Day 13 in Iceland: From Flúðir to Landmannalaugar (168km)
Before going to Landmannalaugar, we did some shopping in Flúðir and as we went on our way I wanted to fill up diesel at Árnes. The latter was not possible, Árnes, was out of diesel. The fuel station had not taken the effort of putting a note at the gas pump, so everybody was trying to fill up and they were desperately waiting for the pump to start.
We had to drive back to Flúðir to fill up. Finally we got on our way to Landmannalaugar, and our first river crossing.
It was exciting to drive into a real river. We had first watched other cars crossing. After a while we came to a crossing were there were no other cars crossing, I got my boots out and waded through the river to check its depth and check for big rocks. After several crossings we came to the test near Landmannalaugar, the river was wider and deeper.
Many cars were parked just before the river and campsite. We continued to the camping and the crossing was exciting and we really enjoyed it.
It was cold and raining, we decided to have snacks and beer.
