Akureyri Iceland July 15
The day dawned overcast with a threat of rain. The run down the fjord was wonderful, but with all of the low lying clouds you could not see the mountain tops on either side. We were up around 4:30 as that was the time we were supposed to be entering the fjord, and went up to the crows nest to watch the scenery. We booked the Lake Myvatn tour through HAL which was an 8 hour bus tour with stops along the way. Ate breakfast in the Lido and off the ship we went to get on our bus.
While we later found out that the town itself never did get any rain, we did have some on and off during the tour. The wind however was another story. Very brisk which pushed the temperatures down into the 40’s. The tour was interesting and we stopped at an overlook where we could get a picture of the harbor and the ship at dock. Our first stop was at the Godafoss waterfalls. While small, they were quite beautiful. Other sites we saw including lava fields etc. A nice lunch was provided as well.
Overall we enjoyed the tour, but 8 hours on the bus is a bit much, and I most likely would not do a tour this long again.
