Follow my wife and me on a 3-week trip of Iceland.
Day 12 in Iceland: From Geysir via Kjölur to Flúðir (254km)
The weather, the last days, had become really good and even warm at times. Today we decided to go towards Kjölur road F35, we wanted to visit Hveravellir and Kerlingarfjöll and then move south.
The road was gravel, and at time a bit rough gravel, but no problem.
On the way we notice a lot of garbage on the road, every kilometre we saw boxes and bottles. As I stopped to pick up a box I noticed this was someone’s stock, from now on we started picking up all we saw. There was even a sleeping bag on the road, this meant someone would be very unhappy at night in an area were there are no shops.
At the viewpoint next to the road we noticed a van with a trailer with a broken rear door. The people were excited and ran to us to ask if we had seen some of their things.
They were very happy about all the things we had collected, and the driver went back to collect the first things we had not picked up. As I had tools with me we could also fix the door hinge. We arrived at Hveravellir and had a nice walk through the geothermal filed. The colours were beautiful. We decided to turn back and go to Kerlingarfjöll, the mountains had a very special look that I cannot describe, watch the video. They were red, yellow and with green moss.
After a great walk in Kerlingarfjöll, we continued south and decided to go to the camping at Flúðir. The girl at the camping was complaining about the heat? She was Italian???? On a summer job. She could speak Icelandic, however I am not able to judge how well.
