Akureyri
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.
Selfoss
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.
Borgarnes
In this video, we cover the 4th and last part of our travel. Having completed our round trip through the east-central part of the country, this time we headed north along the western coastal region. The sun was high in the sky with intermittent floating clouds - a perfect day weather wise. The drive was much more scenic. We took a short stop at Borgarnes for a quick breakfast/lunch before entering the mountainous roads.

About Húsavík

Whale watching! occupied our minds since the start of the day. We had to reach Husavik from Myvatn before 3 pm, i.e. where our whale watching adventure was due to set off from. Hence, wasting no further time other than the morning freshening up and breakfast we headed off straight to Husavik.(Our mornings there usually started at 12pm, not going by the sun since there was practically no time the sun used to fully set but by our own timings since we used to sleep not before 3am).Husavik - a small town of Iceland, where the houses were exceptionally decorated; had made way to our list for the epic adventure we were to witness, Whale Watching!North Sailing is the cruise group we had chosen to take us to this hour long adventure mid sea to witness the whales as studied in geography and GK books before. Well here we were so lucky that we witnessed a sleeping whale that too real close, so much so our boat would have been rendered like Titanic had it decided to act agitated. An hour long mid sea venture rendered us famished, and we hopped into our first this trip, a fine dining restaurant that went by the name Gamli Bakur.The restaurant offers great Icelandic delicacies. I am talking Icelandic sea food here, brilliance it was that went into our stomach.
