Amazing Iceland - Caving and Reykjavik

Had to wear hats and headlights
Our last full day in Iceland, Wednesday 21st March, we went caving in the lava tubes. It was pretty cool - we had to climb through a snow covered entrance, and there were icicles hanging off the roof. Although, they were starting to melt. It would have been amazing to see what the caves would be like in the middle of winter.

Going down!

Some poor sheep made it in...

Lava turd. hehehe

Climbing back out

Friendly kitty - love the bandana!
That afternoon we had spare, so we spent a bit of time exploring Reykjavik. It's a small town, but very pretty. We met a friendly ginger cat, who decided to follow us for a bit. She even followed us up the stairs to the little cafe where we had lunch - naughty thing!

The church

Beautiful afternoon in Reykjavik

Reykjavik Harbour

After dinner (more about that in the food tour post, coming soon!) we went back to the hotel to get ready for the early pick-up (5.30am) the next morning for our flight back to London. And sadly our time in Iceland was over :( It was one of my favourite holidays though, and I would love to go back and explore more of Iceland - there is lots more to see and do. I'd especially love to see Iceland in the summer, with it's extra long daylight hours, and when the puffins come! If you're ever over Europe way, I would definitely recommend a stop in Iceland, it is well worth it!!

I like how the only noteworthy local is the ginger cat. Btw you may find me tagging along on your next trip to Iceland.
