Gullfoss revisited

Gullfoss

Three weeks from today I will arrive in Iceland. I won’t be visiting Gullfoss this time. Instead, I’ll be heading to and around Northwest Iceland, soaking in hot springs and sleeping in the back of my rental van.

Thermal Falls

View from hike to Reykjadalur Hot Spring Thermal River (Iceland)

Today’s photo comes from my hike to the Reykjadalur Hot Spring Geothermal River, certainly the most amazing bath I’ve ever taken.

Anyone familiar with the northwestern fjords of Iceland? Any similar bathing places in that region?

I covered Reykjavik on my first trip, most things between Reykjavik and Blue Diamond Beach and the Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon on my second, and will be exploring the area north of Reykjavik on my third (in just over two months).

Blue Lagoon

The Blue Lagoon

Later this month I’ll be booking my tickets for Europe this summer. If my flight goes through Iceland on my way to Copenhagen, again, I will likely spend a couple nights north of Reykjavik. The Blue Lagoon won’t be on my agenda this year. Instead I’ll try to get to places like the fjords in the northwestern part of Iceland. Any suggestions for particular “must sees”?

Another possibility is a couple nights in Frankfurt, Germany on my way in. Any fans of Frankfurt who would encourage that option? I’ve been to Berlin but only the airport in Frankfurt.

Iceland church

Reyniskirkja

Reyniskirkja can be found near Vik, Iceland.

Fjaðrárgljúfur

#mystopover #iceland #photomerge #Fjaðrárgljúfur

Iceland has some other-worldly landscapes. This is a 7-photo photomerge so to get a sense of the scale, take note of the tiny human near the top of the photo, just right of center.

Faxi fishing

Catch anything?

Apparently this river in Iceland is loaded with salmon just before the Faxi waterfall. I didn’t jump in to find out, but this guy did.
