snow 26 °F


All we wanted to do was to go from the charming little town of Seydisfjord to Eglosstodir, a mere 15 miles away. But it took an hour to climb the mountain, driving up into a cloud where we couldn’t see anything but white (you will recognize the photos) and then switching back and forth down the other side. We were going to Vök baths, floating pools of geothermally heated water floating in a lake. It is COLD in Iceland, and the lake was 33 degrees; the pools were 88 degrees, 91 degrees, and 95 degrees! Getting from one to another in a wet bathing suit was quite a challenge, but the real bravery came in those who jumped (VERY briefly) into the lake. (Yay, Bruce!) And the reward? Cold beer or champagne at the outdoor bar.
