Iceland 2016: Snaefellsnes National Park

We started the day intending to visit Sanefellsnes National Park, but immediately upon leaving town saw a beautiful waterfall and stopped for a quick hike and picture.

We actually spent most of our time in the park at Djupalonssandur beach, which was a black sand beach with beautiful views of the mountain and glaciers. Both kids enjoyed playing on the beach and watching the wind and waves.

A park ranger, however, gave me a tip, which was that right outside the park, there was a crack in the mountain with a canyon inside that was worth a visit. We went in and indeed, it was very strange to feel the strong wind on the coast blowing hard and then suddenly disappear as we approached the canyon entrance and then see the sky go away once we entered the canyon proper.

Returning back to Grundarfjordur, we had a fairly late dinner and prepared for a return to Reykjavik the next day.
