After the Arctic Adventures in Greenland our ship headed south to Iceland – a land of green whereas Greenland had been a land of ice.
We saw many whales on the way and as we approached Iceland
there were plenty of birds including the national bird of Iceland – the puffin.
We landed in the north west corner of Iceland at Stykkishólmur. We had a tour of this area of Iceland visiting a cave formed from a lava plume, an extinct volcanic crater and walked along the coast marvelling at the rock formations. All of this was overseen by the Snæfellsjökull glacier. The scenery of mountains, glaciers and lava beds was magnificent.
Here are a few photos to give you a taster of the wonderful day. I want to see more of Iceland.
There is a video on YouTube with more photos of this day in Iceland. You can watch it below:
