Seydisfjordur was pretty barren for an early breakfast, but we found a simple-but-tasty hostel for breakfast in Egilsstadir. Tea timer was kind of fun too-- never seen one like this before!
Studagil Canyon (more basalt columns, this time with the Jokulsa River running through them) was the first stop. Has a little waterfall early on the trail, too, and a busy little parking area. It's on private property and the farmer did not look happy with all the ***holes cutting the trail and damaging his land.
Hverir geothermal area was the next stop. Different from anything else we'd seen so far on the trip. Not quite the same scale as Yellowstone's Grand Prismatic Spring, this was far more approachable, kind of wish we had more time to soak in the otherworldly landscape. And also not, given the smell of sulfur from all the geothermal vents.
Laxa i Adaldal (Laxa River) for a day and a half of fly fishing was next. Our guides were superb even with this relatively short half day of fishing, and Erik and Katie were definitely stoked for the next day. Caught my first fish in three trips, too!
Dinner was at the guesthouse restaurant. Guesthouse Brekka near Myvatn served a decent but forgettable meal, with a tasty gravlax as the higlight. Also have to give the soup credit, especially after freezing in the river for whole afternoon. Of minor note was that they had one of the few "deals" we saw while there, advertising an entire soup/entree/dessert for basically the price of the entree, which was ISK 5000 or so.
