{iceland} ring road day 7

February 25, 2017

This seventh day in Iceland was magical. It started magically because the sixth day almost never ended. We spent the night in a converted van right on the Eyjafjördur Fjord just north of Akureyri and saw the setting and simultaneous rising of the midnight sun. It was so magical! This one was definitely a bucket list winner!

Leaving Akureyri, we stopped in Hofsós, which is famous for its geothermal pools and spent some time enjoying the waters there before driving though horse country. Multiple times we stopped along the road to get up close with these Icelandic beauties. Then we spent the afternoon hiking the Koluglijufur Gorge in Vídidalsvehur, which was exceptionally beautiful. It was neat to see just how deep the river had carved into the rocks here and while maybe not as impressive as some of the gorges in France or the Grand Canyon, it was almost a different type of awe because you could still see the rushing water from the cliff tops.
