Kerlingarfjöll

Epilogue of our Canada & Iceland trip, which we ended in our beloved Iceland where we spent 3 nights in a cute wooden cabin (with our own hot pot!) in the area near Selfoss. The first day, after the overnight flight, we re-visited some of the famous "Golden Circle" places like Thingvellir, Gulfoss and Geysir and settled in the house. The second day, we wanted to take the opportunity to drive deep into the Landmannalaugar region with our 4x4 car - unfortunately our lack of experience and the fact that we had a quite normal car, prevented us from doing some of the relatively deep water river crossings - still it was a great day trip. The third day, we went to an incredible place on the old Kjölur road through the inlands of Iceland called Kerlingarfjöll. The weather conditions were very harsh, so all the photos from the geothermal area were taken in a "run and shoot" attempt from the car in about 30 minutes with heavy winds and cold rain, while Sanne and the kids had to wait in the car. Still, the entire tour was well worth it, to drive into such remote lands for hours that are only accessible a few months a year and show hardly any sign of civilisation is a special experience. The last day was reserved for a dive into the famous Blue Lagoon, with a visit to another nice geothermal area on the way to Grindavik.
