Remotness of the North: Hvitserkur, Godafoss, Dettifoss and more-

North Iceland: 

We stayed at Hotel Borgarvirki located east of Vatnsnes peninsula- 18 kms from the Ring Road and close to the rock formation of Hvitserkur. Driving across the northern part of the Island included visiting stunning Godafoss, Powerfull Dettifoss, Selfoss and surrounding waterfalls and Myvtan Nature Bath which is also known as the Blue Lagoon of the North.

Making our way to our next night’s stay- private cottages (Solbrekka Guesthouses, Mjóifjörður)  located on Eastern Fjords was quite an experience. Making our way to the Mjóifjörður driving on a narrow road, crossing the mountain range and ice-fields, making sharp turns along steep cliffs, passing through unexpected dense fog with zero visibility certainly gave us plenty of adrenaline spikes.

Photo description clockwise: Icelandic Turf houses along the way, Selfoss- a beautiful small waterfall near Dettifoss (I strongly advise not to miss this one), mighty Dettifoss- most powerful waterfall  of the Europe, more turf houses, geothermal pools in Mývatn District- an active volcanic area of the north, Icefield on our drive to the Eastern Fjords, the unique lava rock formation of Hvitserkur located on Vatnsnes peninsula, Selfoss again and the Godafoss- one of the most spectacular waterfalls of the north.
