Iceland may be an island, but there are so many different things to see and do. You almost need a minimum of a week to see everything.
We continued our journey around the northern part of Iceland, and what did we run into?
The I-Pod of Orca whales that like to follow the humans for gourmet food and wine. We used to see the Pacific Northwest north of Seattle was the only place to see Orca whales!
Our target destination was Grundarfjordur, Iceland where we wanted to explore the Snaefellsjokull glacier area.
It is full of waterfalls that pour down the mountain. So easy to access and find. Easy drives in the summer will make so many gorgeous hikes waiting for you to explore.
Our real goal was to do a little spelunking. We went to the Vatnshellir Cave in Snæfellsnes.
There are collapsed lava tubes all over Iceland. We went down about 35 meters and started checking out the lava tube that if we had more time, we could have reached the center of the earth and seen all the wonders documented by Jules Verne.
But warning…the lava tubes are VERY cold, VERY wet and FULL of sharp lava…so don’t slip or you will be sorry!
