Iceland - Hvistikur - Snaefellsnes

March 30, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Closing the circle of the ring road No1 by driving from Hvistikur to Snaefellsness again, we decide to go on the south side of Snaefellsness, because the forecast for cloud coverage was a little bit better than on the north side and we have an new chance to see some Aurora. Beside the street we see some small houses of the trolls what should be a good sign for the night.
And Yes, later when we drove over the mountain pass road to go to the south side we stop at an side way in the mountains when then the show begins. So the forecast was right and we get an new show of the green light we were hunting the most time for. It was amazing show because it was really strong and the colors changes from green to purple and the beams are directly above our heads. We are the only one at that area and it was a wonderful feeling again.
Later on we drove with a good feeling to the beach on the south side and found a nice area for sleeping close to an church. There was still some Aurora light in the sky which illuminate also wonderful the church and due to the coast side a nice noise of the surf was the background sound.
At the next morning we take a little walk into the dunes and have a very nice sunrise with a great view to the Snaefellsjökul glacier which were illuminated of the rising sun.
Now we can drive to the north of Snaefellsnes again by driving along the western coast circle..another good weather forecast is visible and we want to catch the Kirkjufell with Aurora. Let see if we can trust the forecast.

The sky is burning in different colors
