South Iceland Adventure … Iceland Trip – Part 6 …

_MG_9566-1Hey everyone … so this is the last little update from our trip to Iceland … we spent our last full day exploring South Iceland … well that was the plan until the weather stopped us from accessing a few places … but we did have a great day overall …

_MG_9471-1 _MG_9478-1 _MG_9494-1We started out by a nearby waterfall where we stopped for a few photos and to walk along as close as we dared without getting too wet …

_MG_9626-1The only thing missing was the morning paper …

_MG_9770-1 _MG_9840-1 _MG_9861-1 _MG_9863-1 _MG_9907-1 _MG_9931-1 _MG_9911-1Our next stop was a cliff top with some great views of the stormy waters … it was quite icy with incredibly strong winds up there so we all wore crampons as an extra safety precaution … I have to say they really did help …

We spent a fair amount of time up there getting battered by the winds trying to get some pictures …

_MG_0220-1 _MG_0229-1 _MG_0234-1 _MG_0252-1 _MG_0269-1Next we went to one of the nearby Black Sand Beaches to see and take photos of the rather stormy waves …

_MG_0271-1 _MG_0296-1 _MG_0298-1 _MG_0319-1 _MG_0324-1 _MG_0342-1The interesting basalt rock formations in the cliffs were also quite interesting to see … all covered in Icicles too …

After this point we all know by now what happened … I got knocked over by a rough wave and ended up with a broken leg … but if you haven’t heard about that delightful little development already then you can ready more about that HERE

Anyway … that is it for our trip to Iceland … we had such a lovely time overall … and my only real regret is that we didn’t get to do the Blue Lagoon … but I guess that and all the other things we would still love to see and do in Iceland is good enough reason to come back again …

Till next time …

Mina X
