After a three-hour drive we got down to the south coast - to Hofn.
Vatnajökull glacier is what grabs your attention here. It is huge. Near where we're staying we can see two outlet glaciers, Hoffelssjökull and Flaajökul, both with decent gravel tracks up to them.
After all the excitement of the ice (and seeing two surprise Ptarmigan pottering about) we headed off to spend £16 EACH for a burger. I quite fancied anything but burger - but the prices are just ridiculous. It's the first meal we've had to buy in a while though as Stu's been cooking for the past week.
Top tip: if travelling to Iceland in the Summer - bring a hell of a lot of money. And warn family, in advance, that they might only get a satsuma this Christmas.
Early to bed tonight - we have a long day of sightseeing ahead. I want to get up early and try to beat the crowds to the glacier lake in the morning. That's the plan. Unless there is a stunning sunset tonight. Then I might just stay up to watch it.
