Day started well, with a nice warm sun-lit tent, with blue skies outside.
This nice weather remained the theme of the day, with only occasional showers, becoming windy towards the end of the day.
Here, we not only experienced the wonder of icebergs at close hand, but also wildlife (e.g. Seals, Arctic Terns, Geese, Ducks).
The ice was crystal clear, and also nice to eat…(according to Neil)
The icebergs float downstream towards to the sea, and are commonly trapped in the river bottleneck where the road bridge crosses.
Here you could literally watch the icebergs float by you on their way out to sea, and with the river flow so high, this movement was at considerable speed.
We then followed this “iceberg river” to the sea, where smaller blocks of ice which have fallen off larger icebergs, become beached on the black sands.
We then drove onto our destination: Höfn í Hornafjörður where we rented a “very small” hytte for the night at the camping ground, to get away from the strong cold biting wind.
