Snorri was a great historian and saga writer, born in the 12th century, who lived at Reykholt. Two stunning waterfalls are next, Barnafoss waterfall has a tragic but interesting legend linked to its naming, Barnafoss means ‘Children´s Falls’ in English. Your guide will, no doubt, tell you the tale of the two children who fell to their deaths from a nearby bridge. Hraunfossar waterfall is very different and totally unique, thousands of small streams pour out of the lava, creating the sensational sweeping crescent-shaped falls. The glacial water is very pure and cold! It has flowed underground through the Hallmundarhraun lava field, from Langjökull, the second-largest glacier in Iceland. We head through picturesque scenery towards the Snæfellsnes peninsula. We have time to see the incredible wall of basalt columns at Gerðuberg, before driving to our hotel in the Snæfellsnes area.
We relax and enjoy dinner, your guide will share the northern lights forecast with you. Hopefully, the forecast is favorable and a *northern lights watch is on. Will your aurora luck be good tonight? As always, we have to wait and see!
