Water in three forms

Aug 11, 2015


Our stupendous day started with a very early morning followed by a delicious breakfast. The journey to Seljalandsfoss took half an hour and we were greeted by the sight of a spectacular waterfall which we were able to walk behind. We then walked a short way to the secret waterfall which was hidden by a gorge and a giant rock. We then had a short coach trip to Eyjafjallajökull visitor centre for a short stop to take photos of the volcano that took Europe to a standstill. Then we made our way to Skógafoss were we experienced the sheer destructive force of the waterfall taller than Niagara Falls. We journeyed to the glacier Solheimajökull were we were able to see first hand how the glacier has retreated in a few years. We then travelled to southern most village in Iceland, Vik. We then managed to get a plate of chips, go to the supermarket and buy souvenirs. Next we saw the world famous black sand beach were we saw some first hand examples of coastal erosion features like stacks, arches and stumps. We also saw the basalt columns. We then finished the day with a dip in the local pool and a quiz night.
