Day 7 started off strong & COLD. We managed to get up early. So Don and I hit the road while Mike & Paige caught up later. We headed to the iconic overview of the back sand beach in Vík. As well as Dyrhólaey Arch just on the other side of this cliff.
After hitting that up for sunrise we went back down the hill to Reynisfjara Black Sand Beach where Mike & Paige were. The weather wasn't very happy when we got down there. Strong winds and just water and sand smashing you in the face.
Then we finally had the chance to go up to a glacier. Which for me seems so surreal still after a weeks of being back. Its such a epic sight to see in person. Photos would never do it justice. But we went to a area where you can take tours. Unfortunately they weren't doing any tours because of weather. It was the windiest day throughout the whole trip. And the wind coming off the glacier was frigid.
Next stop was the epic Skógafoss. Very hard place to get a good shot without people but I managed to get a couple. Golden Circle area is amazing because once we finished seeing a waterfall. We were able to do this 20 min hike to Iceland's oldest hot pool. You hike into this huge valley and boom a hot pool just tucked into the side of the mountain!
Made friends too! Andrea (from LA) and Maria (from Chicago) and Probably the most anticipated sight of all of Iceland. The DC-3 Plane wreck. Just amazing.
