🇮🇸Lonely roads in Iceland... 📆June 2018
Can we skip the winter please? 😪 Some of this year‘s best views ⛰❤️
Throwback to Summer in Svalbard ❤️ Doesn‘t happen too often that the hiking gear includes a rifle... One of few things what makes a trip to Svalbard special...
11 Wochen nach meinem doppelten oder dreifachen Bänderriss am Sprunggelenk auch mal wieder unterwegs gewesen 🤗 🇩🇪⛰ Jochberg (1565m)
Probably the best one this year... ❤️ 🇦🇹 Großer Galtenberg (2424m) - Alpbachtal, Tyrol, Austria __________ @visittirol @bergtouronline.de

🇮🇸 Seyðisfjörður - eastern Iceland. Probably the most beautiful town in the whole country. Surrounded by impressive mountains, waterfalls and a magnificent fjord, 650 people can call this place their hometown. 📷(June 2018)

Arctic hike: 🇳🇴Longyearbyen (0m) ⛰Trollsteinen (849m) ⛰Lars Hiertafjellet (878m) Crossing a glacier, meeting some reindeer and a rifle for safety reasons. Polar bear threat is permanent. Adventurous.
🇮🇸 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!
🇮🇸 Day 7: Glacier Lagoon to Selfoss Starting the second last day pretty early at around 4am - summer brightness so why not. Running a bit outoftime but I just wanted some more pictures from the glacier lagoon with some sun. Was hoping for more sun, but at least better than yesterday. Best day and area of this roadtrip with spectacular things to see: -Glaciers (once again) -Fjaðrárgljúfur (some kind of gorge) -crashed plane at Sólheimasandur Beach (crashed in 1973 - crew survived but never returned) -Skógafoss Waterfall -Seljavallalaug Swimming Pool (geothermal pool with view) Arriving late in Selfoss and it literally rained the whole night.
🇮🇸 Day 6: Höfn to Glacier Lagoon Definitely the part where I spent the most time. Incredible! 😨Never seen something similar. Watching icebergs on their very last way from the national parks to the sea and floating back to the black beach. Poor weather the whole afternoon and evening, so I decided to spend a night there, as better weather was forecasted for the next day. Spotted several seals relaxing on the ice. Cute animals 🙃
🇮🇸 Day 5: Seyðisfjörður to Höfn Sunny start into the day, incredible views around Seyðisfjörðu with great waterfalls and some rainbows. Drove into the highlands, felt like being on a different planet. Road to the mountain Snæfell was still closed unfortunately due too much water on it. Black beaches at the south coast, midnight brightness when arriving at Höfn and slowly getting closer to the glaciers. Even got stopped by the police in Höfn close to midnight and they did an alcohol test. Like I had any money to buy alcohol in Iceland. 😂 Oh, and world cup. Nigeria-Iceland with some locals in a bar in Egilsstaðir. 2-0. Bummer...
🇮🇸 Day 4: Laugar to Seyðisfjörður via Vopnafjörður Lake Mývatn, Mývatn Nature Baths, volcano Hverfjall, a hot deep blue underground lagoon called Grjótagjá with around 51 degrees, Dettifoss and Selfoss waterfalls. And roads again. Lonely roads. Lonely roads with view... A lot to see in that area where most tourists don't even end up. Halfway through the island, furthest away from Reykjavík.
