of our…
One lap each at the top of the crater rim and one at the bottom of the crater lake. The crater is 6500 years old, the lake level is at groundwater level.
Down at the lake in the back it was totally relaxing.
Get recommendations on the best single tracks, peaks, & plenty of other exciting outdoor places.
That was our "most beautiful" hike on our trip to Iceland. Temperature today up to 23 ° C (which is quite warm in Iceland).
Very green high valley with partly lava rocks and many 100 ° C hot springs. With a bath in the 40-50 ° C warm and hot stream. A lot of people on the way (Saturday).
Back to town. Great weather and warm for Iceland, T-shirt and a 🍻 in the street cafe 🥰🌞
Here it simmers boiling hot (100 ° C) to the ground. The surroundings glow in many intense colors and it smells of sulfur.
Active volcano 🌋 with massive migration of peoples.
Unfortunately we were 1 or 2 weeks late, no more red lava, but still a lot of smoke and heat. The extent of the lava flows is enormous.
How it looks in RED can be seen in the highlights ...
Today nice t-shirt weather 🌞🥰
Addendum: in the evening he spewed…
City tour in the lively and attractive capital Reykjavik. Relatively warm, we made aperitifs outside in the sun 😊
And tomorrow there is an active volcanic eruption, you can go right up to it 🌋 to the hot lava 😀
Historical "holy place" of Iceland since 930, this is where the constitution of Iceland was approved.
Is probably the top highlight of all of Iceland.
At the same place the continental rift between the continental plates America and Eurasia. Unique !!
Then there is the waterfall that drains America and…
The water from the Hraunfossar comes directly underground to the lava slope in many places, very special and extraordinary.
The Barnafoss directly above is a canyon waterfall in the Hvita River.
Round along the river and through a lot of birch bushes.
The lava cave is a good 1.5 km long and 39 m deep, of which we have walked around 600 m. The cave has a cross-section from narrow (bent over) to a motorway tunnel. The temperature in the cave is 0-1 ° C, and there is even some ice.
The cave is of course missing in the route due to the lack of GPS.
Last tour today.
Eventful day with sun, clouds, fog, drizzle and a lot of strong winds, aslo a bit of everything ...
Fog, drizzle and wind - but still beautiful lava formations along the coast.
Full of black lava rock beach, from coarse pebbles to coarse sand. Behind the beach are the remains of a sunken ship (steel parts from 1948).
Extreme northwestern point on the Snaefellsness peninsula in the Snaefellsnessjökull National Park.
Everything stops here, nothing comes, except the sea ...
Totally at the end of the world ... only accessible on a rough gravel road. Striking lighthouse, lots of lava rock, birds in rocky cliffs.
Kirkjufell, a very distinctive and extremely beautiful mountain peak, on the other side of the road is a waterfall.
Intermediate pieces (straight lines) paused and driven by car (hence the high cut).
Sunny weather but very extreme wind.
Everything is very worth seeing, definitely have a look.
Partly quite rough and somewhat demanding mountain path, but not effectively difficult and harmless.
Very nice cool tour in sunny warm weather 🌞😍
Very rarely encountered forest area.
Very well-known large stretch of beach "Raudisandur". Intense brown-red-yellow glow in the sun.
On the street the famous black church with cemetery in Icelandic style.
Unfortunately partly foggy today (hardly any visibility at the top of the gravel road pass), and also strong typical wind again.
