I spent the day with Iceland pal Siggi from South Iceland Adventures, and Kim & Monica, pictured above. It was a fun group to go on a super Jeep adventure with.
We started by visiting a glacier tongue. The scale of these glacier is incomprehensible in photographs. While they are massive now, they were much larger, and for the last few number of years have been shrinking drastically. Both Siggi & Eiran [my guide from the day before] tell stories of where they climbed not just from ten years ago, but from last year, and last week. Rapid changes at unimaginable speeds.
After that we headed over to Pörsmork. To get there we had ford a sizable river. Certainly the largest river I've ever crossed in a car. This is what it looks like from inside. A tasty lunch of mushroom soup and we headed off on our ascent. A tough and challenging task, but one I'm quite proud of accomplishing. [Side note: bring lighter pack next time!]
We then headed to one of my favorite spots, Gljúfrafoss, which is a famous waterfall. After exploring around for a bit we went off to the black sand beaches near Vestmannaeyjar. With some "New York Style" off road driving from Siggi we came up to this abandoned ship wreck on the beach. All around great day with fun folks.
