Sep 2018 - Transatlantic Viking Route to New York - Day 6



Day 2 in Iceland is a very early start. The Jade departs at 5pm (All aboard 4pm) and most tours to the south coast dont get back till much later - IGT have picked us up earlier than a usual tour to make use of the time and light.  It has snowed overnight leaving a dusting of crisp snow over the hills and mountains.


First stop is Skogafoss waterfall. Skógafoss is one of the biggest waterfalls in Iceland, with a drop of more than 60 meters and a width of 25 meters, and you can walk right up to, but be prepared to be drenched.



Its always hard to get a sense of scale but the little ants on the viewing platform at the top gives you some idea.


From here we drive further south and inland heading to the Glacier Mýrdalsjökull


As we hike towards it the wind is biting and so cold its actually quite hard to catch your breath.
