Waterfalls in Iceland: Glymur

“It’s the second-highest.” “No, it’s the highest.” “No, it used to be the highest, then they found another one.” “I refuse to believe you! Prove it!” “There’s no signal.” “Ha! See, I was right!” So went the argument as we enjoyed a break from the most un-Icelandic heat of a summer’s day, sitting in front of Glymur, the second-highest waterfall in Iceland.

There is a campsite […]

I got a city bus to what I thought would be a main bus station, but turned out to be a bus shelter on the side of the road, for a 6.5hr journey to Akureyri. Turns out it’s the right stop, the driver takes visa (€90 one way) and there’s wifi and chargers and with regular rest stops it’s a plush […]
