We started at around 4AM. The hike was the opposite direction from the day before. Up next to a waterfall, crossing patches of snow until the pass where we could see Veidileysufjördur.

Almost at sea level the clouds lifted and the sun came out. We waited for the boat at the campsite.

After arriving at Isarfjördur we ate some lunch and drove all the way down to Stori Kalfalaekur, the horse farm Kerstin was going to work for the next week while i was driving around alone in a camper.

After saying goodbye i continued to the Snaefellsness Peninsula to the famous Kirkjufell mountain.
