Iceland has many different views …here are more…. amazing waterfalls…
Seljalandsfoss a 60m waterfall in a lovely location,surrounded by cliffs and green slopes.
A footpath leads behind the waterfall… little bit wet….
such beautiful green….
This is Eyjafjallajokull, the volcano which broke out in April 2010 and had me and mum stranded in Germany for a week because of the ash in the air so the planes couldn’t fly. We now saw it dormant with snow. (1660m high) I never thought I would see this volcano.
Then we went to a crashed plane wreck on the coast on black sand. It was a US Navy DC3 and it crashed 1973 because it ran out of fuel. All survived and it turned out later that the pilot switched to the wrong fuel tank.
I went even inside….
It feels it is in the middle of nowhere but in the back you can see the glacier.
Black sand just everywhere.
Very little growth…
I loved the sand and the sea, it was sunny too, see I tanned a bit!
This is the Solheimajokull glacier.
It says that with the global warming it can disappear within 100 to 200 years.
The last stop was the huge Skogafoss Waterfall.
We got very wet, but as the sun was shining the rainbow went all the way round.
We walked all the way to the top.
We had a busy day and chilled out with an original Icelandic yogurt – Skyr
We enjoyed the whole experience as well as the Icelandic food!
I can only recommend Iceland for its nature, wonderful people, clean air, amazing drinking water ( ph 8.8- tastes fantastic) and its food.
I hope you enjoyed my day trip as much as I did!
