Snæfellsnes peninsula

With a few workmates, we decided to take a few days off together and visit the Snæfellsnes peninsula, just north of Reykjavík. We rented a summer house (very popular in Iceland) and there we went.
Three hours drive to get to the house, after work, but the sun sets late during the summer, so no problem with the visibility or else. Really nice accommodation, where we rapidly felt comfortable. Once dinner was over, time to sleep to enjoy the next day…
After a lazy start, we were finally on the road, enjoying the sights and all: waterfalls, mountains, the ocean…
We also went into Vatnshellir, the cave where Jules Verne set the departure for his “Voyage au centre de la Terre” (“Journey to the centre of the Earth”). They do a fun experience, to let you in total darkness for a minute… Quite strange…
After that, we ran out of time, so we rushed our way back on the north coast, which I am sure would have been worth of more of our attention… Next time… Once at “home” we played some football with the neighbour’s dogs, had dinner and relaxed.
Next morning, after cleaning the house, we drove back to Gullfoss, stopping on the way, to see some more waterfalls, and be real tourists.
So, it was a nice week-end away, in good company. Needed before the busy summer…
