Friday, August 19: After we finish our hike to the Tvisongur sound sculpture, we drive back into town in search of a hike that is supposedly on the north side of the fjord. Before proceeding very far, we have to stop and wander around the pretty marina; it’s especially picturesque now that the sun is finally coming out.
We then take a little walk through the town, stopping and asking someone at Tourist Information about possible hikes.
Earlier this morning, the town was all fogged in, so we have to capture some pictures of it in the sunshine.
We head to our hotel to grab some lunch at the picnic tables near the estuary. Nearly every day in Iceland, as breakfast is usually provided in the hotel and we treat ourselves to a nice dinner, for lunch we have bread and cheese and fruit and some kind of snack (cookies or chips).
After our lunch, we’re off to hike along the waterfall-filled river Fjarðará, to the west of town on Route 93 toward Egilsstaðir.
