Last on the list for day one was the Gerduberg basalt columns - an imposing geometric rock formation.
If you're wearing decent footwear and don't mind a few moments of terror, you can climb to the top for lovely views.
Or, if you're like the two tourists who were there at the same time as us, you could spend 40 minutes picking up chunks of ice from the stream at the foot of the rock formation and breaking them on your own head in an attempt to get the perfect pic for the 'gram.
...The choice is yours.
We stayed at Við Hafið Guesthouse
. Rooms were small and basic with shared bathroom facilities, but it was a lovely atmosphere, and there were shared living areas and a big kitchen to cook in.
