Iceland Day 3 – June 10

Today’s leg is about 271 km and according to Google maps, about a 3 h 26 min drive.


Today is my attempt to get a puffin picture. Dyrhólaey Point is the home of a large puffin colony and the only place on the ring road where puffins can be easily accessed. Unfortunately, the weather was not good (for me not for puffins) & one could not be found. Damn.

Did you know that greater than 50% of Icelanders believe in elves. I am going to try to find one. I don’t think Mickey found one either.

The sign seems to indicate that this road is only for 4×4. While you know what they say: There is no place a 4×4 can go that a rental cannot.


I think I made a wrong turn here. Is this really a road? Yup, can’t you see the yellow markers ?


I searched through this entire plane & could not find an Elf.


I searched all theses turf houses as well.


After all that searching, I needed a rest.


Did I mention how expensive food is here. A simple bowl of soup of the day = $20.00 Canadian. That is not a mistake. I have found a cheaper alternative which is available at every gas station. Very nutritious.


Tell Megan that I witnessed a birth today of a brand new baby iceberg. It was so cute.
