As mentioned in my last post, we drove to Grænavatn on our day three, where we then found a track which wasn’t on any of our maps and so we thought it would be fun to explore it. I don’t really know what to call this track, but even if it didn’t have a name it was still fun to drive it.
At one place the track took us over the river Jökuldalakvísl in a very unusual way… Since the part crossing the river was made out of a lot of different old pipes which had been lade in the river to drive on. I think the track over the river was actually closed, but since it wasn’t that easy to turn around and drive all the way back, we decided to continue on driving. But as you can see you definitely need a real Icelandic Jeep to drive in places like this, so it’s a good thing we have one 😉
Once again we saw some amazing view and it happened so often on this trip that I got completely blown away by how beautiful Iceland really can be. The colors can be so intense and change from the darkest of black to the deepest green I’ve ever seen, and then everything in between. It really is mind blowing.
