AkureyriWe took a stop at the town of Isafjordur located near the creek at one of the fjords. Its dramatic landscape surroundings provided a perfect setting for a peaceful and delicious lunch. If not for our already planned trip, we would have definitely stayed here a night or two.We were once again moving as the way to Akureyri was long. During our journey, we came across some amazing landscape which we never encountered before. Iceland greeted us with bright sun, drizzle, thick fog, all on same day. It was as if we were in a fictional world. The drive was longer than we expected and we reached our next home around 1 am. We were on road for around 10 hours and soon retired for the day.The next morning was a quick one and we were once again on the road. The charm of exploring Iceland was insatiable and couldn't keep us away from the wheels for long. We had our breakfast at the outskirts of the city near a river under the perfect surrounding of mountains. Our next destination was Eskifjörður but we had many pit stops to take as the road ahead was filled with adventure and some exciting places to discover.
We were spending our next two days at Selfoss. Selfoss is the largest town in south Iceland; still it is a peaceful town with varied options for some good restaurants to try. Our entire day was already planned as we had booked a visit to the Langjökull Ice Cave. We had to drive all the way to the Klaki Base Camp. The drive to the base camp was nothing short of an adventure itself with rough roads and a weather which was windy and turning colder the closer we reached to the base camp. When we reached the base camp, we were in for a big surprise. We were just at the foot of the glacier and the wind was at its best. A big SUV was like a matchbox in front of the power of the wind and was shaking continuously. We had to take our gears from the camp which included shoes, complete pullover and pants, and gloves. The temperate near the base camp was freezing cold and luckily we had brought extra pair of jackets. We were then transported into a special purpose vehicle converted to be able to drive on the glacier. Our tour guide gave us some basic information on the Ice tunnel.
