Day 25: Höfn – Reyðarfjörður

posted in: Uncategorised | 0

After leaving our “little hytte” at Höfn Camping, we continued our drive along Highway 1 eastwards (anticlockwise).

Just after leaving Höfn, we encountered “the cloud machine”, where very dense cold clouds from the Vatnajökull glacier poured over the cliff edge, and literally plunged down to the road, just like a “cloud waterfall” – extremely impressive and totally weird climatic conditions, especially driving through the middle of it.

Whilst driving along this coastal road, we occasionally stopped off, to admire the local sea stacks and beaches.

We stopped in Djúpivogur for lunch, which was a very nice small fishing village.

We then drove on to Reyðarfjörður, where we set-up camp at the local campsite, before walking into town to eat dinner.

On the way we fed the local campsite ducks.
