Day 6 actually started in the wee hours of the morning, how can you sleep when you’re looking for the Northern Lights? They did make an appearance, looking like wispy cloud to the naked eye, a little more pronounced in the pictures.
After a beautiful sunrise, we were off for another day. First stop was the beach across from the Jokulsarlon lagoon. Glacial ice on a black sand beach at sunrise isn’t a bad way to start your day!
Then across the road to the main event… The pictures just can’t capture the peace and serenity of the lagoon and I certainly don’t have the words to describe it.
It was back to the beach, but this time on the other side of the river.
Back on the bus, next up was a glacier hike. We opted to stay back at the staging area and take photographs rather than doing the hike, a good choice I think.
Our last stop was at a traditional Icelandic Turf House, high atop a hill overlooking the black sand beaches of the tidal basin.
