Iceland: Grabrok Crater

I left my heart in Akureyri. After seeing so many amazing places, I fell in love with this town: the hearts, the fjord, the mountains, daylight until 10pm, the sunshine and more. It was hard for me to leave this part of Iceland.

But it was time for us to travel to Reykjavic, 380 km.

Here are some beautiful views from the road:

The biggest attraction we have found on the way to Reykjavic was walking on a volcano:

Grabrok Crater can be ascended by a marked, very confortable trail from the main Ring Road no. 1.

An interesting fact about Iceland:

Iceland is sometimes called “the Land of Contrasts” for the rich, sharp colours of its mountains, rocks and vegetation, its dramatic waterfalls, glaciers, geysers and its massive ice fields. Iceland measures 103,000 kmin area but less than one-quarter has any vegetation cover. Glaciers cover 12%, lava fields 11% and lakes 3%, while 54% is barren rock and sand.

And then we continued on this winding Ring Road…
