🇮🇸 Day 8: Selfoss to Keflavík Airport Last day. Rain stopped just in time. Being close to the airport again means massive amounts of tourists. Most of them apparently only do bus tours around the "golden circle", which is like a day trip covering the sights in the south and south-west of Iceland. Started at Kerið, a volcanic crater lake early in the morning again so I was the only person there. Incredible color of the water in it. Geysir area afterwards, one of them "explodes" regularly every 6-8 minutes. Yet another waterfall Gullfoss - probably breathtaking for the tourists not seeing any other waterfall, but I definitely liked some others better. Made my way to the Blue Lagoon, quite famous high resort geothermal spa - no chance to get in without a reservation weeks before though. I could've entered between 9pm and 11pm for 65 EUR. No thanks... Instead headed to Reykjavík, since I kind of skipped it on the first day of the roadtrip. Feels like a small village, but yes, it's their capital. Relaxed in the afternoon in a pool there, quite exhausted after a week full of action and spending the nights in my rental car and driving roughly 2,700km. Just another night at the airport and back to Germany via London... __________________________ SUMMARY: Incredible. Felt like being on a different planet. Water and waterfalls everywhere, hardly any people outside Reykjavík area. Even on the "main" road nr. 1 you can sit fifteen minutes on the road without any car passing by. Quite expensive country in terms of food prices and accommodation and rental cars. The latter one is neccessary however - otherwise you won't get to a lot of interesting points. Including flights (Germany via London), rental car, gas, food etc. I spent around 1.100 EUR which is probably close to the cheapest you can get as I had no cost for accommodation beside little camping ground fees. You however can also spend 4.000 EUR but you won't see more. So I personally prefer 3 holidays like this for the same price. Next up... Svalbard!
