hot springs on the moon – DAY 1.2 in ICELAND

Our journey continues into the Icelandic highland. The picture above is a rarity as you usually neither see vegetation nor creatures in this territory.



In general it looks like this:

Oh, but here we have another exception (there’s a glacier hidden in the fog!):

As you can see the weather wasn’t the best. And it was such a pity that we drove between those two huge glaciers but weren’t able to see them! But the over night stop at Hveravellir or better the extensive bath in the hot spring next to the hut has made it all up again. Unfortunately I didn’t take a picture of the spring but this is what the surrounding looks like:

And while we sat in the spring, refusing to ever get out into the cold again, even the weather cleared up !

The hut itself is very basic but perfectly fine. You can buy food and beverages but if you ask kindly you can even use the kitchen. Our second camping attempt failed due laziness (again!). So instead of using the nearby campground, we fell into a deep sleep in our sleeping bags in a dorm.

  1. Uuuuaah, das ist ja wirklich ein Sauwetter. Toll, dass ihr durch’s Hochland gefahren seid. Das milchiggelbe Wasser hat eine irre Farbe. Wir hatten nur einen normalen PKW gemietet und damit haben uns schon die normalen Schotterpisten gereicht. :) Aber mit einem geeigneten Auto ist das ja alles keine Sache. Bin gespannt wie es weitergeht. Liebe Grüße

    • haha, das glaube ich! im hochland sind auch eigentlich nur monster-trucks rumgedüst (und eben wir mit unserem mini 4WD). wenn ich in dem Tempo weitermache mit dem Bericht, bin ich in einem Monat dann endlich am letzten Tag angelangt ;) Schön, dass Du so tapfer dabei bleibst :D

      • Gerne bin ich mit dabei. Wenn ich in meinem Tempo weitermache, bin ich auch noch ewig dran. Aber so kann man sich immer wieder so schön dran erinnern. :)
