Trip to Iceland - Day 2.

The next day in Iceland we've seen the beautiful Seljalandsfoss waterfall, Eyjafjallajökull glacier and the wonderful nature that Iceland hides in its mountains.

strong wind in Iceland

Because of the strong wind and ice it is almost impossible to stand here.

water just floating out of the mountains

As you keep going you see water just floating out of the mountains.

Water in Iceland

Since this water comes from the glaciers it's extremely clear.

Eyjafjallajökull volcano

Not the easiest road to be honest

Not the easiest road to be honest.

Iceland on your own

I'm not sure if it's a good idea to come to Iceland on your own and renting a car. I would never try to come to these places if I was on my own. And even if I wanted I wouldn't be able to as well.

Closing in to the glacier

Closing in to the glacier. The lava from the eruption of the Eyjafjallajökull was going right through this valley. You can see a light blue ice in front of you.

very old ice

This is very old ice that got uncovered after the eruption and that has been hidden underneath the upper layers of the ice for thousands of years.

one of the glaciers

It's hard to see it on a photo but it's really huge. And this is just one of the glaciers coming down from this mountain.

I guess it's impossible to drive here. Interesting that signs are chained to the ground so that they wouldn't be blown away by strong winds.

It looks like the river floating down the valley. But in reality it's an ash from volcano. This is were the lava went during the eruption.
