Iceland Trip // South Iceland // Part Five

by Yoshi Saura December. 05, 2018 462 views

After seeing the waterfalls, we had a long drive on the way through to Jökulsárlón (pronunciation) . This was the first day that Shibe had an opportunity to fly his drone.

As they say, the weather is volatile in Iceland so that window of opportunity changed quickly to wind and rain.

Don't worry, we knew what we were getting into and a positive attitude remained as we continued our journey.

In between passing the glaciers, I passed out for a bit in the car. I was amazed at how well Shibe dealt with the jet lag, unlike myself. I had envisioned us pulling over to take 20 minute naps while driving the first couple of days but he continued to drive until we reached every destination.

He deserves a medal.

I woke up to his gasping as we passed over a narrow one lane bridge. Just off into the distance, the floating glaciers of Jökulsárlón could be seen.

We arrived just in time to see the last bit of light over the horizon

Both of us agree that Jökulsárlón was our favorite Icelandic feature we saw in person during our time there.

Nothing can quite describe the magnitude and tranquility of watching these giant pieces of ice float out from the glacier to melt into the ocean.

Skyrhúsið Guesthouse was only fifteen minutes away from Jökulsárlón.

After checking into our room, we walked over to a local restaurant and had my favorite meal. I had fresh caught arctic char and Shibe had lamb meat balls. This meal was mouth watering-ly delicious. In fact, I think about it often when I miss the tastes of Iceland.

I will definitely be ordering this again when we go back!

Good! Iceland is so, so, so worth every penny to visit! It may be on the spendy side, but you will not regret it. If you ever get the chance, definitely go!
