Day 4: Waterfalls, Volcanoes, Phallic Specimens & More / Iceland

Waterfalls, volcanoes, phallic specimens, turf houses and lighthouses. We had another very full day.

We started our morning with the Knarrós Lighthouse. Then made a quick stop at Bobby Fischer’s grave (a famous American chess player who moved to Iceland).

Then we went back to Reykjavík to grab some camping supplies and stopped at the Icelandic Phallological Museum. This made us both pretty nauseous so skip the pics if you don’t want to see preserved parts.

We then drove out to visit some turf houses!

They were an innovative way for the Icelanders to insulate their homes way back in the old days.

On the way to the waterfalls we stopped at the Lava Center, an interactive museum about the volcanoes and earthquakes in Iceland.

Seljalandsfoss & Skógafoss

Finally we had lots of fun at two amazing and famous waterfalls, Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss. We were able to walk right behind the first one, and walk close up to the second.

Vik and the Black Sand Beach

We spent the night in a town called Vik where the beach has black sand. Addam had fun flying his drone and we chatted in broken English with a local couple who didn’t seem to mind the infestation of tourists in their quiet town.
