We checked out a couple of museums and explore the cuisine of Icelandic street food. Neither disappointed.
That's right, we went North of the Wall. Fear not, though; we didn't see any white walkers. We just saw a whole lotta natural beauty all around us. Sometimes, it honestly felt like being in a science fiction or fantasy book. Being in Iceland is like being on another planet.
We spent a few days in Bergen, and then took a 4-day tour through Balestrand, Flam, and Vatnahalsen. We hiked, saw waterfalls, and marveled at the fjords.
Our ten days in Finland in a nutshell: Air Guitar, Apocalyptica, sightseeing in Helsinki, and a handful of really fun hosts.
Our last two days with our camper were spent driving much of the eastern and northern coasts of Iceland with Ieva and Ruta.
It's exactly what the title of the post says--we hiked Solheimajokull glacier, and we hiked to the top of Kristinartindar. Just another day in Iceland!
We saw a pretty rock formation called Dyrholaey, which reminded Uri of Canada. Then we did an impromptu hike to what turned out to be a Viking grave site for one of the first settlers of Iceland. Next, we visited Fjadrargljufur canyon. Finally, we arrived at Skaftafell in Vatnajokull National Park and caught one more waterfall before sunset--because that's just what we do. Oh, and Trevor met a fan.
Our plans for Norway changed substantially, but some time in the picturesque city of Bergen and a hike in the mountains made everything all better.
