Since I postet the last pictures I’ve made of Iceland this morning, I’ll post my video once more. I just can’t stop watching it and listen to the music. Which we listened to while we were driving thorugh Iceland. So I keep thinking of all the things we saw and did when I listen to the song!
It poured on our last day. We wanted to hike to the highest waterfall of Iceland – Glymur. I was soaked only moments after starting to walk. We only hiked to a point where we were able to see the waterfall for the first time. A real bummer because it was really beautiful!
We spent the last night in Reykjavik. After a little dip in the hot pot we went to bed early since we had to get up really early for our return flight.
Iceland was really beautiful and I’m glad I had the chance to visit this beautiful country!
My dreams came true. I’ve always wanted to see an aurora. And after a few researches befor traveling to Iceland I got a little sad because everybody said it is very unlikely to see an aurora at this time of a year in Iceland. But hope dies last. As we drove through the night I noticed the clear sky and some white streaks. I got my camera and took a photo and it turned green. I got really, really excited and started taking photo immediately. I was so fascinated and couldn’t stop saying wow, amazing and breathtaking. It lasted almost 2 hours and we almost had to sleep in our car.
We spent the night in a really nice hotel in Breiðdalsvík. It was really nice after staying the previous nights in some weird hostels. Anyways, we started the day with a little hike to Hengifoss. It was a little rainy and started to snow as we got to the north east of Iceland. And the sun came out in the evening as we got to Goðafoss. That was my favorite waterfall in Iceland. Because of the bad weather we skipped Mývatn and that was a great choice. Only because of that we were able to see auroras. But those pics are going to be in tomorrows post.
After the hike through Skaftafell National Park we drove along Road One and came by the glacier sea Jökulsarlón. It was really, really awesome. I licked 1000 year old ice, as you an see in my video (By the way, thats where Tomb Raider and James Bond was filmed). And I just had to pet some Iceland Ponys. Haha! We drove along the bays on Road One until it got dark. The sunset was just so pretty!
