We’re doing Fjotsdalshreppur and Laki today. Fjotsdalshreppur is basically a canyon with a beautiful waterfall and river at the bottom. I went right up to the cliff side and that was so cool. Laki was even cooler in a way. You have to drive on an F-Road and there's about 4 river crossings with no bridges. I was laughing at every crossing cause it was so funny to see the family screaming saying the car is going to flood! I mean the facial expressions were priceless.
The car didn't anyway flood but the rivers were getting bigger cause of rain. Laki is a field of lava (dried lava unfortunately) and at the end of the road (took us about 1 hour) there's these gorgeous mountains you hike to get these beautiful views of the valley and lava fields. Going down the mountain while its raining is a different story… it was slippery and steep and my family and I were basically jogging down the mountain lmao to get back to the car as fast as possible.
