Iceland Vlog 5 – Snow Storms, Caves and Hot Pools



Day 5 – Started at Grjótagjá cave then went to Dimmuborgir, Godafoss, some random geothermal hot pool and ended the day near Hvítserkur.

Grjótagjá is a small lava cave near lake Mývatn with a thermal spring inside. In early 18th century the outlaw Jón Markússon lived there and used the cave for bathing. Until the 1970s Grjótagjá was a popular bathing site.

Then we went to Dimmuborgir; a large area of unusually shaped lava fields east of Mývatn in Iceland. The Dimmuborgir area is composed of various volcanic caves and rock formations, reminiscent of an ancient collapsed citadel. We got some drone footage there, nothing special.

Then we hit a snow storm at the Godafoss (Waterfall of the Gods). It’s one of the most spectacular waterfalls in Iceland. It is located in the Bárðardalur district of North-Central Iceland at the beginning of the Sprengisandur highland road.

After the snow storm blew over we hunted down another natural hot spring hot pool to wash and chill in. Instead we found lovely horses and a lukewarm one that isn’t easy to get to…

We ended the day at Hvítserkur.

So yeah, here’s my Iceland travel Vlog 5 (+GoPro and Drone footage). As I said before, I’m hoping to get like super famous and be like the best YouTube travel blogger ever like 3 times better than casey neistat and pewdiepie. So if you could share this with all your friends and family it would be a big boost to my ego. I personally think this is the greatest Iceland Vlog ever made. We head around the Iceland ring road anticlockwise in a camper van (#vanlife) on a budget.
