Day 4, afternoon – The Glacial Lagoon

After an adventurous morning, we settled down to have the fourth soup of the trip! Our standards were high after the tasty tomato soup, that we had the day before, but asparagus soup wasn’t as popular however, with a “side dish” of unlimited fresh Icelandic bread we were all satisfied with lunch.

After lunch, we visited the glacier lagoon and took some cool pics with a couple of games of search for the seal and skimming stones (before getting told off for ruining “the serenity” of the scene). Nevertheless, our day kept improving as we walked along the river side to the black sand beach where ice bergs had washed up from the lagoon. On the beach, we had lots of fun taking photos and climbing on the ice. The day was rounded off with a spa visit to the hot tub and sauna.

  1. Hi Freya and all the girls,
    What a stunning trip. It looks amazing and great to read the daily updates, especially about all that delicious soup! 🙂 We’re missing you lots at home…have wonderful next few days and can’t wait to see all the pictures. Lots of love Mum & Cameron xxx (PS Cameron says “Have you found some water you can row on yet?!!”)

  2. Hi Pippa J,
    I loved the pictures of the glaciers and the black sand and sitting on washed up icebergs – very cool. Iceland looks fantastic. We went for a walk with Daisy round East Head today, the wind was bitterly cold and coming from the East. She had a sand beard by the time we left. Daisy misses you and sends you lots of cuddles.
    Lots of love
    Mum and Dad.
