    Sights Around Hofn...

    Hofn in Iceland

    Fondest memory: The population of Hofn is about 1600.
    It's not a big town. Hofn is also the last destination of buses from Reykjavik, on the 'Ring Road', travelling in the south of Iceland.
    The Ring Road is the main road to circle Iceland.
    Walked pass the football field, saw these 2 kids were still playing just outside their house !
    It was really in the middle of the 'night' but maybe they didn't care as long as they could still play...Their parents were probably sleeping !
    I took a photo of them; Cute Icelandic kids.
    Another fondest memory for me !
    This was also my last photo in Hofn, on the first night. The 2nd night, after coming back from Jokulsarlon, I didn't go out because I was so tired & besides, I had to sleep early for another bus journey to the north of Iceland !

    On the way walking back from taking the photos around Hofn, I passed through this football field.
    It's a big field but nobody was around. Maybe everybody was sleeping as it was during 12 am (12 midnight ?) when I was there near the field !
    To me it was a nice feeling indeed !

    This photo taken by me showing how Hofn would look like.
    The swimming pool (outdoor), the bank, the post office, the supermarket (...and of course the 'smelly' harbour) are all within easy walking distance from Hofn Youth Hostel.

    Life Jackets

    by annk Written Feb 25, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fondest memory: We were required to wear life jackets, all straps fastened and securely snug. If anyone fell over, I can't imagine surviving in the icy waters for more than a few minutes. The guides said luckily this has never happened.

    Jokulsarlon Lagoon - View from the beach

    by annk Written Feb 25, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The Jokulsarlon which means 'Glacial River Lagoon' is several miles long & wide and is one of Iceland's deepest lakes. A walk along the edge of the lagoon is very rewarding as well.

    Fondest memory: Our second destination was a spectacular cruise amongst icebergs, pure white, colbalt blue, or variegated, streaked with sediment. The scenery was breathtaking and exceeded all expectations.
