Iceland in May 2015 ~ Day 4. From Reykjavik to Snæfellsnes.

Day 4 in Iceland started with breakfast from Sandholt bakery again. We checked out of our apartment rental in Reykjavik and packed up our car to head to the Snaefellsnes Peninsula.

We checked into the Hotel Búðir and grabbed some delicious soup for lunch from the hotel lounge/bar area.

Afterwards, we drove around the Snaefellsnes Peninsula and explored the area.

Rauðfeldsgjá Gorge is a cool sightseeing spot where a troll is rumored to live. It felt like a magical experience climbing here, but scary too. There were rocks of all sizes, running water, snow, and ice making it a difficult to trek up and down. A swarm of birds circle above you as you take in the mystical sights of the beauty around you.  I would not recommend climbing up here with young children, elderly, or the injured.  Perhaps it’s easier to climb in the summertime.

There was a lot of rain and fog on the day we were here, so we did not get to see as much as we expected. It was still a beautiful sight and fun experience.

Some pictures from Sacholl Crater.

We had dinner that night at the Hotel Búðir‘s restaurant and then hung out in the bar area afterwards with a bottle of wine. Kraig taught me how to play chess, but now I forget all the rules.
