September 17, 2018 With all the rain the night before, I was scared to open my eyes in the morning in Vík, as I didn't want rain on our final day in the wilds of Iceland. Once I pried them open, I realized I didn't hear rain, and that there was blue sky! Today had… Continue reading Heidi and Kubo Do Iceland – Day 17: Reynisfjara, a taste of Fimmvörðuháls, and all the waterfalls!
September 16, 2018 Somehow I appeased the elves, and we awoke to drier weather after dealing with rain most of the previous day. Woohoo, we could finally see the scenery around us! We ate and packed up and headed out of Svínafell with Skaftafell in Vatnajökull National Park as our destination for the morning to… Continue reading Heidi and Kubo Do Iceland – Day 16: Hiking in Skaftafell, Fjaðrárgljúfur, and Vík
Iceland Day 14 - September 14, 2018 1°C (about 34°F) weather and freshly fallen snow on the mountains greeted us in the morning in Seydisfjörður. Our coldest night in Iceland, and a good reminder that winter is rapidly on its way when you're at 65°N. After breakfast and piling on the clothes, we headed back up… Continue reading Heidi and Kubo Do Iceland – Day 14: The Incredible Eastfjords
Iceland Day 13 - September 13, 2018 The weather luck ran out. My good favors I put into the elves must've expired, and we awoke to rain that would stay constant nearly all day during our 260km of driving. Raufarhöfn was just as quiet and empty in the morning as it was the evening before,… Continue reading Heidi and Kubo Do Iceland – Day 13: Northeast Coast & Seydisfjörður
September 11, 2018 Well friends, day 11 reminded us that indeed our rain-free luck of the start of our clockwise journey around Iceland had indeed run dry (ha!) as rain and clouds greeted us in Hofsós when we peered out the windows of Carl. Foregoing breakfast, we headed to the Hofsós town swimming pool, which… Continue reading Heidi and Kubo Do Iceland – Day 11: From trolls to midges (Tröllaskagi to Mývatn)
Iceland Day 9 - September 9, 2018 Day 9 marked the near halfway point to our grand Icelandic adventure, and one of our first days to really "sleep in," which was a nice treat. There wasn't a lot on our itinerary for our last full day in the Westfjords aside from a couple of cafes… Continue reading Heidi and Kubo Do Iceland – Day 9: Soaking up the last of the Westfjords
Iceland Day 6 - September 6, 2018 Every day waking up in Iceland was the best day ever, but some days were more "best" than others, and day 6 was shaping up to be one of these days! You know why? One word: Westfjords! (And to be technical, Vestfirðir, which is the Icelandic word.) The Westfjords… Continue reading Heidi and Kubo Do Iceland – Day 6: Chasing more waterfalls, petting dogs, chilling on a ferry, and hello, Westfjords!
