In this video, we cover the 2nd part of our travel starting from Klausturvegur through southern coastal road and up to the east-central part of the country and stopping at a small farm at Laugarvatn. The drive took us through famous black beaches of Iceland. It was some experience driving off-road on these beaches!. Next on our way was the site of the ‘famous’ crashed US Navy plane. Though it was sunny in patches, it was extremely windy… we were pretty close to giving up while hiking 8 km to and from the icy coast where the crash site was.
But the welcome stopover at Vik, where we got some hot traditional Icelandic soup and food was rejuvenating. We continued through the evening to reach the famous waterfalls – the Skogafoss and the Seljalandsfoss. Standing behind a waterfall was something I hadn’t experienced before till I was at Seljalandsfoss. Continuing our drive, when we finally reached out stop for the night, it was already past 2:00 am. But who would have guessed… the sun was still up in the horizon!
