Jökulsálon (the Glacial Lagoon). The icebergs floating out to see are just amazing. We will have a nice seafood dinner in the fishingtown of Höfn. Then we will continue to Djúpivogur. This is a beautiful, lonely, winding road along the coast and fjörds, just perfect for seeing northern lights, with no light pollution.
Today we will travel north along the east fjörd villages. Each village in the east fjörds has it´s own beauty and character. The main industry is fishing. We can stop for a swim in Eskifjörður, or at one of the new Spa´s outside of Egilsstaðir. We will have a nice lunch, a hike, and then head north to Þórshöfn. In Þórshöfn we will have a special Icelandic Feast upon arrival. In the evening we will set out to the old airport where there is a nice DC- 3 that crash landed in the 1960s. It makes a perfect back drop for photos with the northern lights.
