Day 13: Saturday 15 July 2017
Good nights sleep, despite rain overnight (sometime quite heavy).
Weather for most of the day was a mixture of cool scattered showers, with occasional windows of blue sky and sun – with quite a few rainbows along the way…even over us at the campsite just before we left.
We also had a “local visitor” to our tent, before we left…
Left Ólafsvík Campsite after meeting with Per and his wife – another 4X4 Overlander from Norway, travelling through Iceland with his Land Rover 110.
Unfortunately, Snæfellsjökull was hidden in the rain clouds all day, so we never even caught a glimpse of the magnificent volcano and glacier.
Visited Lóndrangar to view the lava form that looks like a Viking Ship.
Arrived Borgarnes early afternoon, where we stopped for lunch.
This was originally on the agenda as our overnight campsite stop – but due to our good timing today, we decided to drive on to Hafnarfjörður.
By doing this we are gaining a day on our proposed agenda, allowing us some additional flexibility over the next 4 days,
Arrived at Reykjavík late afternoon, meeting relatively heavy traffic.
Stayed at Hafnarfjörður Campsite where we stayed here during ICE2015 – Read More:
After Pitching the tent and establishing ourselves, we drove into Hafnarfjörður town centre, to eat evening dinner.
Later, we used the Scout Campsite hut, to conduct our daily internet tasks, and write up todays blog.
