We ended up with a big adventure today, with much of the day driving slowly down a totally remote, unpaved road, in a snow storm. Pictures and video coming soon.
We started from our hotel in Reykjahlid (Hotel Reykjahlid, which is really lovely) on Lake Myvatn (also really lovely), and headed out to get to Husavik via the route
85 864 (edited: route 85 was the nice road we got to later, after 864) where we would see the Dettifoss waterfalls. En route, we also tried to see the lava fields by the Krafla Geothermal Plant—we couldn’t see any bubbling sulfur through the snow, though we saw lots of lava rocks (comparable to the Big Island of Hawaii).
And, anyway, lots of snow and unpaved roads, and then a beautiful drive along the coast of the Arctic Ocean to get to Husavik—and we had some fine pizza (at Salka) and a nice visit to the local baths, and now we’re warm and safe in a room at the Fosshotel Husavik.
More photos and video in a day or so—the next evening we’re sitting around with web access.
