Iceland Trip - Sights (part 3)

Here are some pictures of the Southwest coast of Iceland.

Sólheimajökull glacier

If you're in good physical shape, you can sign up for a 3 hour tour and walk on the ice field with some glacier guides.

On our way to the glacier, we drove by many areas that were flooded due to the eruption of Eyjafjallajökull in April-May 2010 that stopped European air-travel for a while.


These are impressive basalt columns visible from this black sand beach or from the village of Vik.

After a stop at the Skogar folk museum, we saw two waterfalls, Skógafoss (above) and Seljalandsfoss (behind which you can walk during summertime).
