Today was filled with variety as we made our way around the southeast corner of Iceland. We continued to enjoy the scenery as we drove, but we also stopped for a waterfall hike, a couple of walks on beaches, and a short walk to a glacier.
Today we drove through the East Fjords visiting some of the most scenic areas. The weather wasn't great, but the natural beauty shined through.
Today in East Iceland, we drove into the eastern edge of the Highlands with views of Mt. Snæfell. We visited the Kárahnjúkar Dam and Hafrahvammagljúfur canyon.
Then we returned toward Lagarfljót lake where we enjoyed a cake buffet before visiting Iceland's third highest waterfall, Hengifoss.
After that we drove to the remote Borgafjörður Eystri where we camped for the night.
One of us got up early to do a couple of morning hikes at the Herðubreiðarlindir oasis in the Central Highlands.
Then we made the long drive back into civilization and drove to Egilsstaðir, the largest town in East Iceland, to camp for the night and prepare for next few days in that region.
