10-day road trip with a jeep through Iceland and 2 days in Reykjavik

Day 1 Keflavik to Háifoss and Grannifoss Our plane arrives around 15pm at Keflavik International Airport. We are lucky, just when we are in the arrival hall our luggage appears on the transport belt. We attach the shoulders straps back on our duffel bags because we have to walk about 700 meters towards the car rental. It seems to be very busy at the car rental. But about 10 minutes later we got our 4×4 car. A Nissan Patrol Arctic, it’s really big…

10-daagse rondreis met jeep door IJsland en 2 dagen in Reykjavik

Dag 1 Keflavik naar Háifoss en Grannifoss Rond drie uur in de namiddag landen we in Keflavik International Airport. We hebben geluk, juist wanneer we aankomen bij de bagageband, zien we onze bagage al tevoorschijn komen. Zo snel als we kunnen monteren we onze schouderbanden  op onze duffel zakken. Het is namelijk nog een 700-tal meter wandelen tot aan de autoverhuur. Het is verschrikkelijk druk aan infobalie van de autoverhuur. Maar gek genoeg staan we tien minuten later al aan…

Langisjór – Sveinstindur, Eldgjá and Landmannalaugar

Langisjór – Sveinstindur, Eldgjá and Landmannalaugar

Last year we discovered this region, situated west of the Vatnajökull glacier. The surroundings around the Langisjór lake are very desolate. It feels a bit surreal, it feels like you’re walking on the moon. 🙂 A giant black sand surface, with occasional mountains covered with bright green moss.
