We woke up the next morning, grabbed breakfast at the hotel, and layered on our warmest clothes. Since we weren't flying out until the next morning, we were going to spend the day doing an Essential Iceland superjeep tour! Shortly after breakfast our driver picked us up in a jeep with HUGE tires; after picking up a couple more people, we left the city and headed north.
Our first stop was Thingvellir (or Þingvellir, if you want to be really Icelandic). We stopped here briefly last year, but this time we actually got to walk around a bit and got a much better view.
Our jeep and most of the people on our little tour. It was really nice to have such a small group; aside from me and Mark there was a couple from Japan, a guy from Germany, and a guy from Australia who had taken four months off to travel all over the world.
The lava field stretched out for miles. It's crazy to think that just a little more than a thousand years ago this was all fire and molten rock.
