Iceland Cruise 18 – An Afternoon In Reykjavik, Iceland

Scroll down to content

Today in Scotland the 8th May 2018, the weather was the same as yesterday, wet morning, nice afternoon, so better than rain all day.  Tomorrow we are going on an all day trip to find wildlife on the Isle of Mull, fingers cross the weather is kind to us.  But back to our Iceland cruise……. After our snow drive in the 4 x 4, we spent the afternoon in Iceland’s capital city Reykjavik, from the Icelandic rejkja meaning “smoky’ referring to the steam, from its many hot springs.  I did mention in my pervious post about people falling over, well I didn’t fall over, but I did go over on my ankle, and it hampered my walking powers, somewhat.  So I didn’t get to explore as much as I wanted to, but I did manage to get to the Hallgrimskirkja Cathedral, I was really looking forward to visiting this amazing building, only to be told on entering, it was closed all afternoon, due to a funeral…… oh well lets find somewhere to eat.  We did find a wonderful Icelandic restaurant and had the most amazing fish stew.  Afterwards, we did jumper shopping, and yes I did buy one, but I wasn’t allow to buy the polar bear…… so I took a photo.  I took a few more photos, then we caught the bus back to the ship, so I could rest my foot, as the next day, was an all day trip for exploring the ‘Golden Circle’

  1. That cathedral is stunning! Hope you get to go back someday. Is that one of Odin’s ravens that you found? 🙂

  2. That polar almost looked real! I would love to have one of those little Dragon boats! Interesting info board. Twisted ankle can be painful,hope it’s back to normal by now!

    1. Thank you, yes the ankle is fine now 🙂 I really want the bear. When we were in the USA a few years ago, I brought a big brown one back, he was too big for a suitcase, so I had to carry him, got some funny looks, as he look so real 🙂
